The 4th of July started bright and early for Glen Allen as he enjoyed 9 holes of golf in the hot Arizona heat while I took the boys to the ward pancake breakfast and parade. The kids were supposed to decorate their bikes of scooters for the parade but we didn't have enough time so we just took Glen's scooter for sure riding pleasure. When it came time for the parade, they lined all the kids up in a single file line for the parents viewing pleasure, but Glen didn't like the idea of being behind someone. He flew past everyone like he was riding for a gold medal! When it came time for the prizes for the best decorated bike, Glen was devistated! He didn't understand how he didn't win a prize when he "won the race"! Funny kid! After the breakfast, as if we were not already water logged enough from the night before, we went back to my mother-in-laws to swim with our friends the Harrolds. We love them! They are a blast to hang out with!
Later on that evening we went with our friends the Coopers and the Harrolds to Rawhide. (Thanks again Ryan and Tiffany!) We had never thought about doing anything besides sitting in my mother-in-laws backyard watching the fireworks from Rockin' R Ranch so we were excited to try something new. Rawhide was a blast! We went to the gun shows (which neither of the boys liked), panned for gold, went to the petting zoo and then got ready for the firework show. The fireworks were GREAT and the boys LOVED them! All in all, it was yet another great 4th of July, despite the HEAT!
This kid is so funny sometimes! He was constantly saying "milk" the whole night which means he wanted a drink. After the bottle was empty it immediately became the latest source of entertainment as we waited for the firework show to start.
Glen Allen always complains about how I don't have any pictures of me on the blog.... so honey... this one is for you! I love you!

My brother-in-law Colter and my nephew Clayton share a birthday on July 3rd, so every year we get an extra long 4th of July celebration! The weekend started with a swimming party and BBQ at nana's awesome pool.
Baby pools are the greatest invention in the world!
Jaxon and Weston chowing down on some good BBQ cookin'!
