Am I the Last to Know???

H&M is coming to Fashion Place Mall this Fall. I think I am the last girl in the state to know this information, but I am so freaking happy about this news.

The other night we went to the picturesque canal {sense the sarcasm??} to feed the duckies. It was fun even though the canal was filthy.

Alison Anderson came into town last week and I am still on cloud nine.
Thank you, Alison for the ridiculous "dress like a cow and get a free meal" lunch at Chick-Fil-A {that we refused to take part in}, and the perfect retreat at the park afterward.
Man, people are crazy for free crap that is so not worth it.
I love this girl!

Play-group and Sprinklers

It must be said again how much I love play-group. Sprinklers, sunglasses, friends, and popsicles... can you ask for anything more?

Karley and Kimmy liked Sarah's sunglasses too.
{Yes... Sarah and Karley have the same hat. Karley gave Sarah hers for her birthday.}

New Mexican Fourth

To say we had a lot of fun in New Mexico is an understatement. It was awesomely epic. I have seen Doug and Jen's and Sean's pictures and I think it is fair to say these don't do the long weekend justice. It was perfect.

First things first-- get in the pool!

Jake found that he had a knack for the water-guns.

It took Sean and I a few tries to get this one.

We all had fun with the underwater camera case.

Everything's better with an Otter-Pop.

Love this boy.

Baby Van.

In the "boat".

Under the "boat".

I love Jack's expression here... it took him a while to warm up to the water, but when he did, he was full-throttle.

An intense game of water-basket-ball.
(At this point in the weekend, Blaine was under strict "beach-jail" arrest.)

The boys.

More water-basket-ball.

Oh, I love Amy.

If you're lucky enough to know the Carter boys, you know their affinity for making up ridiculous games and/and or competitions. This game/competition was called, "How Much Can You Take?" It started small, then escalated from there.

On the way to Durango for the afternoon.

We wore poor Jake out in the pool.

Oh, Blaine.

On our way to see the trains.


The train museum.

This model train set-up made Disney World's look pint-size. Jake was in heaven.

Blurry picture, but Miles (mini-Brent) is too cute.

Here comes the train!

Jen helping the boys sort and count their rocks.

Swinging at the park.

I promise she loves it. She cries whenever we take her out.


This is from the night of the third. Farmington actually does fireworks on the third every year (genius!) We loved watching fireworks and playing with the glow-sticks we brought.
