Happy 4th of July Weekend

Our 4th of July weekend was busy... but lots of fun. Harrison's Mom came into town for the weekend and it was so much fun spending time with her. We spent the 3rd at Nick and Joy's house (Harrison's brother). We BBQ'd some hamburgers and lit off some fireworks for the kids before bedtime. It was lots of fun.

Eli helped Nick light the firework and then ran away so he would be safe from the sparks! What a good listener he is!

Before we BBQ'd we spent some time at the pool. It was lots of fun to watch the kids swim and have a good time. Harrison had fun too... see!
Eli was getting so brave! He dunked his head under the water a few times. What a big boy he is becoming! Maybe this is a prequel to an Olympic swimming career.
Gabby is so cute! It was her first time in the pool! Her swimming suit that Nana bought her is so adorable! She seemed to really enjoy the water. She loved kicking her legs.

I had to work 4th of July night. Sad... I know. I didn't see a single firework that night. Oh well. Saturday (the 5th) there was a small car show at The Freedom Festival here in Provo. The car show was just a few blocks from the house. This picture is in front of a 1968 Chevy Camaro. It is one of the sexiest cars on the face of the planet... I think.
After the car show we went to the mall and look at what we saw! A new Challenger! We have never seen one other than in magazines and on billboards. It was an awesome car. So, we took some pictures of it!

The weekend was so much fun! I am so thankful for the freedoms that I enjoy here in America.
