It's coming to an end...

My summer is at it's end. I have already headed back into my classroom. This post is just about some of the fun things I've/we've done this summer.

First, I got to throw my beautiful sister, Emma, her baby shower. I'm so excited to meet baby girl! It was rain shower themed with gray, pink, gold, and white as the colors. We had a crepe bar which was easy, but so yummy!

I wish I would've taken a picture of the food before everyone ate… oh well.

We played some fun games… the price is right, baby names a-z, my water broke, and a balloon baby, tie your shoe game (I have no idea what to call it ;)).




I hope that she had a great time! I know I did. 

Then was my birthday and the 4th, but I already posted about that.

After, my mum's birthday came up and I got to make her cake for her. It's something I'm interested in getting better at. This is the first time I've really tried on a cake, so it's not perfect, but I'm very happy with how it turned out.

One hot summer day, I took Lila and Brighton to Seven Peaks in Salt Lake to go swimming with some of her cousins and aunts.

So much fun!

Lila took this picture of Brighton… yes, that's her finger.

Pioneer day came and I ran the temple to temple 5k with some of my sisters, my mum, Lila, Brighton, and their cousins. It was a beautiful run, but kind of a pain, too. Because I was pushing Brighton in the stroller I thought I would start back with the walkers. Bad idea! They would create walls and would not let me pass. :( Oh well. It wasn't about a good running time anyway.

Since then, I've headed back to work where our theme for the school year is based on the book Flight Plan. Good book. My team decided to make airplanes to hang in our classroom and take a beginning of the year picture in. 

Here's mine: (Isn't the hat my coworker made for us so cute?! White scarf underneath… perfect.)

It's been a very eventful and fun summer. No complaints here! Happy Summer to all!
