Its here. At least that's what I've been told. We have made it swimming a few times but currently Utah has acquired a monsoon season. Strange. We've started swimming lessons and gymnastics, in the process of finishing dance and school, had a root canal (me, not the girls) and have several doctor's appointments before the weather can clear so its not my fault we're not at Cherry Hill to swim every day.

Tate is six months old already! Where has the time gone? She is definitely my most petite baby. She is very happy and calm yet energetic (I'm beginning to worry about when that energy is able to move around...scary). She has rolled over in both directions but isn't so hot about being consistent, I'm not worried. She is a chatter box. That girl will talk all day long (baby talk, of course).

On a side note, Phil had to go to Cooperstown, NY for work a week ago and got to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Yeah for him!

Delta aka. Zion

We had a chance to head down to Delta last month and visit Phil's grandparents. We got to visit with his Grandma Nielsen pretty well one on one (which I have NEVER done in our entire 8.5 married years). It was really fun to visit with her and hear her stories. Then Phil's aunt took us out to her friend's place who had brand new ponies. Phil's Grandma Cox made us fried chicken and milk gravy (Phil's all time favorite meal) and we got to spend some time with both Cox grandparents. Phil really does love Delta, me...not so much. It was a fun weekend and the girls loved playing with the horses so everyone was happy (and yes, Brit did wear her sparkle shoes out on the farm, much to her father's dismay-not appropriate farm shoes, how embarrassing!).
