Fresh Air, Freedom, and Fun

We had so much fun this weekend! We're all exhausted, but it was worth it. Saturday afternoon, we went to the Evanston festivities and the boys got to go on some rides.

Then we came home for naps and dinner before we loaded up our fireworks and headed to out claim our space.

Right after getting to our parking lot of choice, I fed and changed Addie and she fell asleep!! She slept through all of it, which was really nice for me. The big boys had a blast (no pun intended!) shooting off all of the fireworks. The little boys thought it was so much fun to watch, and even got to do sparklers! Us girls got to do sparklers too, box after box. And believe it or not, it was really fun! We got some pretty cool pictures...on their cameras, mine ran out of battery.

Sunday we went up to Grandma Great's trailer. We went to the Provo River Falls, had hot dogs, played games, sang songs, built a teepee, lounged by the fire, made s'mores, saw deer, and went to sleep.

Monday, we hung out for a little bit, then packed up camp and came back to our house to clean ourselves up and celebrate Colson's b-day. He turned 4!

Wow you guys had a super fun weekend it looks like. I bet it is so fun to be close to your sisters so you can get the little cousins together to play and celebrate holidays. I love the small town feel of Evanston too. I'm growing to like the laid back life of the country and less people than where we grew up. How about you guys?
