Happy 4th of July! Love this day! It is so fantastic to celebrate in Blanding with all the people who truly love this country. It's a day full of fun parade sweatiness, cousins, pop-cycles, junk food and fireworks!
We have the best cousins that help out with little ones. I am so grateful for them.
The striped shirts weren't even planned but great minds think alike!! After the parade and a short nap for the littles, we hit up the Dinosaur Museum. And, yes, we do have one of those in Blanding. I had never been but it was kinda awesome! Great exhibits and Coy was in heaven.
A few weeks prior to the 4th I decided that the kids would have fun selling glow bracelets. I figured they could save their money for when we go on our Lyman family vacay in a few weeks. I really think the kids had fun, but as it was getting dark, business boomed and a very helpful Dad and Grandpa came to the rescue and helped until the kids were sold out! They made a bunch of money and all were really excited about it. Livvy wasn't too happy when I made them pay me back the money I put into it to buy them in the first place. It was cool to show them cost vs. profit. I am so grateful for this country and the opportunities it provides. #fightagainstcommoncore #plug
It was also fun to have Jeff and Dawnya stay with us for the weekend with the 6 kids. They were so fun and my kids loved them. Coy especially latched onto Kaleb. What good kids. I am so glad Jeff and Dawnya found each other!
One last thing to mention on the weekend of the 4th, was Jeremy had his 20 year reunion. Holy crap!! He is old!
