Family, Fun, Food and Fireworks!

Last weekend we all packed up and went to Fillmore to spend the 4th of July with Rob's family. Rob's Grandpa Max was the Grand Marshall of the parade and most of the family was there. We had so much fun and ate TONS of FABULOUS food!

My kids had a great time playing with all their cousins and riding bikes and squirting each other with squirt guns. The adults had a great time hanging out with each other.

I took 2 vacation days, so we went up Thursday and got all unpacked. Friday morning we got up and headed to Delta for a quick trip so Rob could check out the air conditioning in my moms truck. We got back to Fillmore before lunch. After lunch we decorated the kids bikes and scooters for the kids parade that evening.

Saturday was pretty packed, but a ton of fun. I was in charge of Breakfast that morning so Rob and I got everything put out and cleaned up. After that was the parade, which was a ton of fun. I don't think I have ever seen that much candy at a parade. The kids had a blast chasing after the candy and getting squirted with water guns. After lunch Rob and I took the kids to the park to check out the booths and games there. The kids each got to ride the big slide and then Jordyn and Si both got dunked in the dunk tank. After the park we watched the Talent Show that Jordyn and Skylar put together. It was so fun! Jordyn even got up there and sang a song all by herself. I was pretty impressed!! That afternoon the kids and I took a little nap and then it was off to the fireworks. They were great! Max was pretty scared of them, but everyone else liked them. We were a bit too close cuz about halfway through the wind shifted and debris and coals (not hot) started falling on us. Right at the end it started raining, so we hightailed it out of there!

Sunday morning we started to pack up and then hung out til lunch/dinner was ready. After eating we headed home :(

Here are some pictures
