July Festivities

We started out with a family dinner at our home on July 12 with Rob's mom, Aunt, and lots of family.
This is the tent trailer we bought for camping excursions. It will be tons of fun. It was built in 1960. We'll take it camping this next weekend.

July 17th was Roaring Rapids day in Boise. This was a family get together with Rob's dad. The kids really had a good time. Like last year, Isaac just loved the "ring around the roises" slide as he called it.

Cosette's butterfly from the Pioneer Day festivities.

We walked...and ran...in the parade here in Pocatello. The kids were great, even in the heat. Ethan sat in the cart the whole time. Isaac rode most of the way. The one time I tried letting him throw candy from the road, we ended up a whole parade entry behind. When he realized he was actually sitting on the candy and could throw it from the handcart, he was excited.

Cosette did a great job in the parade. She walked for 3/4 of it throwing candy out of her basket she just had to have. Before we left in the morning, we picked some wildflowers to put in her basket (she'd seen a picture of pioneer kids and the little girl had flowers in her basket)

In all, it's been quite a fun couple of weeks.

What a wonderful month. I loved the picnic at your house. Such a beautiful yard, just a continuation of the park. We loved the kids at Janet's house. they are growing way to fast and are so smart. The boys remind me of Rob as a kid. A mind of their own and stubborn. i love it.
