4th of July 2011

We had a wonderful 4th of July. The weekend started out roughly with Parker getting sick on Thursday. He had a high fever with a cough/cold. Saturday we had is birthday party with my family and Chase left that night with a high fever and feeling terribly. We stayed home from church the next day and the kids recovered. We were somewhat ready for the holiday on Monday. It was VERY hot, so we knew it might be kind of rough with kids who were not 100%. Thankfully, we had a good time. We went to the parade with family and enjoyed lunch with everyone. We headed out around 1:30 for naps. We were more than ready to get in some air conditioning.

We had planned to go watch fireworks at the levy in River Park, but the kids weren’t up for it. We went to the Costco parking lot near Cal Expo and got to see a few fireworks. It was late, our kids were tired, but we had a great time! We hope to make it to River Park next year!

loved all your updates. Crazy how easy time just slips by! I think my favorite line was "daddy makes fun of me for the head bands poo on him!" LOL. Nick does the same thing, he hates when I put them on Keira. I guess he won that one since she hates it too. Thanks for having us over today we had a blast!

I love the 4th of July - its fast becoming my most favorite holiday.
Looks like you guys had a wonderful day! It was beastly hot here too. So much so, I got in the kiddie pool and I've always been able to resist those :)

Cute pics! Fun to see Brandon and his family too!
