4th, again!

(out of order) After the dinner we all stayed at the church and watched the city's fireworks. Which was perfect because we were a few blocks from the fireworks, so there was very little noise, but the view was amazing! Zach loved the fireworks, just like the rodeo he was a spas, he learend to say, "POP, and Boom!" He was pooped by the time we left!

The Wards in AZ got together and had a great BBQ, and kids parade around the church house, I totally remember doing this as a kid, so I was very excited! We decorated scooters, and headed out!

Brady had to wait for the pledge of allegiance, and raising of the flag. He popped 4 of his balloons in the process.

And yes, I was part of the parade, I pulled Brady the last lenght of the square!

Thanks to Jeremy and Emily for letting us stay with them, we had such a great time! (minus the not sleeping, but thats my kids' fault)!

4th, still...

Brady figured out how to stick his Flags in his hat, which was pretty creative I thought!

Zachine really liked the animals in the parade, and he also waved his flag quite a bit!

Who is that?? You are correct, Senator McCain!! And guess what? I SHOOK HIS HAND!!! It was like meeting a celebraty. and also the closest I am sure, I will ever get to someone who was almost in the White House... I was a little overly excited, too bad Jeff missed getting ME in the shot!

The only down side was that there weren't any floats, and there was no candy!!! WHAT!!??

4th of July and Senator Mccain

Prescott Arizona is a beautiful little town, and where we spent the 4th this year, with Jeff's Brother Jeremy and his family. I was so much fun! We went the the Rodeo, half of us left early, kids, ya know! But the boys liked what they did see.

When the horses first came out Zach about died he was so excited! He screamed, jumped up and down and clapped and pointed like a crazy person! Oh, and he attacked Jer's head, I guess it was in the way! Sorry Jer!

We went on a hike, which was beautiful. Brady loved it until he faked ( i think ) a tummy ache on the way out. Lucky his dad is so nice and carried him!

There was a couple in the hike with metal detectors, they had found a bunch of bullet shells, and let the kids choose one each, thanks!

Gracie, Brady, and Whitney, mountain climbers extraordinaires!
