Happy Fourth of July!!! We had lots of fun over the weekend -- here's what we've been up to!!
We went to North Ogden's parade -- thanks Tyson and Jacque for letting us camp out on your lawn! :)
Look how cute these kids are -- Gray, Brylee and Jackson
Gray liked the trucks, but not so much when the sirens went off.
Dad caught a popsicle -- score!
He was so cute and excited -- he was bouncing up and down!
Gray loved the candy he got -- he carried the sucker and the salt water taffy around.
Daddy was so good to carry him around.
Gray's favorite things: The HORSES...
...and the TRAIN!
Proof for Scott that Jeanne did her appointed job and ran out to get candy for Gray :)
Proof that I was there, too :)
Grayson got bored near the end of the parade, and wandered back into Tyson's back yard -- and I don't blame him -- they have an awesome setup back there! :) Gray loved the playground:
And the big tree he could walk under!
And then he found the best thing EVER -- LIVE CHICKENS!!!!!
Whoa, baby -- he was EXCITED! He loved throwing peas into the cage for them to eat.
But when Tyson brought one of them outside the cage, he kept his distance :)
Later, after we all had our afternoon nap :) we went over to the Barkers' house for a fun BBQ/swim party! Thanks for inviting us!
Gray was a bit apprehensive about being in the water -- not so used to being in pools this big!
Then today we went over to my mom's house for yummy food and hangin' out :)
We had YUMMY home-made chocolate ice cream!!
Steve was so cute to wedge into the little kid chair so Gray didn't feel left out at the kid's table :)
...except then Grayson left STEVE alone at the kid's table.....Steve doesn't look too sad about it, though, does he?! :)
I made these red, white, and blue chocolate-covered strawberries -- festive, aren't they?!
Gray also got to hang out in a pool that was more his size.
He loved the big boat toy!
Everywhere he went, Gray would make us ALL go with him -- he'd go around to everyone, grab our hands, and say "Go! You come, too!" So his Nana decided they were a "parade" and we all marched around the yard for a bit :)
Happy Birthday, America! :) And speaking of BIRTHDAYs, we have a pretty special one coming up in 6 months......
That's right! Baby #2 is on his/her way -- due in mid-January 2011! WAHOO!!!! :oD (and bytheway, this is the exact size of the baby right now -- hence why I am holding the iPad up to my belly) We couldn't be more excited! :)
