4th of July 2009

This year we packed up the van with the 3 kids, 2 dogs, and 1 Grandma and headed down to Manti to spend the holiday with Garrett's family. Saturday morning I got up and ran in the Freedom Festival 5K. Riley got up and came to cheer me on.:)

Then we went down to the park for the town pancake breakfast.

Next we spent a few hours at the park for the carnival. There were all sorts of booths and fun activities for the kids.

Pony rides:

A highlight of the day was when our cousin Kelsie was put in the dunking booth because she was "Miss Liberty" royalty this year. Cole made sure he was first in line to knock her down and Riley knocked her down too.

Next we were off to beat the heat at the swimming pool.

After a delicious BBQ at Garrett's sister's house, we watched the fireworks go off right above the Manti temple. Mallory was sound asleep but Macy sure loved watching her first fireworks.

What a great trip and fun weekend with family!

Black Belt!!!

Riley earned his 1st degree BLACK BELT today. He has been taking Tae Kwon Do since he was five. We are so proud of his hard work and commitment all this time. What an accomplishment! I was also so touched by all the support we received from family today. It meant so much to us to have everyone there to support Riley. Thanks to everyone who took time out of there Saturday to be there. :) What a great day. Congratulations, Riley!

We had a wonderful Easter. We loved spending time with both sides of our family. We had a fun Easter egg hunt and took lots of family pictures. It was just great to be together with people we love on a beautiful Spring day!
