24th Fun

Jeff spent a good part of the day mudding and sanding our basement while the kids and I did stuff around the house. Later, though, I took Lyndsi out school shopping. She is growing up and had a lot of fun trying on things and picking out some new things for school. The best deals (and only place we bought stuff) were found at Mervyns. For dinner, we all congregated at my moms for a big family BBQ and some swimming for the kids. It was so nice to just relax and visit. Hot topics were Mexico, where the majority of the fam just returned from vacation, and the Twilight series and all the speculation. The little kids had a blast in the swimming pool and slip 'n slide. After all that we moved the party to my aunts for fireworks which the kids begged to go see. (We were going to just go home. We were tired.) We gave into their wishes and did they stop playing with cousins long enough to watch the fireworks? Not a chance. Oh well. Maybe next year. :)
Other 24th fun include:
Participating in the Days of 47' Children's Parade

Meeting Darth Vader and Storm Troopers at the family festival after the parade

And seeing the floats for free, inside, in the air-conditioning. Wahoo! Oh-and getting faces painted.

I still can't believe how much your kids have grown... McKay was still just a baby!! Wow, time sure does fly. Looks like you guys are doing good!

Sophie looks so cute in her swim suit.
Your picture of the float looks really nice. I think you'll just have to e-mail me a copy so I can scrapbook it.
