4th of July

We had a great 4th of July this year. On the third we went up to Logan to be with Jeff's family at his sister Denise's. She has a cute home, with the best backyard for the kids to run around in. She was kind enough to have us up this year even though she wasn't moving much, thanks to a surgery she had the week before. The fireworks as always were wonderful. We were up early the next morning to get the girls ready to be in the parade. Afterwards we went to lunch as IHOP, since we couldn't do breakfast. That evening we visited with family at the Tucker and then headed to Clearfield for their amazing display of fireworks. We were able to some of Jeff's family there and see Jamin's family and Jay. Since Daddy was laid up with his knee, we bought some fireworks and headed to Mom and Dad's the next night to light some off with the family. It was a nice quiet event, but the kids loved it just he same.

Coming Home

Jeff's parents have been serving a mission in the New York, New York North mission for almost the last year. All year all the kids kept asking when are they coming home, so we told them at the end of July, after the 4th (easier for Lindsey this remember). This morning after the kids had gotten up Gavin said, "Mom today is July 1st, right?" After saying yes Gavin yelled, "Grandma and Grandpa are coming home this month!" And so presided a celebration of yells and yeahs and running around our kitchen. So cute!
