For the 4th of July weekend, our besty friends (the Torgesens) came up to visit one last time before they moved to California. We had a great few days with them. We got a picture of all the kids before the big parade:
L to R: Camden (4), Ashlyn (3), Rylin (3), Kendall (18 months), Allie (18 months), and Dustin (27 yrs :)).
When I was in Utah, my mom and I picked out this fabric to make festive skirts for the girlios. I think they turned out super cute. Good thing my mom is a such a master seamstress!
Camden is obsessed with fire trucks lately, and it made his day when he got to ride with Grandpa Soptich for the last part of the parade.
You are lucky I finally uploaded all the pictures from my phone. Now you can see Rylin with her first bag of cotton candy:
The happy couple wait in line for a carnival ride:
In the next picture, Rylin was excited. The one after that is when she started screaming and wanted to get off the ride. Good times!
We always get together for cake and fireworks to celebrate Parker’s entrance into the world. AKA his 7th birthday. What’s wrong with 12ish kids running around with sparklers?!?! Nothing, it was completely not stressful and it was full of joy and happiness.
