Our other visitors were my cute cousins: Lori, Rachel & Amy. One lives in the bay area, one lives in Missouri, and one lives in Provo. It was fun seeing them. We went up to my aunt and uncles house for the day and went swimming and had a BBQ.
Here's everyone that was at my mom & dads house:
Mom, Dad, Calen, Ben, Stormee, Me, Trinity, Kristen, Tucker, Scott, Kathy, & Bryce
Bryce & Calen are my two long lost cousins visiting from Alaska--I couldn't believe how big they were!
So its been busy for us around here for the past few weeks. And its not going to end any time soon, we have a lot of family coming in town and staying with us for Nathan and Angie's wedding. But I love visitors and I love going and going and staying busy, so I'm enjoying it. It will be nice to get back to some sort of routine though. Tuckers already been napping today for like 3 hours, the poor child was so sleep deprived because he's so social he hates to miss a thing, so never wanted to sleep while grandma was here. I should probably use this time to get going on the 15 loads of laundry I have to do and the 5 loads of dishes and the vacuuming and the dusting and the mopping and the...

I had to include a picture of the food. It was beautiful and SO good. Her sister went to culinary school, and made it all. I was seriously at that table all night! (those that know me know how much I LOVE food)
Just some girls I grew up with: Rachel, Stephanie and Jolee-it was fun catching up.
Wedding event #2: TJ's wedding. He had it up at Mt. Spokane and it was beautiful! Before the ceremony we took Tucker down to a little stream that ran right behind where they said their vows. He threw his little plastic Monkey toy right in. Bye-bye Monkey. We've lost a lot of toys that way this summer, in lakes, in streams, in rivers, wherever he can find.
Some of you may remember Jamie Miller (Reese, now--she married Jeff). She was there, and it was fun seeing her.
We had to book it out of there like right after the ceremony to make it to Wedding event #3, but I snapped this pic with the couple really quick.
Wedding event #3, Tucker and Carly! OK...not yet. But luckily Carly was at this one, so Tucker was OK with being there. It was a girl that I grew up with, who is also my friends niece. (who will always be like 10 years old to me, so it was kind of crazy, you know how that goes!) :) But she was beautiful and very happy! I don't actually have pictures of them though! oops!
Love these girls...
(two of them are sisters of the bride, and therefore bridesmaids, so that's why they are wearing the same dress, FYI)
Love these girls too...
So we're not quite so young & spry, we're still cute...right? :)

OK, so maybe you are one of the few people who can actually pull off short spiky platinum hair, and black hair with bangs, but that doesn't mean that it had to be done. :) But we still loved you. We have loved you through about 289 different hair colors and styles, and we deserve to see you now.
We were your friends when you wore tie-dyed shirts DOWN to your knees and white tube socks UP to your knees? (see pic.#1) We were your friends through countless hours of 'buns-of-steel' workouts on your bed. We even called into 93 zoo FM and requested a song from the 'Reality Bites' soundtrack (I can't remember which one) when you were sad about breaking up with a boyfriend. How many friends would have done that? We were so cool together! We could sleep out on the trampoline, just like the good ol' days--you and Jessy remember the FUN that happens on trampolines, right? So, we're not in the 9th grade anymore, we can make out with our husbands now. (will that convince Jason to come?)
PLUS... We want to see that little Olivia of yours so that we can share these (and many more) wonderful memories with her. She needs to know who her mama was in Jr. High! So you tell Jason that we DESERVE a visit! We have earned it!
Love you Cookie! (please don't hate me) :)

Allen, Kelli and Keyton came. (They just happened to be in town during the fire...) So we got some good playground time in.
We did discover Tuckers love for Trampoline jumping. (too bad Grandma & Grandpa got rid of theirs)
(Carly & Tucker spending as much time together as they can, the lovebirds) :)
Doing A LOT of this:
We got a pool membership and it has been the BEST! Tucker loves swimming and it is just perfect on a hot summer day!
And, of course, a little of this:
