Independence Day

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.
We have started traditions that we do every year now.
And I LOVE traditions!!

I really really {love} this picture of my P.
This year we were able to help Great Grandpa & Grandma S with a float they wanted to do, and P got to ride on the float for a bit.
I love our family.
They are the best!
Here he is waiting for the ride to begin
P and K
Grandpa B wanted to push G. And P wanted to ride with Grandma B
This airplane drops candy, and is driven by my (2nd?) cousin
A lot of fun!
And this night we went and watched the fireworks in our {secret spot} and finished off the night at Grandma B's.
And as a bonus, we went on the following Monday and watched the Brigham fireworks with some friends of ours who live in the perfect spot for it. Thanks Riley and Jess!!

Tay's Visit, and the big 4

***Back in June***
My older sister Heather just moved back to Utah...{Yay!!}
She has lived in the L.A. area for the last three years...
She had to stay in California for work a couple of weeks after they moved back, so my niece Taylor came and stayed with us!
Preston had a blast with her!
We rode the Frontrunner down to Salt Lake to get her
During her stay, we.......
Went swimming
Awesome "curly fry" {Is that what they call them nowadays??}
Went fishing...
Caught this frog by my house...Wierd!
Went fishing some more...
Hired my own personal butterfly catchers...

During her stay, Preston turned 4!!! I can't believe it! It makes me sad that he is growing up, but I am kind of excited to see who he becomes.
It was such a good day. We went to somewhere I haven't been in years and years, Chuck E Cheeses!! I LOVE IT!! I think I wanted to play the games and win the tickets more than P did! And the party followed....

Blowing out the candles
We had a fire truck party, and a pinata to match..
The kids loved it

I think that B-days should be done up BIG, because you just never know what is going to happen and how long everyone will be here. And also, why not??
We love you Preston, and are so glad you came to our family!!
