Since we had a football game in the northern part of the state we decided to take advantage of the proximity to Kylee, Conner and Nixon in Logan.  We loaded up Luke and Tanner to come along for the fun!

Our game was in Coalville (No. Summit), and it rained on and off throughout.  The boys weren't phased in the least.  They spent the entire game underneath the bleachers, I'm sure conjuring up all sorts of adventures in their minds.

Kylee and Conner live right by a beautiful trail that runs along the Logan River.  The boys could explore the area for hours at a time!

They even got Bampa to make the treacherous journey across the river

From dangerous excursions in the wild jungles of Logan to showing their diversity as up and coming artists, these two don't miss a beat!

I watched the weather forecast during the week and decided that it was going to be cool and rainy while we were there so I never even considered taking our swimsuits.  Well the boys had other things in mind and since there were still small patches of blue in the sky they were insistent that we go swimming.  George and I went to Walmart in hopes of finding some deals on close-out swim suits.  We got lucky!  George picked up a $5.00 suit with "Land Shark" written all over it.  It was perfect!! I was only able to find half a suit in my size so I bought a pair of tan underwear and jokingly told Kylee that I figured they'd pass as bottoms.  It was quite funny!  She kept insisting they'd be too see through but I assured her I'd be spending most my time in the water so it wouldn't matter anyway.  She found me a pair shorts to wear, just to be on the safe side.

You couldn't wipe the grin off that kids face!

Luke finding he's braver than he thought
We're all taking advantage of those few and far between patches of blue sky

Next, onto showing more BOY skills at the bowling alley.  I really needed some BOY skills that night, bumpers or not, the little guys whooped me!!

After a fun day loaded with all sorts of activities that little boys love, you can only imagine that familiar little boy scent! 
They're smelling good now!

Madden can't wait until he gets to join the boys in all the fun!



  1. We sure had a great time. I thought that picture of Madden was Nixon. We have a picture exactly like that! How funny!

  2. Looks like they had a great time! They're lucky boys to have such fantastic grandparents!
