Our 4th of July

We started off our 4th up at Palisades Lake with my family. The kids had a blast swimming and playing while Clint was off golfing with the dudes. It was nice just hanging out with the family and soaking up the sun.

My boys with their cousins.

Mr. T loves to wear my sun glasses.

The boys doing a little canoeing with their dad.

N tried so hard to catch a fish in his little bucket.

I would like to give a special thanks to my sisters Jodi and Jacki for teaching Mr. T how to pee in the mountains. One of these days I promise to teach your kids a thing or two.

We went to a motor cross.... we had never been before and my boys thought it was the coolest thing ever. They kept saying "sweeeet!" Hopefully they don't get any big ideas. I have to say it was pretty fun to see.

N and T at the festivities.

A the Dancing king at the concert before the fireworks.

The next day was the parade. My sister and her husband run the town paper, so all my nieces and nephews were in the parade as newsies. It was pretty cute.

A getting ready for the parade.

A and my nephew Carson walking in the parade.

N and T working hard for the candy,

Everyone needed a turn on Ryan and Jacki's sweeet new 4 wheeler when we were all done.

Thanks Jodi and Mark for having us over for the 4th!! We had a blast, just like we do every year!!

After the Gunnison festivities, we headed to Neil and Becky's annual party for some good ole volleyball, steaks, and home made ice cream (no pics, sorry). It was great visiting with everyone there and we hope to see you all next year!

A's insight on the temple....

We had the opportunity to attend the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house this last Tuesday with the kids and A had some real great insight that we wanted to remember. As we were leaving he told us:

"I think the temple is just a really beautiful place, but the most important place is our home".

How right you are little man. Couldn't have put it better ourselves.
