4th of July extravaganza!!!

We had a busy 4th of July!  We started the day with watching the Millcreek Parade! 

Lance participated in the parade, it was cute to see him ride by!

We then headed to Evergreen Jr. High to play the games! 

After the park, we had a BBQ with our friends the Walkers.  It was raining on the 4th of July, and amazingly enough our carport came right in very handy! 

Roasting some dogs! 

After the BBQ, we were headed up the canyon to see Spence's family, but once we realized it would take us 2 hours, we headed to the outlets and shopped around.  On our way home, we pulled over and took a few pics in the wild flowers. 

Then we headed to my parents house for another delicious BBQ! 

Lance loving his new cup! 

My brother and his cute wife Kelli!

My parents! 

The most divine cupcakes I've ever had!

Watching fireworks with my parents neighbors!

My friends little boy Tate, was so cute with the Tootles!

And finally the day ended with some sparklers at our own house and then Lance and I headed over and watched the fireworks at Sugarhouse Park! 

Wow, that was exhausting just writing about it!  Definitely a fun and memorable day!

July 2nd Festivities!

I think we started a new 4th of July tradition this year, and that is going to see the fireworks up at some golf course up North.  It was so fun!  It was the Saturday before the 4th, and it was a happening place - food, and games, and a live band, and amazing fireworks! 

Here we are jamming out to the music! 

I have the cutest sister in laws in the world, seriously, they are so fun! 

I participated in my first flash mob, which was a blast! 

Em and I waiting for the fireworks to start!

This is how Tallie watched the fireworks, with her face away from them!  Silly girl! 

Such a great night, we will definitely be back next year!

BBQ with the Reams!

I love summer BBQ's!  We had our friends the Reams over for a fun BBQ and had a blast!  We even whipped out the fire pit for some yummy S'mores.  The kids were a big fan of that! 

Tallie & Taylin riding some bikes!

Speen and Vic manning the fire!

Me & Linds relaxing! 

July Happenings!

Here are some pictures of some of the day to day stuff we did this summer! 

I bought this awesome table for $15 off KSL!  I love it!  It was so fun to just send the kids outside to eat with out worrying about the messes! 

We spent a ton of time playing with sprinklers and water toys, the best, jumping on the tramp with the water toys with friends!

Lance and Owen started a water fight with my neighbors Kadi & Ulekeya!

Lance & Owen have become really good buddies this past year! 

Lance has never really been into playing with toys, so it made me happy that he was playing with all his cars during quiet time!

My handsome 3 year old - about a week away from turning 4!

Lance and Tallie are really starting to become good buddies, it is so great! 

Of course the fountains at the Gateway!

Goofy picture before church!

Lance said his first prayer in Primary!  I wasn't sure how it would go, you know would he be shy or what?  And it was seriously awesome!  He got up there, no help and said the longest prayer that the primary president had to get up and kind of get him to wrap it up.  He started going around the room and praying for each kid individually, so awesome!

Oh my Tallie is THE biggest DIVA!  She was having a tantrum as I got her out of the car, and so she laid down on the pavement and started her nap early!

Lance's favorite thing to do at the mall - ride the escalator with my mom over and over again!

I just had to post this, case one night Speen and I had so much fun just laughing at this balloon bounce out of our fan over and over again!  Wow, we are losers!

And Lance & Owen at Cars 2.  Such a fun little outing!
