Oh what do you do in the summertime?

Now that life is calming down somewhat, Jake and I made a decision that this weekend we'd let Nathan actually experience a little of what life is about. On Friday I had the luxury of getting off a few hours early. I called Tammy and decided that we were going to go to Cold Stone Creamery and get ice cream with the kids and then go to the park by the library in Spanish Fork. The kids loved the ice cream, especially Carlee and Elisabeth who were also interested in my ice cream after finishing their own. Kayden is not an ice cream kid and was more content just sitting on the floor and chatting at Nathan. We went to the park and discovered it was WAY TOO HOT to play on the playground. The plans were changed and we went to Tammy's to let them jump on the trampoline with the sprinkler on underneath. They were in heaven and it was great to be able to sit and chat with Tammy. I'm so glad that Elisabeth and Kayden are such good buddies; they play together so well most of the time. Elisabeth doesn't like to be told what to do and is somewhat of a taddle-tale now, but other than that they get along great!

Jake and I took Nathan & Elisabeth to a picnic at Canyon View Park on Saturday night with a few of our friends from high school and then on Sunday Nathan made his big debut at church. He actually did really well at church and really only fussed through the first couple of minutes of Sunday school. I took him and walked out to the car to get a blanket. I had no sooner put the blanket on him when he took hold of his thumb and soothed himself to sleep. He slept all through the rest of the meetings. It was wonderful! (Unfortunately, I know what is coming in the future as he gets older!) Five months is such a sweet age!
