Okay I can't believe that it has been a month since my last post. Where has July gone, it has just flown by. This post has tons of photos, because I'm just going to blog about the whole month. So lets begin with the fourth. My little sister was having her reception in Lakeview over the 4Th of July weekend. I wasn't planning on going, but at the last minute (night before) I decided to carpool down with Megs and her hubby Tim and the girls. It was lots of fun to see everyone, and the girls were SO excited to see Nanny and Grandad. The reception was lovely and I ate my fare share of key lime pie and raspberry cheesecake. One of the highlights for me was getting to see my best friends family. I love the Knowles family, they are like my second family. It was great getting to catch up with them! Oh and I also got to go to my favorite restaurant the Aspen Ridge, YUM!

When we got back from Lakeview, we came home to not only Damon but my other sister Emma and her family. We knew they were coming but because I went to Lakeview last minute, Damon got to entertain them for a few days. There main reason for coming to visit was Steve (brother-in-law) his parents were just coming home from serving for the past three years as Mission Presidents. They had to come with Utah to pick up a car, so Emma and Steve made a vacay to see them and us all at the same time. They also blessed baby Oscar too. Who is adorable and little chub. I think he weighs the same as Sophie. I don't know why but I didn't take any photos of him, and only a couple of Betty. I was SO excited to see Miss. Betty. She is so much fun, and talks your ear off.

Since all the Kings girls were in Utah, my parents of course were here too. We actually got some family photos done by Megan and Tim's wedding photographer. We haven't seen them yet, I'll be sure to post some when we get them back though.

Now we are to the end of the month and it has finally calmed down around here. We are keeping busy trying to stay cool. Olivia would have about 5 popsicle's a day if I let her. Sophie is STILL not walking. I think she just figures she has it pretty good with us carrying her. That's okay though she is such a sweet little snuggle bug that I'll take it. Sophie's new thing is holding up one finger. If you ask her if she is number one and she will stick it straight up. She has now even started waving it around as if to boss us around. Funny thing. Olivia is getting excited for preschool to start. We have been going over raising our hand and being patient. Tough things to teach, especially the being patient, but she is learning. I am especially excited for her to start preschool, three days a week two hours each time. I'm sure though on her first day I will cry though.

Well that about sums up the month for us. I promise it won't be another month before I post again.
