"He Plays the Violin..." 1776 The Musical

This year we celebrated the 4th of July in Idaho Falls, for the 4th year in a row. We attended the local festivities, the parade and fireworks and we even had a BBQ at my parent's house. While on vacation we also went to Bear World and the kids got to go on rides and see lots of animals. They also had many play dates with their cousins and got to go swimming twice.  Another highlight was Skipper taking the kids for a ride in The Thing. We also accomplished everything on my list that I wanted to do for this trip. Thanks Mom for helping me get everything crossed off my list and for showing us a great time! Until next visit! (Warning: Lots and lots of pictures in this post)

Wow, in only a two week period  Elise and Carter have seen all of their cousins from my side of the family. This includes her two cousins that are coming up for Elise's birthday party this weekend. That means I have seen all 5 of my siblings and all 13 of their children in just two weeks. Pretty neat. I love summer!
