{This Goon & #3 & #33!}

The pesky summer checklist is done!
Yes, I know...fall is here, but still.
It's done!

We finished #3
(Cutting down flowers and putting them in vases in their rooms).
No pictures. Sorry.

And #33.
Saturday was ICON Lagoon Day,
and the ladies have been patiently waiting for it to come.
Last year when we went as we were walking
through the parking lot to buy our tickets
Sienna exclaimed very excitedly,
Since then, Lagoon is only called
this goon.
And the ladies still love it.
The weather wasn't fabulous this year
and it rained for the first hour we were there,
but the ladies didn't mind.
They were just so excited to be there,
and we were so proud of how brave
they were!
Rickety Roller Coaster. check.
Fire Dragon-check.
We didn't quite make it to Wicked...
next year.

It was great having the ladies tall enough to
go on rides together, while we watched from the sidelines.
We aren't big fans of those spinning rides-
cause, well we are old.
But they did love them, and were thrilled
that Selena Gomez was playing while on
the Music Express.
Yes, another picture taken of T and I,
by T and I.
He does love the camera.

It really was a great night.
No lines, lots of ride
and very happy ladies!

{As of Late}

My Goodness life is busy!
I had forgotten that when school begins..
homework begins.
And Dance class.
And Tavaci.
And Piano.
And I'm sure we've only just begun.

Here's a glimpse of what we've been up to.

Sienna and I joined Ads for lunch the other day.
She was very excited to see us....
and then chatted with her new best friend Kate
and ate as fast as she could so she could get to recces.
We felt very appreciated!
(Really, so glad she is loving school
and isn't homesick for all.)

We packed up last weekend and headed
to Park City for a little getaway.
We walked around Main Street
Friday night and ate dinner and then made a stop
at the Chocolate Factory for dessert.

And for breakfast Saturday morning...
T and I looking completely smashed.

We drove around the city for a bit
and then surprised the girls with the
Alpine Slide and Mountain Coaster.

They were nervous!

(Before we headed up the lift).
They made us promise we would use the brakes,
a lot.

And then as soon as we started going down the slide
they both wanted to go FASTER!
It was a complete blast.
The ladies laughed the entire way down.

After shot...aren't they cute?
Here we are headed up the coaster.
They adored this too,
it as just so much fun!
They asked right about here if we could go
a few more times.
Love taking these ladies to do new things.

The girls got out their flower box out the other day
and attacked poor dad while he was trying to relax.
I think he looks FABULOUS though...don't you?And lastly, Roo decided she wanted straight hair
for school the other day.
I think she looks lovely.But I adore her curls! Adore I say!
This week we are finishing off the last 2 items on our
summer checklist.
Better late then never!

Today Trav and I are celebrating our 9th anniversary.
9 years!
How are we celebrating-you ask?
Well, T is working all day.
Then golfing for his mens association.
And he'll return at 6:45.
And I will leave at 6:50 for Young Womens.

We might smooch around 10.

Now, maybe it sounds like I'm complaining...
but I'm really not.
I love our beautiful, and sometimes chaotic life.
We've built it together.
And it's full.

And sometimes I really can't believe my luck.
Life is just so good.

Little Roo started Kindergarten today.
I'm unsure how she is old enough for this.
She's my
But she was ready, that's for sure.
Adyson started a week ago
and it's been rough for Sienna to have to wait.
We had a countdown.
And lots of jealous tears.Most of which were caused because she wanted
to wear her new back to school clothes.
She does look adorable, yes?Last Year
This Year.

I'm gonna miss spending so much time with her.
She is really such a sweet tenderhearted kid
with a BIG personality!
She is always dancing, bouncing, and willing to play.
She's a smart kid and is gonna love this year!
