4th of July Weekend

We had a nice quiet 4th of July.  We spent the day at home, working on the house and watching Star Wars.  We lit off a few fireworks in front of the house, but went to bed pretty early.

The 5th of July was a whirl wind of a day.  We left the house in our truck, pulling our tractor, in our church clothes, with our guns. You know your in for an exciting day, when it starts like that!

Our first stop was a baptism, followed by a family luncheon.  Next we stopped in at Shane's parent's house to change and drop off the tractor.

Then is was up to the Gundersen property for skeet shooting.

 The Gundersen men step up to the line.

 Perrin is a good shot. 
Connor is a GREAT shot.

Shane throws for his Dad.

I did a little shooting with my beloved 20 gauge.  When it got too hot, I retreated to the shade to listen to Grandpa Gundersen make fun of his son, grandson and great grandsons. 

After shooting, we made a quick stop at Taco Time for dinner (it's embarrassing how often that place feeds us) and we made it home just in time for smores and fireworks with the neighbors.

Welcome to the family Thya Rose!

Thya Rose Black came into our lives on June 4th!  She is our dark haired beauty.

Perrin, Connor and I got to go have a visit with our Emery County family.  We had a fun and busy time, helping with the new baby and helping Lacie and her family move.

Jayda loves her sister!

Here's our proud Mama.

She'll probably hate this picture, because she isn't wearing makeup.  
But I have always thought that Lacie was so so pretty.

Perrin is always so sweet with babies.

And here's our camera man.

It's a good thing he got the camera out, because
I didn't take a single picture while we where visiting.

He also took no less than, 30 selfies...
here's to a healthy sense of self. 

P.S. Our book for our trip was "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman.
