Independence Day!

 Riverton City had a parade on Friday, July 3rd.  Jess, Mom and I took the kids over to watch.  It was pretty fun for the kids.  I think they thought they'd died and gone to heaven with all of the candy from the floats.  We saw a few familiar faces up there too; that was fun!



 On the morning of the 4th we attended a ward breakfast with my mom.  Traditional American breakfast was a great way to start the day!  Evan wasn't feeling really well all week and after breakfast he was sick again, poor kid!





 Later that evening Evan finally started feeling well enough again to go out and we headed over to Lehi to see the fireworks from Thanksgiving Point.  We had planned on meeting up with some friends but we didn't want to share our germs.

Jax was the cutest about the fireworks.  He though they were so cool and kept saying "ooh" and "wow".  Ryan said it was his best 4th of July ever.  It was a great time of year to be back in America, that's for sure!

Old Farm Splash Park

Jess and I met up with our cousins Cheryl and Stacy and all of our kiddos at the Splash Park here in Riverton.  The kiddos had a great time running around at the park and us moms had a fun time catching up.  We think we have the CUTEST kids around!

visiting friends

The boys and I set out to see as many friends as we could the first week we were back.  On Monday we met Teresa and her four beautiful children at the park.  On Tuesday we surprised Ryan's best buddy Brady and went swimming and had Hawaiian Shaved Ice.  On Wednesday we had lunch with Miriam and her two cuties.  On Thursday we saw the Johnson kids and I went to lunch with my good friends Stacy, Tiffany, and Becky.  It sure was nice meeting up with everyone and catching up on their lives over the past year.

7 Peaks

On Saturday we all went to Seven Peaks Water Park.  Jess & Cole, Karen & Chris, Marsha, Jean, and all of the kids enjoyed a really fun day at the water park. I really love going to Seven Peaks with my cousins because we all enjoyed it so much as kids and now we're taking our own kids to enjoy it too.  Ah, the circle of life!
