Although summer always seems to go by way too fast it's fun to look back and remember the things we did and look forward to next summer for more good times.

I started my summer with a BANG!!  Me and a group of friends and family got a team together to run in the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay (detailed in an earlier post).  It was a great way to start the off the season and I'm hoping like heck to do it again!

 Next event of the summer was our annual "girls trip".  My mom, sisters, daughters, nieces, aunt, granddaughter, friend and grandson (Madden)

Luke's 8th Birthday
Cake was designed by him and made by his mom:)

4th of July Fireworks at Uncle Mike's
Rainstorms were a common occurance of the summer of 2011

This was supposed to be a pool day, but because of the rain we went to the splash pad where the rain and sprinklers all mixed together.  Fun day!
A rewarding treat after playing hard

One of our favorite summer days is Lavendar Days at Young Living Farms.

Running and races have been a big part of my summer.  I'm so excited that there is a growing interest within my family too!

A great day at the pool, and without RAIN!

So summer 2011 has basically come to an end.  Before I did this post I felt like it was over with before we were able to do much.  However it looks like to me we had a great summer.  I'm so grateful for the wonderful family and friends I'm blessed with to be able to spend it with.
