summer recap

in between the chaos that was this summer, i did the following things on my list:

*not cut my hair (okay, i trimmed it a couple times and once was a pretty major trim...but i didn't substantially cut it, which is a success for me)

*rode the heber creeper

*went fishing (THREE times!)

*attended my third wasatch county demolition derby. and don't be jealous, but jayson got to be a judge. ok, be really jealous.

*made a new summer playlist. we danced to it a lot.

*made lemonade out of lemons (literally), thanks to my very talented sister kendra and her appearance on the aol holiday blog.

*rode a chair lift (this was beautiful)

*canned peaches

*outdoor movie (thank you ward activity, even if it did rain)

i did not:

*walk a 5k, but i played some tennis.

*watch hot air balloons, although i did see some fly.
*sit on my new flagstone patio (no $$)
*play kickball
*paint my toenails every week. i can't see my toenails, so i had to rely on others. katy did it for me twice. thank you katy.
*outdoor concert
*go to cove fort (jayson really wants to do this)
*drive alpine loop in the BMW. maybe this week? it's perfect right now.
*go to moab. really, we still haven't been? i can't believe i haven't taken jayson here yet.
*golfing with jayson. he's catered more on golf courses this summer than actually played.
*ride bike from bridal vail to utah lake (next summer).
*batting cages. there is still time.
*go on lots of walks. this one is hopeless. my walks are 4 blocks at best.
*make ice cream in a hand crank bucket. i did get a hand crank bucket, but it's broken and i'm not sure i can fix it. but peach ice cream sounds delightful, and peaches are amazing right now. this week?!?!?!?!

the highlight of the summer was having my parents come home, and having all my family in town. it was crazy, but so much fun. this summer was chaotic, but that's how we roll. yeehaw!

Honestly, I'm proud of you for doing all you did while pregnant! I've heard said that if you do everything on your list, it wasn't challenging enough. Anyway, I love the pics. Especially that one of Mae and you on the chair-lift thing. Adorable.

Wow, you're the best. I love the picture of Mae with ready to play tennis.

I miss you.

I would paint your toenails.

And make you a peach milkshake.
