Summer started off with a couple of birthdays and birthday parties~
|Avery's 9th Backyard Cookout!|
|Aubrey's Backyard Bash!|
Following that Avery and I spent an exciting and exhausting week at cub camp. They shot bb guns, learned some archery and shot off some bottle rockets. Avery absolutely LOVES being in cub scouts.At the end of June we headed to Utah for a Lytle reunion. All five boys met at Dad Lytle's house in American Fork for a fun filled week. The last time we were ALL together was 8 years ago! During that week we had a baptism and ordination, a baby was born and we attempted a family pic. It was so fun to watch the cousins getting to know each other. Bonds were formed and memories were made. We will not let another 9 years go by before doing it again!

After Utah we came home to get Jake packed and ready to head for a camping/fishing trip in Mammoth. At the same time I started gathering what the girls and I would need for our week at girls camp! Both were very successful and fun.

To end the summer we did one last quick weekend down at Embassy Suites, Mandalay bay in Ventura, CA. We went with my family to celebrate both my parents birthdays! What a great but super busy summer it was!

Well, that brings us to present day! We have started school and seminary.....
Avery is in 4th, Jane in 8th, Aubrey 10th and Jake is a SENIOR!! Yikes, where has time gone.
Jake has also started his first "real" job working at Sport Chalet right here in town. Most of you know of his obsession with shoes and one day starting his own company. This job is right up his ally. He is working the shoe department and loving every minute of it. We are proud.
