Dave's sister and her six kids came to stay with us for a little while at the beginning of the summer.
To say the kids were excited about that would be a serious understatement. They adore these guys.
(Max about died when he realized it happened to coincide with his volleyball trip. He missed most of it and we were all pretty sad about that little fact.)
When you have visitors come to the desert in the summer, pretty much all you can do is swim.
We spent one night with a whole bunch of other moms in the area here:
(with an awesome "living social" deal)
And we spent that night laughing 'til we cried at funny youtube videos (have you seen this one?)

We rode around like this:
...and dragged them to see the cool construction of this.
(Our Gilbert Temple...more about that back here.)
We also dragged them into our daily "crossfit workout summer routines." They were good sports.
We had a "Pies & Ties" gathering for one cousin who is leaving on a mission THIS MONTH. We're all so excited for him.
The moms got to go to lunch:
...and so did the adults (minus one couple who had a family reunion conflict).
Have I mentioned how much I love my in-laws?
