Summer summer summer

Whew! So much to catch up on! Honestly our summer has been so incredibly boring and then August hit and BAM we have had so much going on. From one of our best friend family coming to visit, 2 trips up north (well technically 3), wedding (thats the 3rd trip), Lucy starts school in 2 days, and cake stuff.

I have been putting off blogging because I havent been good at all at taking pictures and honestly I really havent been much in the blogging mood. When I am not in the blogging mood my posts tend to be extremely boring and not fun to read at all so I have been waiting for that moment when I am feeling ultra blog happy, and that isnt happening so I may as well bite the bullet now. I am thinking I will have to catch up in multiple posts too.

A few weeks ago one of my bestest buddies came to visit! We LOVE the Butterfields and we were so excited for them to come visit us. We stayed up WAY too late, went shopping, ate good food, went to Pirate Island, went to the splash pad down town, talked and talked and did I mention stayed up way too late?! It was a much needed stay-cation on our end. I was actually surprised that Lucy got along so well with the girls because she only has boy friends here and I was nervous that she wouldnt be used to playing with girls but low and behold our little girly girl got along perfectly well the whole time. Here are a few pictures to commemorate (that i stole from Meggans Facebook)

Lets see. So our trips to Provo and Salt Lake were fun and we really love going back to Utah county. We NEVER thought we would say that, but we sure do miss it a lot. It just feels like home there. Plus it is so green! Again, thought i would never say how pretty and green it is, but when you are surrounded by brown/red its kind of a breath of fresh air. First we went for a sort of family reunion for the Nixon side of the family. That was totally impromptu and last minute but we were glad we went. We saw the Trythalls and saw our family that we hadnt seen in 5 months (which is a long time when you go from seeing them weekly or more) and it was AWESOME weather. No pics for this one....

Next trip to P-town was for Ty's little sisters graduation from BYU and our new sis-in-laws endowment in the temple. Again, fun to see family and hang out. Lucy got sick the night of the endowment and luckily decided not to puke until we were getting her out of the car at home (aka Nelson's home) and lucky for tyler was while he was holding her and a big gust of wind came right at the perfect (or imperfect) moment. We think it was from all the junk and crazy schedule cause she felt better after that. Although for some reason when someone in my house or people I have been by get sick I get EXTREMELY paranoid and anxious. So she was doing better but I was a ball of nerves. 

Lucy helping Grandma with wedding prep. Never too young to help with weddings!
