California Road Trip

14 of my closest family members and I traveled to California last week for our Clegg Family Reunion.  It was a grand-old time if I do say so myself.  Our reunion was held at Santee Lakes like last year.  This year attendance was pretty low, I'd say less than about 70 people, however we had a great time visiting with all who were able to come. Our time in California is never long enough but since I was only VISITING Utah this summer, it felt especially short.  Anyway, here are the photos I took of our trip.  

Stateside Summer 2014

This summer has been a lot of fun.  I'm so grateful that we were able to come to Utah and be with our family for a little while.  I'd like to tell you all how glad I am to have spent time with you this summer.  Thank you for the play-dates, lunches, and conversations.  I'm sorry our time was limited and we weren't able to see everyone very much; I know your time is precious too.  We'll be heading back to Singapore this week and I feel ready to get back into the swing of normal life and routines.  I think the boys are excited and ready for school to start too.  We anticipate being gone one more year, with a move back to Utah next June... that's the plan for now!  

Here are some of the things we've been up to this July.  

We were able to go to the Museum of Natural Curiosity a few times. The kids had a great time exploring!  

Having a treat at SLURP! 

7 Peaks is still one of my favorite places ever!  

In N Out was definitely on the To-Eat list this summer.  

7/11 Free Slurpee Day!  

The boys have become obsessed with these little Lego creatures called Mixels.
They had a fun time sharing their obsession with Emry and Kody too.  This is a Lego toy which is a creature that you can "mix" with other creatures and create new ones.  There are games and instructions online too. 

Cousin sleep-overs are the best! Yeah right they all slept there all night!

Independence Day!

 Riverton City had a parade on Friday, July 3rd.  Jess, Mom and I took the kids over to watch.  It was pretty fun for the kids.  I think they thought they'd died and gone to heaven with all of the candy from the floats.  We saw a few familiar faces up there too; that was fun!

 On the morning of the 4th we attended a ward breakfast with my mom.  Traditional American breakfast was a great way to start the day!  Evan wasn't feeling really well all week and after breakfast he was sick again, poor kid!

 Later that evening Evan finally started feeling well enough again to go out and we headed over to Lehi to see the fireworks from Thanksgiving Point.  We had planned on meeting up with some friends but we didn't want to share our germs.

Jax was the cutest about the fireworks.  He though they were so cool and kept saying "ooh" and "wow".  Ryan said it was his best 4th of July ever.  It was a great time of year to be back in America, that's for sure!

Old Farm Splash Park

Jess and I met up with our cousins Cheryl and Stacy and all of our kiddos at the Splash Park here in Riverton.  The kiddos had a great time running around at the park and us moms had a fun time catching up.  We think we have the CUTEST kids around!
