4th of July

We went to Show Low, Az for the 4th of July. Anywhere was better than the blistering 110 degrees of Gilbert. We high tailed it outta there! It was a busy 2 days filled with swinging, swimming, caneoing, parading, eating, and whining.

It's safe to say the blondies rather enjoyed themselves. There was so many fun things done they both had a difficult time deciding which was their favorite.

There was also a lot of hanging out. I was lucky enough to get a few little beanies crocheted. Can't wait to see them on little heads!!

Tatum was quite festive and super darling, as usual. Her hat was rad as was Tucker's that they wore for a combined total of 3 minutes. Aren't Tatum's piggies cute? She didn't think so and thought she'd cry about it.

The small town parade was just that, small but it didn't stop us from having a marvelous time.

Tucker knows the louder you scream and the more you wave your arms like a fool the more candy you get thrown at you. It worked, his arms were loaded as well as his mouth, both full of candy.

Can you do this, balance a sword on your boobs?

Tucker LOVES to canoe so him and Uncle Keil braved the lake, he enjoyed every second!

Braving the dark waters of the pond.

I love this little guy. For as rotten as he can be he sure can melt my heart!

Swinging has to be their favorite, I could spend hours pushing them and still, it wouldn't be enough!

I'm still laughing about the sword on the boobs! I'll have to try that sometime. Hahaha! I wish we could have gone! Maybe we will make it next year! You should come visit me in TX. Although it wouldn't be an escape from the heat - it's in the 100's here and the humidity is awful! BUT - there is lots to do! Love ya cuz!

Yowza! The picture of the girl with the sword is wrong on so many levels. Thanks for the picture though. ;)
