Grandma and Grandpa came to town

Last week Jensen's parents came down to visit for a few days. Their visit wasn't nearly long enough but it was so nice to see them! I didn't take many pictures, besides a quick Sunday trip up American Fork canyon. We only live about 10 minutes from the canyon, and it's one of my favorite places to go as a family.
This boy melts my heart.
Quinny took no time warming up to Grandma and Grandpa this visit. The morning after they left Dunken and Quinn went downstairs looking for them, and didn't believe me when I told them they went back home.
You can never have too much sunscreen, right? ;)

Baby Jasper

I've heard from some people the transition to three babies went a lot smoother than they thought it would, and from others that it was difficult.  Jasper wants to be held constantly and his stomach still seems to bother him quite a bit, so the transition has been rough some days for me.  I'll admit, it's been a little hectic around here lately.  I still don't feel like I have my stuff together yet.  Jasper is almost two months old and I'm trying my hardest to soak in all his sweet babyness.  With two toddlers they seem to gang up on me and create as much mess and chaos as possibl. Even though my house is messier than I would prefer, and I don't cook dinner nearly as often as I used to, and Dunken and Quinn watch far too much tv, I wouldn't have it any other way.  We love this sweet baby boy. There's something so special about a new baby's presence in a home.

Follow the Flag

Last night Jensen and I went on a little hike to see the world's largest free hanging US flag! The flag is over a quarter acre in size and weighs over 400 pounds! Here's Jensen, Dunken, and Quinn in front of a star the same size as the ones on the flag, and there are 50 of them! The picture's really don't do it justice. In person it's amazing! And the flag was hanging up so high in the canyon we weren't able to even get that close.
The flag is hanging in Battle Creek Canyon (in Pleasant Grove UT) just a few miles from our house.  We can see it almost as soon as we get off the freeway headed home. There has been different events up by the canyon every day since the Fourth of July when they hung it. Last night they had a children's choir singing down below the flag.
During our hike it started to storm and rain a little and it was so neat to see the flag blowing in the wind.
We hiked up to a little lookout point overlooking the valley to see the flag from the back side.

White Shanty Flag

I saw a few posts on Instagram of a white building and a big flag, so once I found out where it was I drug my family there for some pictures. The flag was just a few miles from Suzanne's house so we headed down to the White Shanty. It was way too hot, but they were pretty good sports about it and I got some cute pictures even thought it was so hot and sunny.
