4th of July

For the 4th of July this year we decided to try something a little different.  We found a small town that was holding a festival and went early so that we could find a good parking spot.  We walked over to the park in Smyrna and checked out all of the booths.  After deciding which place we each wanted to eat at, we grabbed our food and sat in the grass and ate together.  After that the kids wanted to play on the swings and run around the park.  As it began to get dark we headed back to the car with a quick pit stop to buy a pizza, some kettle corn, a few slushies, and cotton candy to fortify us through the wait.  The kids all bought themselves light sticks from the vendors and we settled down to wait for the show to begin.  The boys ran around with their light sticks having sword fights and playing with all of the other kids in the area.  The fireworks show was amazing and we had a front row seat.  After they ended we all packed back into the car and headed home.  It was a super fun adventure.

These events actually happened last August and September...almost an entire year ago.  The pictures, however, were on Jared's phone and I had never seen them before until the other day Jared handed me a flash drive with a bunch of older pictures on it.  I have a lot of catching up to do!

Easter Egg Hunt

Every year our city and one of the local churches puts on a great big egg hunt for the community.  This is the first year that it was at this new park, however, so things were very different.  There were still bounce houses, a petting zoo, a scavenger hunt and games but the hunt was on a level football field so the actual hunt was not quite as egg-citing as usual.  It was pretty windy but we all had a ton of fun anyway.

Snow Day!

Visit to Idaho

Jared's father passed away soon after Christmas and we headed up to Idaho again for his funeral.  Unfortunately, I had Bronchitis and so I was not my usual picture snapping happy self.  These are the only pictures I got while we were there.  It was a really beautiful / funny funeral.  It was both a very sad time saying goodbye to Dad/Grandpa.  But it was also fun to see everyone again so soon.  The kids loved hanging out with their cousins and spent a lot of time playing outside in the snow.  Jared got to spend a lot of time with his siblings and his mother which was good.
