More 4th of July

After all the 4th of July celebrations we had a BIG family reunion with Anthony's dad's side of the family. There were a lot of people there, most of which I don't know but we had a great time. The kids got to ride horses, eat all the snow cones and cotton candy they wanted. I actually lost count of the number of times my kids got in line. They played on a huge water slide, and had lots of games to play. There was a big water fight that nobody was left out of. I thought maybe they'd leave me alone being big and pregnant, but not even that keeps you safe in this family. I'll admit I am not a good sport when it comes to water fights. Having cold water thrown on me is not my idea of fun, but I can't complain. They really did get everyone! One of the last things we did was visit the grave where Anthony's grandma is buried. This is always very emotional for all of us. My kids all have some memories of her, and they all have a special relationship to her and to Grandpa Marshall. Even Tyler who only met Grandma when he was two weeks old talks about her, and knows he has a special blanket that she made him before she died. We had a fun trip. I am so glad my kids have so much fun with their cousins. We wish we lived closer, and could see them more often!

Here we are at the fireworks. This really is the best fireworks show I've seen. Anthony use to tell me how good they were, but I thought whatever it's Idaho Falls. But you know they really are amazing!!

These two boys are buddies!
