4th of July

We had a great 4th of's a quick recap!

I tried really hard to get a picture of all the kids. These two were the best I could come up with. It's really hard to get them all looking at the camera at the same time, let alone smiling at looking at the camera.

What a cutie!

Our ward had a 4th of July breakfast and celebration. The kids did a parade with their bikes in the church parking lot. They loved decorating their bikes and showing them off in the parade.

We went out to Fern Ridge with my family and Jed's family. It was fun to relax around the lake. We played games had hamburgers, and chased the kids. The fireworks at the lake lasted forever, just when we thought they were done and started to pack things up, they started again. David, my dad, Charlie, Katie, and Sydney took the canoe out in Fern Ridge. I don't think they really liked it because they went just a little ways and then came right back. David said it felt like it was going to tip the whole time, and the last time my dad went out in it, he did tip it. We need to get them a sturdier boat, and one with a motor!

Just found your blog via Kristen's blog. Love the patriotic family pictures. You have such a cute family, and the kids look like they're having so much fun at the ward 4th of July breakfast parade. We loved being back in that ward for a time. Lucky you!
