June 2013 - Swimming Lessons/Nana and Papa Visit

June was a busy month.  Not only did we go camping as a family but Eden had 2 summer camps at the Lil Gym, she started swim lessons with her friend Violet AND Nana and Papa stopped by for a visit on their way to the MTC.

After having grown up with a pool Colby found it necessary to sit down and have a little chat with Eden.  This has been on his mind a lot and thought that this was the time to have that "chat"  about..... 
not peeing in the pool.

And I will say that so far we have not had one incident!

Eden has been doing great with her swim lessons.  There is a YW in our ward that teaches swim lessons and she was kind enough to do private lessons at the clubhouse pool just for Eden and her bestie Violet. 

 She has really learned so much and is doing really well.  

We also have a little inflatable pool that we often set up in the backyard that Eden loves to play in.  But what she really loves about it is getting Papa wet!

My parents drove out and stayed in Denver for a few nights before heading to Provo to go to the MTC for 2 weeks.  Of course they loved all the time with the kiddos and Eden adores them.  She was laughing and smiling the entire time they were here.

While they were here we took them out to Red Rocks Amphitheater.  It is truly remarkable and I cannot wait to attend a concert there!  It would be so amazing.

The really cool thing about the theater is everyday it is just packed with people exercising.  Seriously, if they didn't use it for concerts it would still be in full use with all the people and the groups that come out to train or just get in a workout.    

Since Nana was going to be in the MTC for her birthday we had a little birthday celebration.  

Probably the most memorable thing that happened while they were here was this....

While running an errand one night a young teenage girl ran a red light and I slammed right into her while getting onto the highway on-ramp.  Stay tuned for more pics of the car and the long drawn out process.
