I woke up early this morning and the house was already at 74 degrees.
Usually I would shout for joy because I'm a 100 degree weather type of girl, but I was worried that you would over heat while running around outside again, so we made our way up the street to Walgreens and bought ourselves a little 16 dollar pool.
Combine that with some freezing hose water and bring on the heat!
So there we sat, you with your chair in the middle of the pool and me lounging in my chair to the side, splashing each other and squealing with delight.
Once our toes turned to raisens, we gathered our stuff, sat on the swing, and fought over towels.
While I fed us yogurt covered pretzels I explained to you that the moon was not an airplane, and then I tried to figure out why the moon was out in the middle of the day... I still don't know.
While we sat there and told each other "this is fun" about 50 times, I thought about how content I was in that perfect moment with you.
I can't wait to do this every day all summer long.
Brooklyn woke up early so we went to our ward breakfast. I think she woke up too early though because she was super grumpy.
By the time we got the the Idaho Falls parade she was happy again.
She loved to wave her flag and eat lots of candy.

We had a few friends over for a bbq in the afternoon.
KURT AND MIKE HAVING A WATER FIGHT.
It was really hot and the whole thing turned into a water fight. I think Christina was the only one who stayed dry.

Then after some naps we picked up some dinner and headed to the Green Belt to await the firework show.
CHRISTINA, LORI, BROOKLYN, AND KURT DURING THE FIREWORKS.
The fireworks were amazing as always. Brooklyn didn't mind the loud booms too much but half way through she started telling me "Done. Done. Done." I told it wasn't even close to being done, so she just cuddled up with you.
I love the fourth of July so much! I am so proud to live in this country.
