Although it felt like Summer was all about baseball this year - we did manage to squeeze in a few other activities and some quick trips too. We went to California for the 4th of July and we went to Utah the last week of July. Taylor also got to spend some time in Idaho with our friends the Hamiltons. The boys both got to do the Williamsfield baseball and basketball camps and Haleigh enjoyed her 3rd year of Musical Theater Workshop. Locally we were lucky to be able to hit the lake a few times, and spend a lot of time swimming in our own and may others pools! It was a full fun summer for the Plewe's.

Camden at basketball camp with a few of his longtime team members!
Funny how freezing weather over the 4th of July still found the kids at the beach swimming in the ocean! Sadie loves to dig up the sand crabs wherever we go!
Still freezing - Haleigh couldn't get enough boogy boarding in. Her and Lauren loved being out there in the waves. I just loved to watch them while reading my book wrapped in a towel trying to keep my teeth from chattering. It was really that cold!
I just loved the expressions on Taylor and Camden's faces in this picture. They think they are so funny. And they are most of the time!
Taylor always enjoys his visits with the Hamiltons in Idaho. I think his 4 day trip turned into a week. I guess after 5 boys you really don't notice a 6th right Kristi :-) I love that he is able to stay close with his good friend Tanner. How I wish we could see them more!
On Sunday over the 4th we tried to walk around the grounds of the Newport Beach Temple. It was closed! That was weird so we just took some pictures instead. Not quite as exciting for the kids - I'll admit, but it was still nice to see it. We haven't been back since the dedication.
Our friend Tyson moved to San Juan and his new house has a great pool. The kids all had fun swimming together. Again - even when it was freezing. At least the jacuzzi was heated!
Before the Lymans moved to China we got to spend a day at the Lake with them. The kids always have a great time tubing, wake boarding and skiing. We were excited to be able to spend some time with them before they headed off on another one of their international adventures. Sadie and Maddy ended up being perfect tubing partners! Slow and steady :-)
