Happy 4th of July

The 4th of July weekend was one non-stop party after another every day again this year, which makes for a fun weekend! We love it!

Lyla was put in the hospital over the weekend with another respiratory infection sort of stuff so our family picture this year was taken at the hospital, yahoo! I was sad she wasn't with us for the holiday but we took turns sitting with her and still enjoying the festivities with the other kids and family!

The nurse was so kind to let me change her into her 4th of July outfit at least for a photo or two!

The dudes and Sam had nearly matching shirts!

Lucy and Nora hanging out together!

The girls all ended up wearing some sort of blue striped shirts, not planned, so we had to get a photo!

Mikayla and Guy, Griffin and Ava chillin' on the couch outside to watch the fireworks!

4th of July Parade

I took the kids to the parade while Chris sat with Lyla since she was in the hospital. It was a bummer that we weren't all together! But nevertheless we all still enjoyed the parade!

It was fun to catch up and see Charakie and the kids visiting here from out of town now that they moved last year! They're so kind every year to come let us sit and watch the parade!

Stadium Fireworks

We went down to Provo High field again this year to play around and watch the big fireworks from the stadium!

Ava asked me, "Mom, now why do we like fireworks?" She's not much for the noise!

Griffin just really loves when someone tries to give him a hug or kiss. Not really, as you can see he gets all embarrassed and shy

Freedom Festival Hot Air Balloons

This year we woke the kids up bright and early to meet everyone to watch the balloons take off. It was really fun and colorful to see them all in the sky!

4th of July Festivities

cousin Samson and Lyla. They weren't too sure about why the other was on their chair

I love that Lyla crosses her feet whenever she sits now!

That's pretty much what we've been up to this summer most days!
