Happy 4th

We had a great 4th of July weekend! Here's a quick play-by-play:

Saturday afternoon we headed up to my parents' lot in Huntsville. We took the 4-wheelers up towards Monte Cristo and rode around for a few hours, then came back to the lot for some grilled hot dogs!

Miles has his own camp chair. What a stud...

My parents' cabin will sit right on this lot! We can't wait for it to be built...this place will hold many memories for us in the future :)

Sunday night we had a little fireworks show of our own...complete with Flowers and those loud snap things that you throw on the ground. Neil and Brad were our pyro-techs. If you think Washington D.C.'s got a good show, you haven't been to ours...hahahahaha

We spent Sunday night at my parents' house so that we could make it to the Granite Community Parade that their stake puts on every year. Miles loved it, because it's mostly filled with people riding 4-wheelers, tractors, motorcycles...anything that makes a loud noise!

This guy was hilarious!

People are constantly throwing candy to the spectators, which Miles thought was pretty awesome. His little pockets on his cargo shorts were bursting at the seams by the time the parade ended. Here he is going to town on a sucker...

That evening, we went to the Bees game with my folks and Les. It was Miles' first baseball game! The weather was PERFECT...the clouds kept us covered the entire game, and it never rained. We didn't see the fireworks afterwards because Miles was too tired. But we still had a great time!

Go Bees!

Miles is getting so huge! What are you feeding him? You guys seem to have lots of adventures out in the wilderness. So fun.

I love Miles new haircut! He looks so old! Can't wait to see that little guy. And you guys of course. :-)
