WATER SLIDE FUN FOR THE LAST DAY OF SWIM LESSONS
Crew really did have fun even though it looks like he is terrified! Probably because mom is drowning. I look rediculous in that last picture.



MaKayla & McKenzie had fun as usual too going down the slides.
DADDY DAUGHTER BBQ
Today we had the daddy daughter BBQ for Achievment days. It was fun besides the weather. The girls all went in the hot tub. Dads were being shy.
Then we had a three legged race.. here are the cheaters... O.k so they went back and re did it but lifting is not aloud!!!!!

Then the dads that had two girls each went. One tied to each leg. Scott and the girls left the Moultons way behind!
Hey! Where did they go???

BBQ with friends

We went this past weekend to One of my best friends house for a BBQ> Jen and I were roomates in college and have been dear friends ever since. They cooked us some great food and we had some good laughs. Isn't she darling!

I wanted to get a picture Of Jonah Jen's son and the girls. They have played together since they were teeny tiny. And of course every time I went to take a picture they would goof off no matter how much I begged.


And finally I get one where they are not goofing off and of course MaKayla is in the sun.

Swim lessons and hiding deer

NOT HAPPY TROOPERS.
So we showed up at swimming lessons today because they wrote the 16th on my card only to find out they started on Monday... that made me mad. Then the girls hated their swimming teacher Even Scott who usually says nothing commented that she was a natzi teacher. She thought it was like swimming boot camp. They were crying and carrying on about being sick. OK anyone that knows the girls knows they LOVE the water. They have looked forward to swimming lessons for weeks. You can see on their faces...Dad get me out of here.( Thanks Scott for taking pictures) I was unable since I was in the mommy tot class with Crew.
needless to say I switched their class they had to go down one level where there was a spot. Which did not matter to me since they are in the last level and know how to swim. i just wanted them to have fun. The manager said she has had other complaints..the problem is she is a swim coach for a swim team alot different than little kids. So we switched to the next time. WAALA they are happy and those belly aches magically went away. They love the new teacher. Seriously... arent swimming lessons about having fun too. SO All of us went double duty with lessons so i guess we made up for missing yesterday.

MaKayla & McKenzie after 8 pool laps. that was the first 10 minutes of class.

Mckenzie
Crew has loved the water since day 1. He loves the bath and wants to stay and splash, so it was no suprise to me that he would love swimming lessons. too. Even though he was the youngest one in the group, he did really well. especially for going through 2 sessions in one day.


I think he is still practicing bubbles. He didn't quite get it, but then again he is only 8 mnths. old. I can't expect miracles


With the Deer hunt coming up, our family With the insistance of Scott go out on drives to see what we can see. We drove up Squaw peek. it was pretty. the girls goofed off as usual when we got to the lookout. We did see a few deer pictured below.





Does he really think he is fooling anyone? I admit they are hard to see this time of year. But this buck had huge ears. They are just now starting to grow their horns.

Girls piano recital & Childrens art fair

Both girls did so good at their piano recital. I was so proud of them. They are such talented young girls.
thanks to Marta for being such a great piano teacher.

Since Scott works nights and sleeps during the day, I figured i would keep the kids out so he could get a better days sleep. So right after the piano recital i took the kids to the Provo Kids Arts and crafts fair. Crew was such a trooper too since it ended up being a really long day.

I was a little worried because we didn't bring sunblock and Just found out MaKayla is Allergic to the sun but we pretty much kept to the shade.

Ping Pong Painting




Of course we just had to do the face stencil station. Crew wiped his off after 5 seconds. Good thing I only did a smiley face because he wiped it all over his eyes. He was so tired look at him trying to stay awake.


I think everyones favorite was making the head crowns. Even Crew wore his. I was shocked he didn't take it off.
