Rain, Hail, and chubby feet!!

I have been reading everyone one else's holiday posts, and figured it was time to get on the ball with my own. We had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend. We went to my parents cabin and loved every minute of just being there with our own little family. On the drive up it started raining, and then to our amazement it started to hail. The hail was piled up all over like snow, it was beautiful. I wish I had taken pictures.

The kids looked super cute in their 4th outfits and all of the little old ladies at the Pine craft fair made a fuss over them. We were planning on going to Payson for the fireworks, but it started pouring and we were worried about hauling all of our little guys out in the rain. They watched fireworks on TV and thought it was great (thank goodness).

So handsome

I love this little girl...she is the perfect combination of sweet and sass!

Our little actress

Randy and the girls just relaxing...and eating Peanut Butter M&M's!

It was so great just to hang out without much to do. We went on a few great walks (and learned that Anna doesnt like to walk, she likes to RUN, and has to beat Hallie...she will finish up her little race by jumping up and down yelling "I won, I won!"). We took the kids to the Pine park, which is full of old school teeter-totters that we had to teach our kids how to use.

One of my favorite parts of the weekend was that everytime we drove anywhere Linc put is chubby little feet in his mouth. The kid is almost 14 months old and he has discovered his feet again.

Yummy!


It was hard to come home (and back to the heat!).
