Block Party

Every year we go to the Freeman Family block party. It's a great idea and so much fun to get to get to know your neighbors better! The freeman family provides hot dogs and hamburgers and and all the family's meet in there front yard and bring a side dish to share, along with a few fireworks. This year we had 2 pinatas, one for the kids, and one for the dads. They also put together a few games from the TV show Minute to win it.
Beth got chosen to participate in the Skittle sorting game, and she would have done really well if she didn't have Riley run up to her and start trying to eat all the candy! :) little stinker

This is Cam getting an empty tissue box tied around his waist to fill with ping pong balls. The object is to try and shake all the balls out of the box before the minute is up.
I love that Cam is such a good sport about things and went and had fun with it!

After the games were over we set up the fireworks. These 3 were working on this for a good 15-20 minutes! They set them up to outline a U :) Just a little BYU and U of U rivalry fun.
All lined up to watch the show

*4th of July*

We started off our 4th of July playing at the park! Cohen and Riley loved flying the kite, but the most amusing part was when they lost interest and let go so Cam, Cory, or Grampy had to chase after it. Pretty funny! Then we had a Delicious BBQ for dinner over at the Robins, yum!

Cohen and Riley were so excited to watch the fireworks! This year it was so fun to watch Cohen's reaction, he LOVED it!
Fireworks just look better when you do them off a latter.. They really got them going too, trying to do 3 or 4 at a time! The show lasted about 2 hours!
Cory thought it would be a good idea to put some water in the garbage can to throw the fireworks into while they were still hot...and it might have been a good idea if he remembered the hose was on and didn't fill the garbage can all the way up with water! It took Cam, Cory, and Grampy to empty it!
Cory, Grampy, Beth, Riley, Ginger, and Cohen
To end the night we all did some sparklers, no 4th of July celebration is complete without them!

Riverton Days

Saturday we decided to spend the day at Riverton Park and enjoy the carnival and later the fireworks. Normally we go to Sugar House Park for the fireworks, but decided that Riverton days would be better for Cohen. He loved it! He would have stayed in this bounce house all day and played basketball if we would have let him!
Grammy and Aunt Chanelle even came and spent the day with us, Cohen loved the extra attention!

Getting Cohen's face painted for the first time.

His favorite rides were the train and the cars

Of course he loved the free ball mommy got him, he had to carry it around with him all day...

~ Beautiful sunset~

Cam & Chanelle on the Ferris Wheel

Watching the fireworks, Cohen loved it this year!

Kourtnee and her little family joined us to watch fireworks

Cohen was so tired

It was such a great day, but by the end we were all exhausted!
