Wrapping Up Summer

I can't believe summer is actually over! It went by so fast... wasn't it just barely Christmas? The saying is totally true that time flies when you're having fun! We had a blast this summer and thought we'd share just a few of the fun things that we did that didn't earn a blog post!
A competitive game of croquet with James' family - James won, but I still want a re-match!
We went to an awesome arcade with my BFF Ashley and her daughter Cameron. This was the loot we won with all of our hard earned tickets!
Here we are at Red Butte Garden... I tried to shove James into the pond right after this pic was taken, but he was too strong! Next time, he he he!
Summer isn't complete without at least one outdoor concert! We had a blast at the Peter Cetera concert at the Sandy Amphitheatre. Glory of Love from Karate Kid was the hit of the night, especially when my brother cheered: "Ralph Macchio is my hero!"
One of our favorite summer activities is the annual Jenkins' camp out at Capitol Reef National Park. This year we went on the raddest hike - just over 6 miles long! We had to climb down 3 waterfalls and the fourth waterfall we actually had to slide down. It was super fun!!!
You know how they say, "it's not over until the fat lady sings?" Well, in my book, summer isn't over until we go to the super fun annual block party hosted by our friends and neighbors, the Oliverson's. This year's theme was a Luau (in case you couldn't tell by our costumes) and it was awesome! Hula-hooping contests, water balloon launching, a limbo contest, and even a snow cone machine - what a way to say goodbye to summer!!!

Sounds so fun! I'm glad I got to go on a few summer outings with you before moving miles and miles away!
