Summer Fun!!!

We have had a great summer so far! So this post is going to be long, sorry if it's boring. We have done a lot of things, and Tessa has loved coming along and experiencing things for the first time. As most of you know on Aaron's side of the family there was 5 granddaughters born all with in one year. Tessa was the last, which made her the 24th grandchild in the Peterson family. We were finally able to get a picture of all of them together.
All of the girls! from right to left: Lydia, Madi, Charly, Millie, and Tessa!
We also went to the duck pond with my sisters Kailee and Kara and her little boy Colin. Although Tessa sleep through the whole thing, I enjoyed getting out of the house and seeing all the birds and the beautiful nature.

We went to church the first Sunday after we got out of the hospital for Charlys blessing day. Tessa again just slept threw the whole thing.

All the girls and the moms.

The whole Peterson clan.
We went camping up at North Fork with Aaron's Mom, Dad, two brothers, sister in law and niece. It was fun and Tessa loved being out side.

We went to the fireworks that Weber State puts on for the 24th of July. Tessa again just slept through the firework show. But she liked just laying on the blanket and looking at the sky.

For the Ogden Days Parade Aaron drove the Hunstville Stakes float. It was a pretty sweet float. And it was very nice to sit in the truck and have the AC going. Tessa sat on my lap the whole time (we were only going 5 miles an hour if that). She slept some of the time and looked around for a bit.

The float!

All in all this has been a fun summer! Tessa has also smiled for the first time, but I haven't been able to catch it on camera. And we went boating on Pineview dam for my niece, Rio's birthday. My sister Shanelle also just had a baby girl (Sailor) two months before Tessa was born and so they had a small life jacket just the right size for Tessa, so she was able to go on the first boat ride. Again, she slept through that. I didn't have my camera, but my sister Kara had hers and is going to send me pictures.
