July: Holidays and Reunions

July sure was one busy month for our family.  At the beginning of the month we all enjoyed the fireworks.  Olivia especially enjoyed playing with everyone from the family.  The fireworks did make her nervous, but as long as she had her dad to her, she was ok.  JD on the other hand was just mesmerized by them.  He didn't like me covering up his ears and was constantly pulling them off.  For the rest of the month, and even now, Olivia is constantly talking about the fireworks.

At the end of the month most of my family came together for a family reunion.  It was so much fun letting Olivia play and get to know her cousins, especially her cousins from Canada.  We enjoyed walking along the Logan River by Bonnie's house, a fireworks show in Grandma and Grandpa's backyard, a 4th of July Parade, Swimming, a hike to the Wind Caves and some good ol' bonding time at Grandma and Grandpa's.  It was a fun filled couple of days and we were so sad to see everyone go, but before everyone left we were able to share some news with everyone.

Frankie finally got a job in a management position!  We are so excited for him and the new possibilities that lie right before him.

The walk along the river was beautiful for the adults to look at and fun for the kids to play by

The hike was fun, but the kids sure did get tired
