Days 1-8!!!! (Out of 81 FUN DAYS OF SUMMER!!)

So far the first week of summer VACAY has been fabulous!!! 

Day 1 was Ammons birthday and we went to the Dino Museum and had a party!!! At the Dino Museum they even scored big points with me and Pres when we discovered the wheelchair accessible Dino Dig!!!!! Yahoooo!

Day 2
We went to mommy's favorite place (Midway!) and went to Gramma Varneys party at the Chalet!!! It was so much fun!!! Ps Charlotte is the funniest and spunkiest poser!!! 
Day 3 was family Dinner at Gramma and Grampa Gleason's and getting ready for surgery for Day 4.
Surgery went well! She lengthened her rods to the max and next surgery may be a big one!  She rode home in style with her Oakleys with the window down only 2 hours post surgery! Rock. Star!

Day 5 was recovery home day but we did get out to swing and slide in our backyard :) 

Day 6 was TUMBLING (first time!!) for Charlotte! It was so much fun and I am already So happy I got her signed up! It's at our neighbors home so it is so easy to walk up with the girls! 
Then we discovered our cherry tree was coming along quite nicely and realized the birds were eating the reddest ones!! So we picked some early and they were soooo good still! 
Charlotte and Presley discovered that together they can open the gate!!!

"Hop on Charlotte, I will raise my chair....good....okay now lift the handle and open the gate so we can run away!!!" 


Okay I need a lock :) 
Day 7 and we decided to FLY A
On my part of putting together and executing the launch...but we are really
Good at adapting to our circumstances so this is how we did it.......(the girls didn't know any different so I still consider it a *sort of* win!!!) 

Day 8!!!! 
Let's roller skate!!
(That rhymed!) 

So we were going to do the usual: Presley on speed 4 cruising and doing her speed thang and pcharlotte scootibg on her scooter....but last minute we decided to rent skates for both girls (and of course I brought my *blades* from the 90's and we ROCKED THAT RINK!!!! Presley was BEAMING that she was really skating with everyone else!!!!!! Best day!!!!!

81 days of SUMMER VACAY STARTS.......


Sunday drive

I love that our girls think Park City is the ultimate destination hahaa!! And we don't need Mountainside Resort to be open to have fun hahaa! 

Driving/Running on speed 4 with no toes to run over=perfect Sunday afternoon when we accidentally missed church. (Oops, didn't remember it was stake conference!) 

PC on the hill stands for Presley & Charlotte didn't ya know??

Tulip Festival

Rolling down the hill, and rolling up the hill, running (walking fastly) down the hill with Presley ;) , watching dancers and performers, smelling the flowers and went for a stroll. That was our afternoon :) SO happy it's beautiful weather!! 

Her perspective

Presley is smart. She reads ahead of what's expected in kindergarten. She is good at math. She loves to learn!

Presley is fun. She loves her friends and her friends love her. She loves adventure! She likes to go fast in her chair and have her body shoot forward only to be abruptly pulled back again with the seat belt. (I am not a fan of such actions however haha) She likes to drive around in the van in the rain and look for puddles to splash. She teases. She jokes. She giggles and is mischievous!

She is beautiful! She is pretty to look at but it is more than on the outside. Her little light shines through and makes her illuminate happiness and beauty! She loves to choose her clothes, how her hair is styled and isn't happy unless it's her choice. :) Girl's got style for sure! 

Presley knows she does things differently, but she also knows she is the same. A few weeks ago after school she said, 

"Mom, my hand got tired today at school with my hand brace and I couldn't lift it anymore to write my friends hands never get tired......but mine do.......(***and then she burst into a song from Daniel Tigers Neighborhood***) ..Sometimes we are different but in so many ways, we are the same!!" 

That's my girl :)

Presley often says to me before bed, "We are always going to be *togedder* right mom? Forever."

Melts my heart every time! 

Then the other night she asked me to help her spell "together" so she could write it on her iPad for me cause "that's what we'll be".

I love her :)
