Happy Fourth of July!

My posting has finally made it to July! Only a month an a half behind, but hey, we were busy this summer!

We started off the day with a photo shoot at Hayley's house...

Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of four kids? I do... 

Then we headed downtown for the Turlock Parade. It was so much better than last year- more floats, more people watching, more booths at the street fair. Even though it was really hot, it was fun. We ran into so many people I went to high school with that I hadn't talked to in years. Nothing like a small town parade to make you feel like a member of the community!
It was incredibly hot that day so we hunkered down in our air-conditioned house after the parade. we all took a great nap and then played the rest of the afternoon away. We didn't buy any fireworks and didn't have plans to go watch any firework shows because our kids go to bed so early. Even though Travis and I went to bed around 10, we sat up and listened to the neighborhood until around midnight. Thankfully it didn't wake up the kids. Hopefully we'll be able to watch some fireworks next year!
