The new house, Kings Island and continue from the summer crazyness!

I have been meaning to post some pictures of our new house for a long time and now that we have finally "almost" unpacked I felt like I could take pictures to post. So here it is:
First I'm going to show some pictures of the rural area where we live now, it is really night and day from where we were, it is total country trees and farms, It's really beautiful!
There is a huge equestrian farm right across the street from the subdivision that we live in, I love looking at it every time I drive by; there are actually a couple down the road too!

You can't tell very well but this is corn, I took this picture last week and now the corn is taller then Bridger.
This is our subdivision.
And this is the house!! It's very small but I love it, this isn't a very good picture cause it's later in the evening and you can't see all the flowers I planted.

And best of all:

We also just got back from a little overnight stay in Ohio to visit the amusement park "Kings Island" equivalent to the "Lagoon" in Utah, however it is much bigger and better! So here are a few pictures of that. But I also have to mention that Bridger is the bravest little kid I know, he went on all the roller coasters that he was tall enough for, he even went on the upside down roller coasters, I don't think I would have gone on them.

So that is Kings Island, it was a blast! Shaylie cried on the way home cause she didn't want to leave. It was a really fun trip!

And that is our summer up to date, hopefully I'll keep up so these won't be so long.

We have been so busy this summer I haven't been able to post anything... but because we have been so busy I have a TON and I mean a TON of stuff to catch up on!
So I'll stop rambling about nothing and get to the good stuff!

In the middle of May we were able to have Grandma Jensen and uncle Dallen come and stay with us for a couple of weeks. We were able to go and do lots of fun things and the kids had a blast!
For Mothers day... we had a lot of fun running around Lafayette playing at parks. One of the parks we went to we came across a random frog near the playground, it was seriously the highlight of the day, we had so much fun with this stupid frog it was really funny. This is Dallen "licking" the frog.
Then, in the middle of June we came across a problem in our townhouse; we had a water leak that had apparently had been there for a little while long enough to grow some mold and they were going to have to cut out some drywall and make a huge mess in the house for a while, and since we were moving out in a couple of weeks anyway, they just let us cut our lease a month early and move out. So that's what we did! In this picture you can see the mold along the floor boards and in the carpet pad, it smelled so bad and I figured out that I have an allergy to mold, when they pulled up the carpet I got so sick I didn't have much of a voice while we were frantically packing to move.
On June 23rd Steve turned *32* we had a small BBQ for him and it was just a small family party but it was a lot of fun. Poor Steve has his birthday and fathers day around the same time so a lot of his presents were combined, but I think he was ok with it cause he got a new BBQ so he can grill out in our backyard "again" Yay!!
