Don't you just love this time of year...when it is warm enough to take a dip in the pool or venture into the freezing Pacific water? We do! We are getting ready to head to Las Vegas for our family 4th of July get together. We love this time of year, being able to spend time with family and friends. I think we look forward to this time of year all year long, being able to jump in Aunt Sue and Uncle Jim's pool, throw squishy water toys as hard as we can at each other, bbq, eat and then watch the fireworks! What a beautiful time of year, plus we get to remember what a blessing it is to live in this free country! I am proud to be an american and I am grateful for the service men and women who keep it free-thanks to Deonna, Uncle Jim and all the others who keep the peace!

Unfortunately we did miss one of our other favorite summertime adventures- our trip to Lake Powell with Scott and Niki Pratt and the whole Smith family. Due to Scott's new job we couldn't make it this year but Scott is already counting down till next year. So we will be there next year!

I hope you all have a great 4th of a July!

Evan is getting so big. I can't wait to see you all - today yipee!!
He didn't look like the sand was very tasty, yuk. Superman, aka Dallin looks like he's enjoying the summer fun too. Looking forward to coming down to visit in a few weeks and enjoy all the fun things to do in San Diego.

Too bad we are in Idaho for the 4th. It would have been fun to see you while you were in Vegas. Have a Happy 4th of July!!!

What cute smiles; and those dimples on Evan are just too much! I am jealous that you live close to beaches. Have fun at with your family and have a great 4th.

Hope you guys have fun in Vegas. I'm sure it will be extra hot. Can't wait to see you again soon.

Peter's favorite thing about the beach is eating sand too - I figure it's probably good for the digestion, right?
