Happy Birthday America!

I love the 4th of July. The patriotism, the fireworks, the parades, the food, all of it is pretty much awesome. At church we had a breakfast and make shift parade with the kids on bikes. They loved that. LeAnn (my sister) and Eric came up with there kids for fireworks here in Thornton. We lost Eden for 15 the fireworks because she wondered off. Luckily one of the many police found her and kept her for us. They had parachuters at our fireworks show which was totally awesome.

Swimming Frenzy

We have gone swimming several times this summer like everyone else. Gideon is getting more adventurous which is fun to see. Eden goes though phases of loving the pool and being deathly afraid. Larke loves the pool and is the one that fights me the most about leaving.

I gave in. Dang it!

So I guess I've decided to join the blogging phenomenon. My kids are getting bigger everyday and there are so many people that I love and care about that are missing the wonder of it all. My sister in law, M'Recia has been staying with us for the summer and taking awesome pictures for me with her awesome camera. She offered to teach me how to blog and how to get myself on facebook and so I am giving in. This may be the only post I ever do since I have M'Recia sitting here holding my hand, but I am a big girl so I should be able to do this by myself.
