We started out our week with a float preview for the Days of 47 Parade. There were lots of fun floats that we both loved, but her favorite by far was the one with "hot air" balloons. 

We got this great new toy. They are really similar to Lincoln Logs, but have some fun and unique ways to build with. They were created by a guy in who lives here in Utah, and we have spent many evenings just playing with them. 

This likely doesn't seem like much to anyone else, but to me it was a big deal. Our pantry needed a major overhaul. Seriously. I should've taken before and after pictures, but didn't. It has been SO nice to have it organized, be able o see everything, and even have extra room. 

S and I are getting really good use out of our Museum passes this summer. We spent some quality time at the Dinosaur museum, and were both hot, sweaty, and tired by the time we left. I voted for Slurpees on the way home. S was totally happy to second that vote. 

S wanted to spend some time in the pool on Saturday. Pool time is always more fun with friends so we had our next door neighbors come to play for a bit. Boy, am I glad we did. It satisfied her, and they ended up having a great time on the teeter totter together. All the giggles that were produced from that were quite heavenly :)

Our weekly post wouldn't be complete without our weekly family picture. It took several tried to get a good one...but at least we're all looking at the camera and smiling!
