End of Summer Bucket List: Update

In August, I wrote down what I wanted to do for the last two weeks.

Go to our pool at least six more times. Two times a week. Did it… in fact, we went nine times. 
Hike Timp. Okay, this can be done in September if needs be. Plans are in the works for this.
Two more hikes with Eva. Did one hike and one nature walk. That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.
Three more splash pads, including the one in Sandy (one a week). We went to five splash pads!
Seven Peaks two more times. Didn’t do this. I just didn’t have motivation to go since we have a pool on our street.
Outdoor movie (Rock Canyon) on the 29th. Nope. Didn’t get to go because of the one car issue.
One more concert in the Park (Wines Park) on the 21st. A last minute family birthday gathering happened on this date instead.
Utah State Fair (this is actually in September but I don’t want to forget!) Hasn’t happened yet.
Swim in a lake (this Saturday?) Eva did this.
Tube Provo river on the 19th or 26th (want to join??) Couldn’t find a babysitter 🙁
Dinner and play in the streams up at South Fork Park (sometime next week) Kind of did this twice.
Trip to Arizona (Labor Day Weekend) Done.

We didn’t do it all, but we certainly did a lot for two weeks!

Wrapping Up August

Can you believe we are already a week into September? Slow the heck down, life! It will be Christmas before you know it.

We all went to the dentist and I, unfortunately, had to get my teeth worked on. But they had a TV (with The Office) on the ceiling so that wasn’t too terrible.


We went to the pool almost every day. img_0007-4

One day, Finn was giving me kisses which I clearly was obsessed with and so Eva started giving me endless kisses too.img_0006-4

We went to the farm twice. Once by ourselves and once with cousins. Finn loved getting out and walking around. He almost fed his fingers to the ponies.img_0005-4




August, you were good to us but too short.

Summer Shenanigans

We have had so much fun. Pretty much every single day we have gotten out to do something! Here’s a little glimpse of our daily life from the eyes of Instagram and my phone.

We play hard at home now that Finn is walking around and being a crazy kid! • Lots of car time recently when I take TJ to/from work

Seven Peaks trips • Provo Center St Splashpad • Springville Park and Splashpad

Glen Park and Pond with cousins and extended family • Trips to the library • Afternoons at the museum

Mornings at the neighborhood park • Date nights at the movies • Riverwoods Splash Pad

More 7 Peaks Fun • Countless days at the pool

Museum of Curiosity

We have genuinely loved having our Thanksgiving Point pass. We’ve used it countless times, one of the latest was at the Museum of Curiosity with some friends that were in town. They were some of our best friends back in Jersey and so it was great to see them and spend some time together again. The museum is so close, we can actually walk there which has been perfect since TJ takes the car to work about three times to work.

The museum was packed as usual, we are so excited that kids are back in school and it won’t be as busy, but we still had a great afternoon seeing all these kiddos play together!

TJ’s Dad had free tickets for all of us to go to Lagoon through his work at the end of July so all of us went up there one Friday! It was crazy hot and really busy, but we still had a good time hanging out together! The kids loved riding all the rides and Finn was pretty content all day long-like he didn’t cry at all and we stayed until 11!
