Hair cut, Swimming and cub camp

This is on our way home. The kids were exhausted!

My matching girls, so cute!

Bella got her hair cut short for the first time ever. She has been begging to have her hair like her friend Clara, for a long time. I finally gave in and she got a huge smile on her face when the first big cut happened. It made me happy.

Cute Talia. I have started her on solid foods now. She really likes bananas and sweet potatoes. She doesn't like blackberries, turkey, applesauce, or straight rice cereal. But, when she likes something she sure is a good eater! She is also doing really well at sitting up alone. She can do it for at least 10 seconds straight, as long as she doesn't get too excited!

Today she was in her swing and Robert started jumping for her. She laughed so hard that all the kids joined in to make her laugh. It was so cute!

This week I enrolled Austin and Isabelle in double swimming lessons while Robert was in cub camp. Rob thought I was crazy, but the kids ended up loving it!
It did wear the kids out. Austin fell asleep on the floor in the kitchen, Belly just likes to be in pictures.Robert had a lot of fun at cub camp this week. He especially liked archery.
Here is one of his arrows...
He got in a water fight.
He was an alligator in their "Indiana Jones" skit.
The other kids got up and danced before the cub scouts came out.

Larson Family Reunion

It's really late, I just wanted to get something out. I am hoping to fix this later....

So, we have headed to Utah a lot this year. I think my kids think it is a regular thing for all people to stay in hotels all the time and eat out. Rob and I kept looking at each other this trip and saying how spoiled our kids are.

Anyways, it was WONDERFUL to come to Utah and see all of my long lost Larson family. True, I have seen these people a number of times throughout my life, but, since my parents are divorced, the numbers are small. I loved to get to know my aunts, uncles, and cousins better. The more I get to know them, the more I love them. The minute I got to the reunion, my aunt Joni ran up to me and gave me a huge hug. How more welcome could I feel? These people are so sweet, so fun, so happy and energetic. They were so thoughtful of the kids and each other.

Anyways, here are some pics from the trip.

The family went from this...To this...
