Dezember Family Summer of Fun!

So I wanted to update you all with all the fun we have been having this summer and share some new pictures:

Here is Cooper drinking his Route 64 oz Lemon-Berry slushy (with Lime) from Sonic on our way to Newport, OR. He loves to drink...must get that from his dad....

We had a great time on the 4th of July watching the fireworks off of the Pier down at the historic Marina. We ate at least 2 pounds of Salt Water Taffy

And had a great time! The next day we went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. The underwater tubes were the coolest part.

Watch out for those Sharks girls!

And for those Giant Japanese Crabs! Creepy!

We also saw giant bronze sea turtles, sea lions, and three cute kids!
Then it was off to Nehalem bay to go crabbing with Grandma and Grandpa and the Henricksen's and all the rest of the family...even Kyle and Laura came all the way up from Provo! Good Times! Here we are at Tillamook Cheese factory:

When we got home we performed in our Ward Luau. We have been learning hula for almost 2 years now so it was fun to show off our stuff. The girls perfomed 3 numbers and Mom even shook her stuff for the whole ward to see.

Everyone was really impressed and said they felt like they were at the Polynesian Center in Hawaii

And then we Closed on our First Home in July!!! Finally! It was a long journey but totally worth it in the end. We purchased the home that we are currently living in from the Previous owner who gave us a great deal because he didn't want to have to deal with putting a house on the market right now. It worked out well for both of us. He didn't have to put the house on the market and we didn't have to move our stuff!

The kids are hanging in there but ready to start school again. Kendall got a letter from the President:

Brinley Built the tallest block tower EVER!

And Cooper got a buzz cut!
Hope you're all having a great summer too!
Love the Dezember's
