Still reporting the Utah trip...last post.
One of the days we were there, Brian's Aunt Caroline Sasine set up a swim party/BBQ at her son's house in South Jordan. He has this beautiful huge home with an indoor swimming pool, so the whole family took a fun leisurely dip before we ate. Well, actually they were throwing people in, swinging from the rope, sliding down the water slide and shooting each other with water guns. That's what you get when you have 5 boys in a family, and you get them back together after not having seen each other for a long time.
Did I mention Spencer LOOOOOOOVES to swim. He loves the jacuzzi, the pool, anything. He could stay in for hours. It's a good thing Brian was willing to go in with him. I'm not big on swimming pools for some reason. Maybe it's the fact that my skin is so paper thin (it seems like) and they always feel icy cold to me. I can do a jacuzzi any time though. Woo hoo!
How cute is this little girl? This is Taylor Nicole Martin (Brian's sister's first little girl after having three boys)
The house has a running brook behind it that have ducks who wander into your backyard. We had a great time throwing bread to them. Spencer especially loved it and was so enthralled.
This is the pathway behind the house. You can "kind of" see the house on the right.
Yup, this is Spencer watching all the ducks from afar. And there you see me in the background watching too. I just finished jumping on the trampoline with all the kids. I guess I should show my "fun" side a little more often. Cuz when the kids came to jump with me, they were, at first, dumbfounded that a "frumpy old mom" (at least that's what I would have thought of me when I was that little) would be jumping on the tramp having a good time. I think they thought I had lost my mind. haha.
And to end our Utah post, here is a little video. My battery ran out after a few seconds, but you get the jist. Nicole and I were laughing so hard. I just don't know if this is normal...
Her husband, Sheldon, and Brian got ADDICTED to Wii Sports. I'm giggling just remembering them jumping all over the place and getting winded after only one game. hahaha.
And I'll leave you with that...memory of two grown men acting like four year olds. :)
