4th of July!!

Me and Brett, 4th of July 2010

During the day we went swimming with all of Brett's best friends and their wife and kids at Jessica Mcallister's parents house in Stone Cliff. We had a BBQ and then swimming all afternoon. It was fun to see everyone and all their cute kids.

That night we went on Staheli Hill with all our friends and watched the little parade they do. Afterwards we had a hoola hoop contest. It was so much fun!! Everyone got a turn to hoola hoop. I haven't hoola hooped since I was a kid. But I got up their and still could do it, even around my neck!! Then once it got dark we watched the fireworks everyone had brought. It was fun seeing everyone!

Here are all the kids waiting in there seats to watch the fireworks with their cousins! Every year we go to Grandma Elaine's and watch them light off the fireworks from the sunbowl. It is a perfect place to watch them cause it is only 2 blocks down from the sunbowl, so you can still hear all the music and entertainment that they do.

Love These Kids!!

It was so funny one night I was straightening up the house: the kids had gotten their pajamas and getting ready for bed. They all were watching some show that came on t.v. while they were waiting for me to put them to bed. When I came in the room I saw them all laying down together with each other (even Brielle). It was the cutest thing ever. I just had to sneak out and go grab my camera before they moved. I just thought it was the cutest picture ever! It doesn't happen too often!!

Our little Vacation!!

A week after school got out, we went down to Vegas and stayed in a timeshare. The kids had so much fun Swimming. Since it was there first time swimming in awhile. The pools were very nice and had waterfalls they loved to go under. They were the perfect temperature.

Even Brielle loved swimming! For awhile she was kind of afraid of water, but not anymore! She jumped into the pool to me over and over again.

Kesley just adores her little cousin Dax! He is such a happy baby, and is always smiling. She loves to hold him and make him smile at her.

Here they are swimming in the water. They are little fish. Makayla has done so good swimming this year. She swims by herself without her floaties on and just loves to go under water!!

We went to the Bass pro shop. It was amazing. It makes Cabella's look small. They had a huge aquarium with big fish and sting rays in it, then they have mermaids swim down in it every hour. They loved having the fish swim right up to them.

Doing the shooting range, we had fun hanging out with my parents down there. The kids loved being with grandma and grandpa. We met up with Marsha and Russ their and went back to the timeshare and swam some more. It was nice to start the summer off with trip down to Vegas!
