Independence Day!

First, I just want to say how grateful we are to be able to live in this great country where we get to enjoy so many freedoms, and how thankful we are for those that have fought to protect those freedoms and this country! We spent our holiday celebrating with lots of family. We headed to the lake late morning with my parents to enjoy some waterskiing. We still are in the process of getting our boat registered and such in Wyoming, so my parents we nice enough to allow us to go with them. Later in the afternoon, we dropped my parents off at the dock so they could head home and we picked up a group of Christian's family and went back out for a couple of hours. After we were done at the lake, we headed to Christian's family's house for a bbq and then shot off some fireworks. It was a great day spent doing to of our favorite things: being with our families and being on the lake!

Carson was quite the ham in the tube this time. He would stand flex and do all sorts of funny poses!

I think Christian was enjoying his taquito a little too much!

When we told the boys that we were going to go to the lake, the first thing Carson asked is if we were going to have chicken legs for lunch out there. I guess he associates going to the lake with having chicken...and they ate it up!!

We saw a bunch of mountain sheep. They were fun to watch as they walked along the canyon walls.

The little kids had a blast with all the bigger kids around to light smoke bombs and snakes with them before we ate and got to the the "bigger" fireworks!
