July so far.....

We've been playing Rock Band as a family.

It is a blast even though we seriously hoover in the singing dept.
I tried to post a video but you will be happy to know it didn't download right. LOL

I made a bunch more bookbags (AKA scripture totes..whatever)
for birthday gifts for the primary kids.

We drove the Ward float in the annual 4th of July Parade.

Joshua was in the parade too. The new mural in town depicts
the 4th of July Parade 100 years ago. Joshua was asked to "re-enact" that parade and making the mural "come to life" so to speak. He was the drummer.

I didn't get a pic of him since I was in the parade myself.

I suppose it was fun to be in the parade, but I think I like watching it better .

Jared being his normal 4th of July pyromaniac self. He just got done lighting our
campfire (yeah it's in our back-yard, pretty cool that I can roast weiners or marshmallows whenever I choose) with a gallon of gasoline...the dorkus.

A pic of our garden. I keep the garden pretty much weed free, but I hadn't noticedweeds out in front there until I saw them in the picture...EEK. My obsessive self went and plucked them right away...almost giving myself heat stroke. (dang OCD)

And we got a big 4th of July bonus......

On the 5th, we went to the Rodeo.

They have the pig catching contest for the kiddos.

None of our kids won, but one of our friends kids did and we
bought her pig for 20 bucks since they had no where to keep it.

So now we will have bacon with our eggs.

The END.

Hee! The End!

Those are cute bags. My garden is crying out for some OCD attention. Any time you want to stop by and whip it into shape, you're welcome to.

the END that's funny - I didn't get it till Denise said something! LOL!

Those bags ARE cute! You've got lots of energy to do stuff of that nature - oh - it's probably even funner to do when you get reimbursed huh?

What a dang fun July you're having so far. I love that country feel around the 4th. It's like straight out of a movie with parades and pigs. Cool.
