4th of July Fun!

We had a great time this year for the 4th. Brad's sister Carrie and her two girls came to stay with us for a couple days (but left on the 4th to spend time with the other side of their family). Grandma and Deloy were here too. We had such a great time together. We played at the Thanksgiving Point children's gardens (I forgot my camera), played baseball at the park, Cafe Rio (of course) and enjoyed BBQs with family. We enjoyed a fun fireworks show to top off the night.

Ready for the day! Cali, Coleman, Madi, and Bridger in their red, white and blue!

Deloy reading a book to Bridger...and Grandma-

We had a BBQ with Aunt Alice and Uncle Steve's family at their home in Alpine-

Elizabeth and Cannon-

We had to snap some pictures in front of Alice's beautiful flower pots!

Fireworks at Thanksgiving Point-


Grandma's tradition--flag shirts from Old Navy! Thanks Grandma!

It was a long day for our littlest guy! Cannon was exhausted!

Those pictures are very cute. I have to admit 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love how it is so family oriented. I especially love the picture of Bridger in front of the flowers... what a sweet little smile. :) I love your family, sis!

I can't sleep so I thought I would check in on your blog to see what is new. Your little boys are seriously the cutest little guys I have ever seen. What a cute family and good Mom you are!

I love the matching shirts! I think it is so awesome how much your boys still get to see their cousins who live out of state! Beth is really good about visiting her grandsons (and you and Brad)! Looks like you had a fun 4th! Love you.

Dear Melanie,
Just wanted to tell you that I have been looking at recipes for my dad to cook since my mom is has been at work. Your Sisters' Cafe blog has been a lot of help. Thanks!! We just tried your chicken salad with mango and cashews recipe and absolutely loved it. It put a smile on my tired mother's face. :)
Love, Carly
Excited to see Tanner tomorrow at grandma's!
