The 4th

tThe Fourth of July weekend was great! My family came down from Idaho to spend it with us. Any time my mom comes down I try to get a date with Josh out of the visit. I barely am able to pump any extra milk than Isaac eats, so I pumped milk every night for a week and put it in the freezer just so that Josh and I could go out. Mom and Dad willingly took Isaac for the evening. Josh and I went and saw "Singing in the Rain." It was an absolutely phenomenal production done by the Hale Center Theater in Orem. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it!

The next day was the fourth. Josh's family tradition is to get everyone together for a big bbq. The kids put on a little production for us(this was of their own choosing...they memomrized their parts and everything on their own!) Have any of you seen the little animated cartoon right before "The Incredibles?" They did that little Jackelope seen for us. It was SO cute! Afterwords everyone heads over by the Stadium of fire. There is a big road there that they block off and the kids play in the road while the adults just sit and chat. I love going every year. And then of course there are the fire works. My favorite part is the finale. There are so many fireworks going off that you can feel them in your chest. Combine that with a beautiful sleeping baby and a handsome husband and you have "the stuff that movies are made of!" And yes, Isaac slept through the whole thing. I couldn't believe it! I guess I have a more of a deep sleeper than I thought I did.

Here is Isaac with my parents. Isaac is their first grandbaby. They are very doting grandparents! =0)

We put Isaac into the pool. He wasn't sure what he thought of it. This was the happiest picture we were able to take! But even when he is sad he still looks SO cute!

My sister-in-law, Katherine, got all of the new babies together on a blanket and climbed up in a tree to take birds-eye-view pictures of them! It was SO cute. These four were all born within 2 months of eachother! Can you find Isaac? ;-)

Katherine you're amazing!(Notice me off to the right pigging out as I watch the others block the shade with a blanket...oh and Ashton got really tall for being only one!)

My Dad, brother, and Josh built shelves in our garage over the weekend! Hurray for shelves in the garage! "Happy thought indeed!"(Name that movie!)
