fallen soldier

Here's a little dialogue from our house this morning:

Me: Did you put a soda in the freezer?

Trav: Ummmm...

Me: You know that soda explodes when it freezes, right?

Trav: Ummmm... ooops...

Yadda, yadda, yadda...had a real good reason to clean out the freezer and ice tray this morning.

it was independence day

We had a pretty fun 4th and had great weather to go with it! Could you ask for anything better? We started off our morning by going to the Cherry Days parade in North Ogden. I don't think I've missed a single one in all my years. It was overcast and in the low 70's...perfect parade weather.

so excited... obviously too excited for a picture with mom it's a bird, it's a plane, it's the 419th fighter wing checking out the planes getting in a prime candy grabbing position myka got scared by the clowns (don't blame her!) hey, roger... thought you hated parades??? myka retired from the street after the clown incident myka and grammy laurie candy grabbers cute cousins
We took the kids to see Ice Age. I think this is the 500th Ice Age movie. Wondering how many more times they're going to attempt that one??? We spent the later afternoon and evening swimming at the Thompsons'. The kids always have lots of fun when we go swimming. Myka was so brave and let her daddy jump off the top of the rock with her. She wanted to do it over and over!

myka wearing the gobble-gobbles (myka for goggles)and a much too small swimsuit me and my baby hanging in the hot tub tilt your head to watch cuz i don't know how to rotate it...

And I won't ever be the same...
