4th of July

Brent and I had the opportunity to go home for the 4th. My brother and his family from Washington come down also. We really a had a great time. My mom bought some fireworks and we set them off on the 3rd. But we had extras to do on the 4th also. We went to the parade in Rupert and then we just hung out and had a BBQ and went boating the rest of the day. It was really fun.

Here is a picture of my nephew and nieces Brogan, Ava and Vy. These kids make me laugh so hard. Brogan and Ava are 3 and a half and they are also just a few weeks apart and Vy is 6. In this picture they are patiently waiting for the "Little kids fireworks"
Here is a picture of the boat. We were a little hesitant to take it out on the 4th because it is so busy. We decided to go for a ride. We all go loaded and we started to leak oil like crazy...come to find out we didn't have the oil filter on correctly. We got it fixed and added more oil to the boat and we were on our merry way. We were out and about looking at some new houses and luckily we were going slower and we glazed over a sand bar. It didn't do anything to the boat but it defiantly slowed the boat down! Haha good thing that the kids were wearing life jackets and that Aunt Joni was on the look out to grab one kid from flying out!
Here are the "little kids fireworks" going off on the putting green at my mom's house.
Here is a back picture of Ava and Vy. Ava had her arm around Vy. I thought it was just darling! Ava doesn't get to see her cousins Vy and Bo bo very often...but you can tell that she misses them very much!

Here is a picture that I took of me and Brent. He went and helped his dad move water on his farm during the day on the 4th. Boy was I excited to see him return! We had a great night by building a fire and roasting marshmallows and watching the neighbors fireworks show and telling funny stories with my family about when we were kids!
