The 4th of July that keeps on givin'!

 In conjunction with all our other 4th of July activities, Grandma planned her annual camping trip at Deer Creek Reservoir this year.  It was absolutely beautiful!

 Cousin Time!

 Can I have S'MORES, please?!

 Waking up in the tent

David's Aunt and Uncle own a boat and took us all out for a day of boating.  It was a lot of fun! 

 I think we wore little Brandon out.
David wakeboarding and Adam imagining himself out there someday!

Ellie's Baby Blessing
To add to all the 4th of July festivities and fun, we went to Ellie's baby blessing.  She is such a sweet girl and we are excited that our little baby will have a cousin close in age.

4th of July Blast

We had a busy, but fun 4th of July.  We started it out bright and early with the Freedom Run down in Provo.  It was a great race and our second year to do it.  We love that we can push the kids and run together along the Parade Route.  

 The kids did great and enjoyed all the yummy post race treats and drinks.

We then enjoyed the Freedom Fest Parade!

 We then went to Grandma's house for a BBQ and fireworks show.  David and Uncle Michael did the honors.

We also got to enjoy the neighbor's show with the big fireworks that shot up in the sky.
 Adam kept wanting to light the fireworks, which made me a little nervous.  Where I grew up, fireworks were illegal to do yourself, so I am not completely comfortable with the whole idea, but the kids and David had fun and it was a good show!
 Oh how sparklers scare me, but there is just something fascinating about holding fire I guess!!

 Adam and his cousin, Daniel
 Happy 4th of July!

That's what little girls are made of!

We're having a little girl!  She is due on November 27th.  We are very excited and hope she can survive a house full of boys:)
