Fourth of July

We had a busy and super fun Fourth of July. It started off with a neighbor breakfast. We invited all the neighbors on our street over for breakfast. It was potluck style so we had so much fun and everyone left with a full stomach.

Weston was in charge of making the pancakes and he had a little helper- Walter.

Here are a couple pictures of the neighbors that came

We then went off to the ward BBQ. You may notice in the pictures that Walter and Hunter are wearing the T-shirts that we made earlier in the week. The Primary had planned some games like a potato sack race, three-legged race and water word search.

Then in the evening we got together with our neighbors the Hempy's and went to Stillwell to see the fireworks. We both made make-shift beds in the back of our vans. Hunter and Walter just love spending time with Thomas, Elle and Caroline.

Happy Fourth of July!!

Artists at Work

Today a couple of my neighbors and I got together to have the kids paint Fourth of July T-shirts. The idea came from Family Fun. It was great-the kids had so much fun painting and creating (well my boys were more interested in playing with friends, but I did get some cute pictures of Hunter) It was super easy with the freezer paper, we didn't have to worry about the kids painting outside the lines. We just peeled the paper off and the shirts looked awesome. I hope everyone had fun and that we can do something like this again.

I'm so excited to have them wear their shirts on the Fourth.
