Family Reunion

Here's some pictures I took at the reunion. Jeff and Ari, Dalton and Preston are in the background. This was at Terry Idol!
Preston likes to copy what Dalton does. Can you tell?
I thought this was a cute picture of Eric and his family.
Hey Blue Eyes!

We missed those who couldn't come. We had a good time. Cherry Hill was nice and relaxing. It was a good idea to have the reunion at the water park.

How was everyone's 4th of July?

How was everyone's 4th of July?

We had a really good 4th. The high was 75 so it wasn't to hot but that didn't stop the kids from having a water balloon fight and playing in kiddy pool. We went to Kirk's parents house and the neighborhood closed down the block. We had volleyball and bag mitten, sidewalk chalk and bubbles. Not to mention the food. Once it got dark it was time for Fireworks, in Portland there isn't really any big firework show, if you want to go to one you either have to drive about an hour or pay and then you are crowded with lots of people. So we have yet to go to one. Its ok because Dave and Diane's neighbors go across the river to Vancouver and buy about $1000.00 worth of illegal fireworks and we have our own little mini show. The had enough fireworks to last 2 hours. it was very fun and the kids got worn out. My wonderful mother in law bought the sparklers and my 3 kids had 72 sparklers to share. They got bored of them though.

I do miss the small town 4th of July festivities, I always remember Kanab being the best. I wish we could go to a community show sometime. Who knows maybe someday we will visit for the 4th, but until there we are making do with our big city 4th of July.

Let us know how your 4th went! As soon as i get pictures from our holiday i will post a new blog on my page but i wanted to start out mom and dad's first for everyone.
