Second Week of our Trip

We got to go to Lake Powell for a week, but then after, Tyson flew back to Oregon, and I stayed with my sister in law for a week and the kids had swim lessons with their cousins.
Here it is instagramed, cause I took a break from my DSLR...

From left to right:
1. Relaxing on the way to Boise... after I dropped Tyson's iPhone and smashed the face.
2. Pit Stop
4. At the fabric store to get fabric for pillows, pjs, and skirts. Everyone wanted to learn how to sew.
5. Our cousin Jacob's birthday party at a gym. Gotta love the foam pit!
6.Quincy stretching to get ready for some gymnastics at the party.
7. More pit action.
8. Uneven bars... Nadia.
9. Sweet Tooth Fairy for the first time! The VaNIElla Cupcake.

1. Swim lessons with Teacher Linda. If you live in Northern Utah and would like THE BEST and MOST AFFORDABLE swim teacher, let me know. She taught Merrick, Berkleigh, and Quincy to swim in 1 week! No joke. Quincy can swim. (I don't know if that is more impressive or the fact that Merrick can swim.) hehe
2. Berkleigh learning to pin. How cute is that?
3. Merrick said, "Hey mom! Look, I made a CTR shield with my bagel!"
4. The cutest fresh fruit stand with the best Mango Kiwi salsa in the world.
5. Desert sunsets, and it was 8:30 and still 90 degrees. ( I wrote that as I am wearing a hoodie at my house.)
6. Buying my own gas. Uncool how long I sat in my car waiting for someone to come pump it for me. hehe
7. Idaho sunset on my trip to Idaho sans hubby.
8. The greatest kids, and their long naps while driving to Idaho.
9. Trying to keep myself awake driving by taking random pictures with my sunglasses.

1. Lauren and Berkleigh lounging around at the splash pad. They held hands the entire time we were there, which was two days.
2.Cutie Patootie.
3. Merrick and water don't mix well.
4. Berkleigh kept yelling, "Babies for sale! Babies for sale!" while driving this little cozy coupe around.
5.My handsome boy. This is after he fell off a swing...
6. KNEADER Turkey, Bacon, Avocado sandwich. yum.
7. Multnomah Falls... ALMOST home from a long trip with me and three kids.
8. Happy Reunion.
9. Grizzly Adams (aka: Tyson) took advantage on me not being around to keep his beard growing since Lake Powell. 
PS. He no longer has it.

It was such a great trip and there is so much more to share, but I just did Club Dance or Zumba for the first time and I am TIRED! 
so good night.

I want the swim teacher info! My older boys are learning their way around a pool, but I worry about Beni. We swim often enough that he's almost TOO comfortable in the pool (because he has no skills). I'm constantly praying that he won't get in the backyard by himself and drown. How far north is Linda?
