July was a fun and busy month. We started by going to Utah to visit family and friends and to spend the 4th of July there. We had a blast. We got to hike with the kids to water falls, visited Paula and her family, visited Maqueca and her family, walked around BYU, hiked the Y on the 4th, went to the zoo at Thanksgiving Point, took the kids to the movies for the first time (didn't go so well), saw two firework shows, etc. We did everything we had planned to do there. We also announced to everyone that we are expecting baby #3. The official due date for now is December 19. We are very excited. We are not going to find out the gender this time. So let us know what your guess is. Kylie and Austin have picked names already. After Utah, we came back to Colorado and continued to enjoy the mild summer we are having. We took the kids camping for the first time. We only went to the back yard, just in case. It actually went very well. The kids enjoyed it. We will do it again this summer before the weather changes. We will venture out next summer once JoLynn is not pregnant. Ariel got to go to Holland in the middle of July for business. It was his second time there. We took so many pictures in July that we have to have 2 posts to make them fit this time around. The continuation to the pictures is below this post. August will be a fun month too. JoLynn's belly will continue to grow, the kids will both start school, and towards the end of the month we get to go to Red Rocks again for another concert. We hope to get a little less rain in August as well before fall comes.
