Mini Golf

Last night, Greg and I went mini golfing at Boondocks with Lacey and Tyson. It was a serious competition. Greg talked me up at dinner, so I was feeling pretty confident, but I bombed. Tyson won with a 10 pt. lead with Greg, Lacey, and I tying for second. Obviously, the three of us need to work on or mini golfing skills before our next competition. I'm comin' for ya Tys!

One Last Horrah!

Last Saturday night (or should I say Sunday morning), while we were kickin it with the Beans (Lacey and Tyson), at about 1am, we decided that we were going to go to Park City on Sunday afternoon and stay the night! Greg said he needed one last horrah before school started. We booked the Mountain Side Marriott resort and headed up Sunday after church.
Greg, Olivia, and I went to main street and shopped and then headed to the outlets. Olivia was so good and hilarious. She was working it with everyone that walked by. She would laugh and scream to get their attention.
Lacey and Tyson came up at about 5 pm and we met them at a yummy mexican restaurant. We then went swimming, played games, talked, and laughed for hours. Lacey and Tyson headed home later that night, and Greg, Ibby, and I slept over!
We had such a blast! It is so fun hanging out with Lacey and Tys. We have so many laughs! I am so excited for them to get married! They are the best!

When we were in Gap, I was trying on a sweater, when Greg walked up and told me to turn around. This is what we saw! Our sweet Ibby was either trying to escape, or checking out the world! Hilarious!
Here we are eating dinner with the Beans!

This last weekend, the WHOLE Holmstead crew went to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Canyon. We had so much fun! We jet skied, tubed, wakeboarded, ATE, and just hung out with the fam!
The first night, the power went off at around 5:30 and was out the rest of the night. It was a little inconvenient, but we still managed to have fun. We hung by the pool til it was too dark, then just hung out with the cousins, talked, and played cards.
The next day was our day at the lake. We had so much fun. Even Olivia got to go on the jet ski. Her face was quite concerned the whole time. We had to keep stoping to make sure she was still breathing (she always holds her breath when the wind is in her face)!
Myken, Greg, and I did the tube, and I still have bruises to prove it. It was a rough ride, and my swim bottoms will agree. I almost lost them countless times. That would've been just a little embarasing. When Myken drove, she was determined to get Greg off, and the nerd wouldn't let go of the dang tube! It was so funny. I was a little sore the next day, but it was still a blast.
Later, Greg and I decided to take the jet ski out and wakeboard. Unfortunately, the rope got sucked into the engine. Count on us to be the idiots to do that. We had to swim the jet ski to shore and cut the rope out. Don't worry, the jet ski still worked (thank heavens)!
We had so much fun! I always love our yearly getaways with the Holmsteads. We make so many fun memories.
I didn't do so well with getting pics, but here's what I got:

Kickin it in the hot tub with the kids! Olivia loved it! (Don't worry, it wasn't very hot)
Matt and Easton napping. Matt might be Olivia's favorite uncle now because when I would put her down for a nap, Matt would sneak in and rescue her if she was crying. He would either snuggle her until she fell asleep, or take her outside to play!
Greg's disgusting mustache that he grew for the trip. Thank heaven's it's gone now!

Almost 7 Months And Crawling!!!

We cannot believe that our little Ibby is crawling! She has been so close for so long and she finally figured it out about three days ago and now our house is no longer safe!

This is also a new skill that Ibby has acquired over the last week. Now that she can pull herself up in her crib, she won't nap! It is a constant battle and one that is rarely won by the parents.
