4th of July!

Selah is such a doll!
Jared and Porter in front of this old garage/barn. I don't know what it is but Jared thought it would be cool to get a picture.

Sack race in the park after the parade!

Porter in the sack race!

Alex did really good until he saw everyone had finished and then he fell. I tried to pick him up and help him finish but he was done. He was so tired!

Alex is the little guy lined up with all the big kids.

He was so excited to race!

Whitney and Kayla! Best Buds!

Erik, Kristina, Alex, and Kayla

I think Alex was upset because Porter and Selah picked up the last 2 pieces of candy that were thrown! It is amazing the way a 3 year old thinks!(the end of the world)

Fire trucks and police cars are being really loud! Alex cried once because one of the fire trucks honked his horn and startled him. It was endearing!

Jared, Tia, Selah, and Porter

Princess Selah

The fire trucks got pretty loud!

My little sweet angel!

I love this girl!

Tia and Selah

Watching the Parade!

Tia, Me, and Whitney!

Getting ready to pose but Tia had some parenting to do before we posed!

I guess this is just a random shot of everyone waiting for the parade!

Porter and Selah!

They are so cute!

Alex chomping on his candy!

Tia and Jared drove all night and got here at 4 a.m. on the 4th. We got up and got ready and went to the 4th of July parade in Afton. . .Minnesota. (that was for all you Idahoans and Wyoming People) It was such a fun day. The kids had a great time. We decided instead of leaving quickly we would hang out in the park and let the kids play. We all had something to eat (hot dogs, brats, chicken, egg rolls and rice), the park had several stands to choose from. They had bobbing for apples and sack races for the kids. Then we walked back to our cars which I forgot to mention were parked at least a mile away. Then we went home and relaxed. Erik and Jared got stuff to BBQ, so we BBQued later in the afternoon. We left at about 9ish to go watch the fireworks. Then we all came home and crashed. It was a fun filled day with good company and good food. . . what more can you ask for!

Hey, we were at the very beginning of the Afton parade. It was short but good. Nothin' like a hometown parade! Those pics of Kayla's cheeks are so cute. Let me know when you want to make the trek down to the zoo.
