July 4, 2015. Happy Independence Day!

We had a great 4th of July this year! We partook of all that the lovely town of Hurricane had to offer, starting with a parade bright and early before it got too hot! It was a great parade. Not too long, and not too short, and plenty of candy!! After the parade we took the kids to the park where they played games and bounced in the bounce houses. Later that night we had some friends over for a BBQ where we roasted hot dogs over our new fire pit! Fun fun! And the night ended with a beautiful sunset and fireworks for the older kids! I'm so grateful for this country that we have to live in and all the freedoms that we have.

June 2, 2015. Last day of school!

Well it wasn't really the last day of school, but our kids didn't actually go to school on the last day of the year and the last day they did go was field day so they wore swim suites, so these pictures were taken three days before school ended!

I'm so proud of my kiddos this year. They all had a great year in school this year. It wasn't always easy,  and it wasn't always fun, but they all gave 100% all year long! I have such great and smart kids. I love them!

As per tradition, my first and last day of school comparison for the 2014-2015 school year:

And one of this cute girl because she wanted a picture too, and who can resist this cuteness!
