Swimming, The Zoo, a Marathon, and Fireworks!

The remainder of our July was just as fun/busy as the first of July! We spent it this way...

Swimming with floaties at the Country Club with Grandpa Mark...

this picture is actually a BIG deal! Haylee actually dared to stand in the water all by herself!

We also payed a visit to the Zoo with the Castleton cousins. Did you know if you make an $8 donation you can take a picture with two Eagles after the bird show??

We also spent some time waking up way early so we could catch daddy at the finish line of the Deseret News Marathon!! It was on the 25th of July, so since Brett had the day off he figured "why not run 26.2?" Yah, he's sort of nuts...

waiting patiently for Dad

He's coming!! (that's him in the black)!

"wait Dad! we want to finish with you!"

the official Zoosh picture, which I LOVE and think is PRICELESS and am going to BLOW UP and frame ASAP!

did you know that after you run you have to stretch?

and did you also know that after you finish a race with your daddy that you have to go to the Cliff Bar booth and ask for a free sample because you ran so good?

After the race, we headed home for a much needed family nap! That was followed by more swimming (sorry, no pics) and ended with a yummy BBQ at my brother's house! And who could forget the fireworks??

Little Lady Ballet Summer Dance Camp

My darling friend Natalie owns her very own ballet studio. Every Summer she holds a dance camp and it's definitely the highlight to Haylee's summer! She takes home all sorts of crafts, wands, tutus, and any other girly thing you can think of!
This year they ended the session with a garden performance at Natalie's mom's house! Nat's mom, Connie, also happens to be my ballet teacher from when I was just a little girl! Natalie has the same cute charm that her mom had :)
