July is my favorite!

July 2010
Its only July 5th and like usual it is my favorite month of the year already. We started July off right by taking the kids to Silverwood for the day. We drove up early in the morning, around 7:30 am, and got there around 11:45. It wasn't the best July weather but we didn't let that bug us. Baker was so excited to get in the water he didn't care what the temperature was. It was a little to cold for Brooklyn though so she happily watched her big bro from the comfort of her stroller. After about an hour of the water park it was off to the rides. Baker wasn't scared of any of the rides that he was tall enough to go on, even the ones mommy was a little worried about. He is such a brave little boy. After a long day at the park we headed back for Grandma and Grandpa Basel's cabin in Hayden for a good nights rest. Then early the next day we were off to head back home to celebrate Tyson and I's 5th year anniversary. We were so tired when we got home though that we didn't celebrate to much more than some popcorn and a movie with the kids.
4th of July is my favorite holiday and this year was exactly why I love it. BBQ, Family and Friends. We started off with the BBQ at my parents and then headed to our house for a couple hours of fireworks. All the kids did amazing and stayed up the whole time. I think we finally went to bed around 11 PM. Well everyone but Brooklyn who passed out around 8:30! Baker is so lucky to have amazing second cousins. All together we had 7 second cousins running around ranging from 8 years old to 5 months old. They all love each other so much!

Brooklyn is already like her mommy! Enjoying the sunshine!

You gotta love this smile! Getting ready for the wave pool!

The kids did NOT want their pictures taken at all but Auntie Kristin didn't give them a choice :)

The only semi good picture I got of my two kids. This is the 10th picture we took and the only one that even kind of turned out.

She is one beautiful girl.

This is the swing set I made my mom and dad put up in their yard!

Baker was a little obsessed with the fireworks. He carried them around everywhere.
