I give it a 10.0

Even though it takes a small miracle to get The Dickie Clan all in the same place at the same time, it's a pretty fun time. We went to the rec. center and the main attraction turned out to be diving...especially daring each other to go off the highest dive. There were a handful of Dickies on the highest dive for 40 minutes. Debating. 10 minutes Jason...20 minutes we hear Tash yelling "I'm going to Maui" then 20 more minutes of pacing, all of us at the bottom yelling "just do it!" Finally Brent took the plunge...and then Jessica and Zak. Brave! I was pretty impressed. Brett and Eddie and all of the kids went off some pretty decent high dives. Carson even went on the "big" diving board twice. That kid is so cute. He said that under water he was thinking "oops, I don't know if I'll make it up to the top" poor guy. Overall I give our fun day at the rec. center a 10.

Girls Day!

We often get to celebrate our little girls. Days are full of princess activities, tea parties, dress up, house (or as Laney Jessup calls it...home), polly pockets, babies, pet shop, story time, a show, Hullabaloo and start over again. If we get all of these things in at least twice a day my little London has a happy day. Otherwise, at the end of the day I get the

"Mom, we just didn't do anything fun today!"

The End Is Near

Summer is so fun!
is one of Carson's most redundant quotes. I agree! Summer has been full of friends, movies, splashparks, lunch groups, campouts, grandma and grandpa's house, barbeques, getaways-the list could go on and on. We had such a fun Summer.

Jane, Amber, and Krista throw a decent party givingthe kids some great Summer memories.

Here are some pics:

Featuring a handful of Bengtzens, a couple of Doutts, a few Mildenhalls, a group of Atkinsons, a plethora of Hottons, a pinch of Rudys, a magnitude of Basingers, a good amount of Scholes, a chunk of Maylett, and a Baird.

(if I forgot someone it was probably on purpose and means I don't really like you)

Love you all!

"Summer is so fun"
