4th of July

The weekend of the 4th we celebrated with...you guessed it...our 8am church. {which will be changing to 11:00  soon!} Actually BEFORE church we found this on our Kitchen Table:
Kaylea had set her alarm clock for 6 am on Saturday night & awoke early to make us this 4th of July sign. She drew bubble letters, cute them out & then colored each one red, white & blue. Then she decorated with anything patriotic she could find & made a starburst/chocolate creation as well. It melted my heart that she would get up early to make this SURPRISE for our family.
It happened to be Fast & Testimony Meeting that Sunday. It was neat to hear so many stories & testimonies from other people who love our Country...And to remember that God truly did create this country so that the Gospel could again be restored on it...What other place could it ever occur? I even walked up to the stand & bore my testimony of the Holy Ghost (to the large crowd that day) & told of one special experience that had happened to me recently. It was a wonderful meeting that day.
Later that evening we had Dinner at my parents, Watched a Movie, Gabbed & Played a little Foos-ball:
Here are some cute giggles from Jax:

On our way home back to QC, we thought we'd find some fireworks as we drove. We pulled over for a while trying to find the best spots, but as we pulled into our own driveway we realized we just might never again have to go any further than our own backyard!
Being that the 4th was on the Sabbath, we waited till Monday to Par-tay. We swam for a few hours & the kids had a blast with their Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles. Then it was back to house for a BBQ & later on we went to see Toy Story 3!
Grandpa can always get Jax smiling
Gotta love that one is sound asleep & one is being Mr. Grumpy-Gills
Can't they ever just all cooperate at the same time??
(Tim was not there as he was taking advantage of the holiday to work hard for our family.)

in deep thought as he squats......uh oh-you know what that means!
Dramatic!

The kids loved getting thrown by Uncle Tommy
