4th and 25th of July

Oh Hey there!  It's sure been awhile.  It might take all month to catch up on the summer happenings, but here is a snapshot from the 4th and 25th ;) of July!

The fourth of July was a lot of fun!  It is tradition that we go to the Murray Fourth of July parade and so we did. This is Ty with his cousin Abi.  They are best buds.  They both really enjoyed the parade.  I was sad that I could not run in the race due to my surgery but it was fun watching the runners and watching the parade. 

That weekend we went on a hike up Big Cottonwood Cannon.  Here we are in our summer clothes with snow behind us.  The fun part about all of this was that we had to manuever our stroller over this snow in flip flops.  Let's just say we were sliding all of the place and Ty was screaming.  Only in Utah can you have such beautiful weather and snow in July.  The hike was really fun, Ty watched the ducks and watched people fish.

We also went to the West Jordan Fair.  Ty rode a horse and was not to fond of it at all.  However Ty loves trucks so seeing all these trucks made his day.  The Truck behind us is the one that transports all of those scary carnival rides to and from.  Sorry Ty you won't be going on those anyday soon, if you ever get to go on them. 
We also went to the Murray Fun Days that afternoon.  Ty loved watching the magician and playing in the bounce house.  But I'd have to say his favorite part was eating popcorn as you can see in the picture above.  We had a fun time with Jp, Steph and Abi. 

On the morning of the 25th my sister-in-law Kim, and my cousin, Tara all ran the Desert News 10k.  It was a lot of fun and I'm glad I had people to run it with.  Later that day we went boating with my family.  Ty was not happy about being in the boat at first but he warmed up real quick and started loving swimming!

Later that night we went to Butlerville days.  Ty was a chicken and refused to go in any of the bounce houses even though he loved them on the Fourth of July.  We sat in the rain and waited for the fireworks to start.

Ty really didn't care about the rain because he was eating cotton candy.  We decided we had had enough of the rain and were going to go watch fireworks in our car.

As we began to walk to our car the fireworks started so we sat on the curb and watched them.  Ty loved them and it was the best firework show I have seen in a very long time!
