Bassett Family Reuntion!

We had a little reunion this summer with as many of the family as could be there. We had some fun activities to do and did it all in the fun neighborhood of Bear Lake. First day we visited the Paris ice caves and spring. You have to love when you click a picture like this first one. Peyton liked the ice caves.
This is (L toR) Grandma Sony, Bret, Chris, Britnee, Peyton, Cody, Brooklyn, and Jaycee. There wasn't as much snow in there as there usually is, but it was still fun for the kids.

(L to R) Brooklyn, Jaycee, Zack, Cody, Jacob, Chris, Britnee, and Peyton at the ice caves.
Michelle, Bart, and Brooklyn sporting their sunglasses. They are all their own characters and this picture shows you that:)
This picture is the best I could get of my two kids together. Peyton didn't want to be contained and Chris was doing the best a 7 year old could do to hang on to her for the picture.
This was Grandma Sony carrying Peyton to the spring for pregnant ol mom. I was only about 22 weeks along, but a 15 month old still gets hard to carry when you're already carrying one.
The spring was super cold, but Peyton liked to dip her toes, not her feet, mind you, in the water. Grandma was so patient to hold her as she'd dip her legs down and sucked them right back up.
Grandma wanted a picture with her and most of her grandkids(minus KaDee, Erik, and Wyatt). It ended up being quite a feet not knocking other kids in the water while she tried to contain the two toddlers on her lap and get everyone looking for a picture, but it turned out cute:) And it's the memories that count!
My little Peyter Bug LOVES water, whether it be ice, cold spring water, swimming pool, dirty resevour, blue lake, bath tub, puddles on the sidewalk, so on and so forth, she LOVES water. She's watched the dogs enough to know how this works and she was thirsty, so we got a drink:)
The time with family is priceless! We had a good time and wished everyone could have been there, but with the family growing all the time, it's getting harder and harder to get everyone together so we have to make do with what we have, when we have it. I am truely blessed to be a member of the family I belong to. I love them all:)

(:Lagoon 2010:)

We get Lagoon season passes every year because that is where we meet to switch Chris and it's fun to just spend a little time riding rides between driving. Well, we also like to meet family there on weekends and get to spend some time enjoying Lagoon with everyone. Well, when family gets to come, Chris gets to ride the big rides because this year, I can't ride them with him because almost every ride says no pregnant women! And Ben doesn't care for riding the big rides. So Chris got to ride around on the big rides with the Uncles.
Peyton likes Lagoon simply because she gets so much attention for being so dang cute! She's playing peek-a-boo with Grandma Sony while dad rides a ride with Chris.
Here's Chris riding the big bumper cars with Uncle Derek just before we had to leave. We sure enjoy spending time with family, even if it is only for the day.....on a hot day.....that it also rains.....couldn't make up it's mind.....but we have so much fun!

Weekend in Murtaugh!

Ben and I got a chance to go up to Murtaugh to visit Ben's family this summer. Kristie and her girls go to a play date every so often and they happen to have one while we were there so Peyton and I went to visit and play too. Here is her and Jocelynn playing on the swings.
We happen to plan our trip when the Merrill family reunion was planned so we got to visit even more family. Peyton loved the park that we were at.

Aunt Michelle and Uncle Rob brought a football to throw around and Peyton enjoyed the heck out of it.
As if the look on her face here doesn't tell you how much she enjoyed playing with the football!
After playing and playing, she was plum tuckered out and couldn't go any longer so she finally dozed off around 5 that afternoon. Chris happened to be at his dad's that weekend so missed out, but he'll get to go with us the next time, we hope.

24th of July!

With as crazy as the summer was, the weekend of the 24th of July was the first weekend that Chris actually got to come home to Delta. So we tried to keep the weekend pack and fun. To kick it off, there was a little parade in Hinkley that our neighbors invited Chris to be in with them so Peyton, Ben, and I went to watch.
Peyton loves to be outside so she enjoyed the heck out of the church lawn while we waited for the parade to begin.

She enjoyed playing with her daddy too! It looks like she's sleepy, but this only lasted long enough for me to click the picture, then she was gone again:)
Peyton has learned so many more faces that it is so funny to watch her now. And she loves her daddy!

Here is Chris and Bryor riding Bryor's pony in the parade. Chris loved being the cowboy for the day. He loved the weekend and had a ton of fun playing with Bryor and enjoying the festivities of the 24th of July!

Random Events of the Summer!

Chris got a fun 3-D chalk kit for his birthday and he and Britnee got to play with it out on our drive way. This was one of the stincels that when you put the glasses on makes the kids look like great artists.
We have a little blow up pool that we full up for the kids to cool down in during the hot days of Delta summers. Peyton loves when Chris comes home and she has someone to play with:)
Britnee got to come and stay for a week and Chris and Peyton both loved having even one more person to keep them busy;)

I had to wait 15 month for her hair to get long enough to do something with it. It's not long enough on top to do anything with yet, but her pig tails in the back are sure cute:)

Summer T-ball!

Christopher had a whole summer to play at his dad's house, but the one thing he looks forward to no matter where he lives is getting to play T-ball! He plays catch and throws a ball around and hits all spring and fall long so he has gotten pretty good.
This happened to be the first time we got to see Chris after he'd gone to his dad's at the start of the summer so Peyton sure had missed her brother being around. She loved seeing him.

He isn't scared of getting dirty! He loves playing ball, whether its being in the outfield or batting.

Getting to see him at his game was short lived, but we were so glad that we were able to come down and see him play. Peyton didn't want to see him go. She sure loves having a play buddy around.

While watching the game, Peyton got to play with Grandma Sony and Grandpa Rusty. Life with kids is so much fun!

Chris's 7th Birthday!

To start off our summer, my little guy turned 7! So we made a trip up to Layton to the Chuck-e-cheese for his party. We played all day and he ended up with some great memories and tons of tickets!
Then we went out on the lawn to open presents before he headed to Bear Lake to spend the summer with his dad. He got spoiled.

And Peyton was chillin with Grandpa Dayn. She hates to sit on grass so wiggled her way into the "Grandpa Dayn Lazyboy" and watched Chris open his presents:)
He and Jocelynn are such good buddies! She was who he wanted to show all his toys to. He loves when he gets to spend time with his cousins:)
One of his favorite gifts was a skate board! He loves it! He has to learn how to ride it, but he loves to practice.
Can't believe that it's been 7 years since he was just begining life. I love him so much!
