The 4th

We had a fun 4th of July. The morning was relaxing and the afternoon was filled with fun. We went to the Beckstroms for a barbecue and swimming. There was so much eating and swimming the everyone was exhausted. The only bummer about this year was the the fireworks were not being held at the park near my parents house. Joseph really wanted to see fireworks do we decided to go down to the mall and watch them there. We parked a few blocks away at my sisters house and planed to walk down. As we were walking we saw people with chair on the bridge above the street right by my sisters house. We went over there and decided it was a lot easier and faster to watch them from there. It was a little farther away but was nice because it wasn't so loud fort he kids. Bridget and Ethan said a lot of wows, which was good enough for me. We got home so late and boy were they tired.

Beach Time

After our excursion to Pyramid Lake we found that the kids love the water. So we went home washed swimsuits and set out the next day for the beach. It was so much fun. The weather was great and the kids had a blast. They wanted to spend most of the time running into the waves. They were crazy! We wad so mush fun that we went back two more time that week. This is something I could get used to.

Bridget was running so fast I could barley get her in the picture.

Lake Pyramid

A few weeks a go we kicked off the summer activities with a day trip up to Pyramid Lake to take out the Sea-Dos. They had a beach that was fixed up last year so we decided to take the kids an have a fun day playing in the water. Well, the beach was a bit grubby and the shallow water had a lot of green algae all over the place. So it wasn't as nice as we expected. That didn't stop Ethan and Bridget at all. They had a great time and both got to go on the beat for the first time! I was way to nervous to take them myself so Joseph took Ethan and Kimberly took Bridget.
