June & July Festivities!


















The last week of June,  Jason and I went on a 5 day trip to Cancun! It was relaxing, tropical, and so much fun. It was a Toyota Trip, which means all expenses are paid for!  All we had to worry about was getting to the airport on time. And thanks to my mother- in -law we are able to leave the kids with no worries. Many people asked us if this is the first time we have left our kids, but because of these trips Toyota sends us on we have had the opportunity to take a few trips by ourselves in the past few years. We feel very fortunate! The trips are always amazing. Cancun was no exception, we snorkeled, saw amazing exotic animals, went to a theme park , dancing, and lots of great food. We're still trying to work off all the food we ate while we were there.  
We also had a very busy July. The month started out with a visit from Grandma and Grandpa Wood. They came here from Utah and the boys were so happy to see them. 
The 4th of July started out with a ward breakfast and water fight in the church parking lot. The kids had their squirt guns. There were water balloons and they even got out the firehose. So fun! When Jason came home from work we swam and barbequed, Jason's family came over and we shot off fire works in our front yard with our neighbors. 
July 16th, Cade had his Kindergarten graduation. It was so neat, they sang danced a little, there was a slide show and of course the handing out the diplomas. I did get a little teary eyed watching him and just thinking of how time is going to pass so quickly. 
We also had visits from my parents who stayed for almost a week and my aunt and two cousins stayed with us for a few days also. It has been a busy month, but lots of fun!

Mexico is sweet! I love your job Jason! You think that the next Toyota trip will be to Lansing Michigan? You could tour the old Oldsmobile plant and fight with the bums to keep your hand warm by the fire.
