Busy having fun!

Wow, I can't believe it's almost been a whole month since I last did a post! I've been slacking in the blogging department, but that is because we have been having a fun summer! The girls and I spend as much time outside and playing with friends as we can - that's what summer is for, right?

Jake and I were supposed to go to the U2 concert at the beginning of June, but the concert was postponed until next year (don't worry, we still have our tickets and we will still be going! Jake LOVES U2). Since we already had our hotel booked, we decided to go to Salt Lake anyways and have a little getaway with just the two of us.

It was fun to spend some time alone - with no kids! My parent's and sister watched the girls while we were gone. I love having family close by!

We decided to go to the Salt Lake Temple while we were there. One of the reasons it's hard to make it to the temple is figuring out what to do with kids. We live 45 minutes away from the St. George temple so it's hard to get a babysitter for that long.

I love Temple Square. It is so beautiful! And since it's so beautiful, I had to get some pictures. They always have the most beautiful flowers!

We also got to go to Ogden to visit with my grandparents. My grandpa is 93 (I think . . . or is about to turn 93 . . .) and my grandma is turning 90 this year, I think. They are troopers! Each time I see them, I feel like it will be the last time I see them. I couldn't stop giving my grandma hugs before we left. And as we drove from their house, I started crying - my grandparents used to come outside and wave to us until our car drove around the corner. They are too old to do that now. They are pretty much confined to their house for the most part. I go see them as much as I can, which is really only about twice a year. We just don't make it up to Ogden very often. But it was great to see them!

Next up - a post about our family vacation to Jackson Hole, one of my favorite places in the world!

What a fun trip! I'm glad you'll still be able to go to the concert next year. Was it canceled because of Bono's back surgery? Anyway, maybe Mark and I should try to go, too. That would be awesome. We love U2.

You are so pretty Michelle. How nice to have a little getaway. I feel like that is never going to happen for us again.
