The 4th and More

So we have been in Utah now for about two and a half weeks, and we are really having a great time. I'm not just saying this because it's a hundred and fifteen degrees in AZ.
Dan is still studying for the boards and is going to take them next Wednesday the 22nd. In between studying we have been having a lot of fun. I couldn't have asked for a better summer so far.

For the fourth of July we went to the annual Keith Family Party at the Orem City Park. As always, there was a lot of great food, football, and plenty to do for the kids. Danielle wanted to paint her nails red for the fourth, so of course, Rayce wanted his painted as well.

So, they both sported pretty red painted nails for the day.

The kids loved the water fight at the party. Rayce couldn't believe he was being allowed to throw water ballons at his sister. We were also able to see family and friends we haven't seen since our move, most hadn't met Avie yet.
Aside from the party on the fourth we have been able to spend some time up in Sugarhouse, with some of our close friends. We went to our old ward's campout (although with our last experience camping we just ended up staying for dinner and not actually camping.)

The kids at the Children's Museum at the Gateway.

Avie meets Cousin Brinley

This isn't an especially great picture, but I had to showcase Dan wearing his "U" hat to any event with my BYU loving family. (Go Utes!)

My dear friend Michelle

Avie is almost five months old! I get the feeling she is missing her bed, mostly because she hasn't been sleeping so good. Her and I are able to catch a few Z's here and there.

I'm sure the summer will be over before we know it. Danielle starts school on August the 17th, but in the meantime we will continue to try and enjoy ourselves and our family for the short time we have left.
