4th of July

What a busy summer! I have totally been a slacker in the blogger world! We had a great 4th! We spent it in Vernal this time, Mike has never been to my home town for the 4th, so I figured it was time to show him Vernal style! We barbecued, went to the fireworks, the parade, the whole thing. It was a lot of fun! Rachel's reaction to the fireworks was kinda sad, she started bawling and shaking, and she buried her head in my shoulder and would not lift her head to even look! She did like the sparklers though, so we'll take it! She had a blast playing with her cousins, I'm pretty sure that was her favorite part! To end on a high note, lets just say the drive home was less than fun, we're contemplating never going further than 1 hour from Logan again. Three key components included: screaming child with the sun in her face the whole way home (just making her more mad with any attempts to help make it better!), leads to grumpy parents, top it off with getting a ticket like 20 minutes from our house....equals not awesome. It was worth it though, bring on the the 24th! P.S. check out my photo blog if you want, new pics!

Hey Michelle,
Your little girl is darling. I was just going to tell you that my kids hate having the sun in their eyes too. When we drive to Vernal (9-10 hours) we take a blanket and stick in the window. It blocks the sun and the kids actually do much better. I am sure we look like freaks driving down the road with a blanket stuck in the window, but it does help, I promise!

We just went down to K-Mart and you can buy a pack of two window shades for 4 dollars, they have worked great so far, and we can quickly switch them to the other car if we have to or adjust them. I also went online an bought one for the rear window also, for when the kiddos are rear facing.

I love those pictures of the kiddos. Adam sure loved that wagon!
