July-1 Offen's Come to Town

I'm trying to catch up, so much has happened! 
Back in July we had a crazy couple of weeks! 
After the 4th I only had a couple of days to recover before some family came into town. 
(There was so much going on that I'm going to have to break it up into different posts!)
Back In April when we were down in Arizona Ryan's sister Sasha talked about coming up over summer break to get out of the heat and have a vacation for a couple of weeks. Before we knew it summer was half over and it was time for them to come!
Ella and Jack couldn't wait to see their cousin's!

After a very long drive the Offen's made it to Utah.
Lilly warmed up to Zach right away. He loves little babies!

The first couple of days were pretty relaxed.
I had always wanted to check out all of the cute little shops in down town American Fork, so one afternoon we did. It was nice to get out of the house and go for a walk. Ella and Tori bought matching bracelets. We also got our tickets for the carnival that weekend!
Since it was the week of American Fork's "steel days" and pioneer day there were some free activities in the community. The only one we really did was to go to the pool. At first we thought it was going to be too crazy, but it ended up being a lot of fun and I'm glad we went.
Ella is in activity days, I can't believe it!! She looks forward to going each time and feels so grown up. I had volunteered to help with this activity before I realized that Tori would be here, but it worked out great because then she got to come along. It was Tori's last time at activity days as she was about to turn 12 and be a part of young women's. That day will get here all to quickly for Ella too!

While there the activity director asked that I take a couple of pictures of each girl for a later activity.
Such sweet, good girls. I'm so glad that Ella has such wonderful friends.
The girls were all wet because we were at a splash pad!
So that was pretty much the first 4 or 5 days... more to come!
