Where Have We Been All Summer?


I did not take much time for blogging in the summer, so I thought I would do a little catch up. We had a great summer! I think summer time is my favorite. There are so many fun things to do. Our clubhouse and pool were finished in May, so we spent a lot of time at the pool. This is a picture of Marc's family swimming. Everyone got together for the 4th of July. Our family overtook the pool, and everyone had a lot of fun!


Dash and his cousin, Cache, love to swim and eat chips at the pool. They aren't afraid of the water!




Marc's Diet


We had a weight loss competition in Marc's family to get ready for Lake Powell. This is how Marc started off his diet- a big chocolate milk shake. He didn't win, but he still lost weight!




This was the first dessert to kick off the Lake Powell feast. We all dug in with our spoons to eat this ice cream sundae out of the "pig trough."



All ten of the McCann siblings came on our trip to Lake Powell! We had a big celebration before Andrea leaves on her mission. Our talent show was dedicated to her this year.





Marc entertained us by jumping, flipping, and diving off the houseboat.





This is my favorite thing to do at Lake Powell! Water rocket wars! It gets pretty crazy!




One of the highlights of the trip was reading books from the Twilight series. Even Marc's brothers couldn't resist reading them! (Not really. It was part of their skit for the talent show.)




Marc and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary while we were in Lake Powell. It was a lot of fun! We even had fireworks to celebrate.



The Perfect Day- 6 Years Ago!




This is our first ripe tomato! It was my first ever attempt at growing a garden. All we had were tomatoes on our balcony, but the kids loved to water them. They tried eating the tomatoes, but they didn't like them.



We celebrated Dash's 2nd birthday! Grandma Jackie bought him a shaggy dog cake.
He loved blowing out the candles! He did it several times before we finished singing.
We also celebrated with his cousin, London. They share the same birthday! It was her first birthday this year.
She dug into her cake, and then was nice enough to let Dash join in. But she didn't want to share her new little bike that Grandma bought her. She kept pulling the other kids off of it.
What a cute little angel, or at least he was then! Now the terrible twos have kicked in. He's learned to climb out of his crib and he loves to throw tantrums, but we still love him.

This is Kylie's favorite meal. Cheese tortillas, chips, salsa, sour cream, and green sauce! She always wants to eat it down stairs.





We went camping and bought Kylie a princess fishing pole, so she could go fishing with her dad. Kylie caught her first fish! She was so excited, but holding it wasn't her favorite part.





Kylie started preschool! She has wanted to go for over a year, because her friends went to school. This is a picture of her after her first day. She loves her teacher Miss Ann!

You've been busy this summer! No wonder you haven't blogged. I miss Lake Powell. It's such a heavenly place! Can you believe it has been 6 years? You are on your way to 10. We just had our 5 and I can't believe how fast it goes. Good thing we have eternity right? Chris started a diet for Jamaica this summer too. Yeah...he eats ice cream and soda almost everyday and has lost 5 pounds already. Ahh...to be a guy. I'm teaching 6 classes a week and haven't lost a pound. Inches but no pounds. Grr....Glad to see you are having fun! And good luck to Kylie in preschool! Loved Dash' shaggy dog cake! How cool he has the same birthday as London.

Hi, Jess. Long time no, huh?

In speaking with Alicia the other day and then Patience emailed me today, she mentioned you had a blog. Hooray! We can keep in touch again {because we were pretty awful at it when we lived 5 minutes apart!}.

I hope you're doing well! Your family is getting to be so big - I can't believe you've been married 6 years already. I hope you're happier than ever.
