Had a fun Canada Day, but I was so glad we also had the Saturday to just be lazy and do nothing, and by nothing I mean wear your brothers t-shirt you slept in and your brother's shoes and jump on the tramp :)
Still so cute!
Ben played some catch with the boys (and even though I had hundreds of pictures from just the day before, I got out my camera, again, cuz it was just to darn iconic "boys play catch with dad")
I think I've pointed this out before, but for reals Levi CAN NOT do anything remotely "sporty" with out sticking his tongue out!
(And these is only a few of the photos from that day that prove that fact)

I let my camera rest a bit until we headed out to Broxburn U-pick Farm. It is one of my favourite places we go each summer. Giant slides are always fun:)
|I love how she keeps up with her brothers!|
|Poor littles, did NOT like that we didn't let them crawl around eating the dirt.|
|There's that tongue again|
|Thanks for this one Sarah:)|
Ben was down in Utah for work the rest of the week, so I decided to spend some time out at my mom and dad's. I'm so grateful they're so willing to let me and my crazy brood descend upon them.
My dad and I went to the Temple Thursday afternoon to do some baptisms. When I was asked to give the opening prayer I began rather automatically Dear Heavenly Father, thank you... but then I paused and thought "What am I actually thankful for in this very moment" and then I continued my voice breaking with a flood of emotion "I'm grateful my mom is watching my kids so I can be here"
It's a interesting experience to be able to return to the home of your childhood with your own kids.
Things that felt so big through a child's eyes seem so small. Like my dad's pancakes. I remember thinking the griddle and the spatuala and the pancakes themselves were all soooooo huge.
