We went down to Provo to see Dallas’s mom. She invited us over for ice cream and a concert in the park. We used to love going to the park concerts when we lived down there, so it was fun to go to another one.
Summer recreation classes continued for Spencer and Brooke meaning Caroline and Madison were left to play at the park. One day they had the great idea to bring scooters to the park. Unfortunately we didn’t have the great idea to bring the scooters back home. By the time we realized our oversight Caroline’s scooter was nowhere to be found. We were thankfully able to recover Madison’s scooter. Little did Caroline know this would be the last time she rode her trusty scooter:Caroline had a birthday and turned 9!
Caroline saw how much fun Brooke had decorating the cake she had on her birthday that she decided to follow suit and try her hand at cake decorating:Caroline wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese for her birthday. What the birthday girl wants, she gets!
Family selfie! So happy Dallas’s eye made it into the shot:
