It's Independence Day!!!

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!
