Fun trip with Cousin Renee

My cousin Renee is a missionary and often comes by on quick trips to visit us when she is in the US. This summer she was able to come for less than 24 hours, but the kids and I dragged her out to Garden of the Gods for a little walk around in the nice weather. (Don't worry we didn't have to twist her arm too hard) We had a blast of course, as we always do when she comes to visit.

They are off!!

They went up hills, I did not!! I had a giant baby on my back.

Renee trying to navigate them down.

He found a stop sign.

And rocks, he LOVES rocks!

4TH of July

We spend most of the day on the Fourth at our church. They had a big grand opening for the park they built next door and had all kinds of activities for the kids to do that day. They did horse back riding, played Gaga ball, kickball, had face painting, snow cones and much more. They even had a dessert making contest (Hallie and I won second place for cookies/bars!!) Everyone had so much fun. After that we went back to our house and did some fireworks with friends. A perk of not living in city limits is we can finally have fireworks!

Eating their snow cones and sharing.

Goofy boy.

Everyone loved the sparklers.

Showing me his "Cheese"

How many people does it take to light a firework??

The Tank firework- the boys like this one.

One of the pretty fountains we got.

This picture is blurry but it makes me laugh.

Searching for more unused sparklers cause they cant all be gone!
