Ice Age 2

This was Briley's first time seeing a movie theater movie. She did great! I think that her favorite part though, was getting to hold her baby cousin Blake! All the kids did really well during the movie (Grammy babysat Shallon). If theater tickets weren't sooo expensive, we might actually do this more often.

4th of July!!! (fireworks)

Our fireworks experience, this year, started off with some fireworks that uncle Ryan brought. Then the kids did some sparklers and Pop-It's. Then we found a large parking lot where some people were setting off their own fireworks and we settled in to watch the show. We could also see the large fireworks display the city (Cedar City) was putting on from where we were.

We had a really great 4th of July!! I only wish that we could get together with our family like this every year. Maybe a new Severts' family tradition?! :)

4th of July!!! (cousins)

It was sooo fun having all the Severts' cousins together. Hopefully we can get together like this often, so they can all be good friends and know each other really well. Plus, look how cute and photogenic they all are!

4th of July!!! (hike)

For the 4th, Greg's brother, Paul, hooked us up with a sweet cabin near Bryce Canyon. The best part was that, not only was it our family and Paul's family, but Ryan's family and Grammy and Granddad!!!! It was sooo fun seeing all the cousins together! These pictures are from a little hike up to Strawberry Point. The view was amazing, but a little nerve wracking with small children.

"Stay continued" for more pictures...

Avalyn's new smile...

Avalyn lost her first tooth today! She is pretty excited about a visit from the tooth fairy tonight!!! I wonder what the going rate for a baby tooth is these days?! I guess we will find out in the morning...

*in case you were wondering, the tooth fairy is giving out 4 quarters for each baby tooth at our house.

While we were in Utah we went swimming at this awesome pool by Paul and Natalie's house. It had water slides, a lazy river and shallow area with fountains, very fun. Unfortunately after we had been there for only about a half an hour there was a lightning storm and the pool had to be cleared. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted! :)

Oquirrh Mountain Temple

While we were in Utah, we were able to go to the Oquirrh Mtn. Temple open house. I don't think that the girls really understood the significance of being able to walk through such a sacred place, but it was still a very special time for our family. We loved being able to show the girls some of the beautiful rooms that they could one day get married in. The girls were very reverent during our walk through (unlike some other kids that were behind us) and they kept commenting on how pretty Heavenly Father's house was!!! This was definitely an amazing, once in a lifetime experience, for our family!
