the latest

it's about time i blogged
i know it has been a while
{so} much has happened as of lately
and i know that most of the people that read this have been a part of my summer happenings
i'll give an update
**photos mostly, because we all like those**
it made my day when my dad called me yesterday and told me
"you haven't updated your blog in a long time, you should do that...people follow it ya know."
so let's go back to the middle of june
(that seems like a good place to start)
ash -my sister- came to visit me in salt lake city
we had some fun filled summer nights
i love having her visit
i feel lucky when she comes around
we went out to dinner
we attended the farmers market
we hit up the utah arts festival with friends
her and i took off to zion national park
we needed some quality time in mother nature
 we hiked angel's landing
it was her first time
talk about a pro
a view from the top
we had sunny weather
 summer has been treating me well
we have had plenty of nights where we have been able to enjoy park time
 hippy horse shoes has been a top memory
then at the end of june
i was able to head to logan for this girl's birthday
happy birthday to AMY
we played kickball and enjoyed a BBQ
what a fun time
i will never pass up a time to visit that favorite little town
the first weekend of july
i went to idaho for a great irons family get together
we went deep into the beautiful mountains to our cabin at warm lake
jameson joined us
i think he was impressed by idaho's beauty
we had a great weekend away from the real world
 while we were there, we celebrated birthdays
july is a big month for our family
full of birthdays and anniversaries
my mom and dad did a great job planning
it was so beautiful up there
one of my most favorite places on this planet
then we made it back to slc for the 4th of july celebration
what a great holiday this is
 i love fireworks
i am proud to be an american
so proud
this year we watched them from sugarhouse park
after a few days 
i was off again
this time to minnesota
more lake time
more family time
ash got a harry potter cake for her b-day
grandma d always throws a great party
happy birthday to her
we also made bird cages with my grandparents 
i love the lakes of minnesota
don't let me fool you
i have stayed in salt lake too
it is always fun to get together with friends downtown
 plenty of summer dinner dates
i love patio dining
another week came and went
weekends = travel time
so we packed up and escaped on a trip to logan and bear lake
sunshine and summertime
babes relaxing in the sun
i love bear lake
amy was nice enough to have us all over 
the ivins are always great hosts

 summer is the best
