Summer is certainly flying by for us! We have just been trying to play as much as we can in between all the rainy days, which aren't so bad really. We had a great time with a lot of friends going to the Bees game...really I was only there for the fireworks!

We also had a wonderful time just soaking up the the sun, boating and relaxing down at Lake Powell. I think I ate double what I usually do during the week, but I guess all the sunshine and playing really takes it out of you!

Of course summer would not be complete with out good old Strawberry Days! It really is one of my favorite parts about summer. We can see and hear the carnival from our house, and we even could hear the rodeo too, well just on the nights that we weren't there. We went Thursday and Friday night and even though those benches are in serious need of replacement we had a great time complete with strawberries and cream!

This is a picture of the Whatcott crew on Thursday night, at least this year we weren't in the row that was being climbed over by everyone!

I had a birthday shout hooray! Yep, it's true, I am getting older...the big 23! Todd and I had such a fun time just spending the day together, we ate at Happy Sumo for lunch, my favorite, and then spent the day shopping and Todd bought me the best sunglasses ever! I am so excited for them to get here! Then we went to dinner at Macaroni Grill and went to see Transformers which I was so excited about and really want to go see again...yes it was that good! Thanks for the wonderful day Todd!

So all in all our summer has been going fast but we are trying to make the most of it before Todd has to get back to school in the fall. We are just glad that we still have another month or so to enjoy. In other news, its kinda a big deal and its a frustrating process but Todd and I are soon to be homeowners! Yeah, we decided to give in and buy since the time is right and we are just in the final stages for closing and then we have a lot of work to do but are so excited to get in and make it our own. So yeah, pretty exciting stuff, and we will keep you posted on the might be a while, but in the end it will be more than worth it!
