High as a flag on the 4th of July...




If you can tell me what musical the title of this post if from, you get extra points! So, I'm the biggest loser and I'm already home blogging about our 4th of July. Oh well, Gavin is in bed and this is the only time I get!


We started out with sleeping in until 9 and missing the ward breakfast. So we decided we would go to breakfast at Village Inn. We didn't get there until 11:30ish but we still had breakfast and enjoyed it. Then we came home and got ready for our spur of the moment bbq with some of our Smith relatives by doing some yard work. Gavin went down for a nap and I spent the next 4 hours cleaning and whipping up some potato salad, baked beans and Eclair cake (after a quick trip to Wal-mart....). Two of Keith's brothers and one of his sisters and their families came over along with Keith's parents. We enjoyed LOTS of good food and relaxation....well as much relaxing as you can do with 13 kids running around. Gavin wasn't overly happy during this part of the day despite his WONDERFUL 4 hour nap! He did enjoy some of it and even found time to help daddy in the garden.


We drove over by the Riverton City building to watch the fireworks and had a great time there. Gavin was absolutely FASCINATED by the fireworks and kept saying, "WHOA!" It was so cute! I wished I had my video camera. He was darling and so well behaved, thankfully! This 4th of July was so fun with him, to see him get excited about all of the things he was experiencing. He's growing up so much!

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! It's neat as a parent to see your child experience all of the cool things life has to offer. I love the last pic of Gavin too -- it's great!
