We had a nice long fourth of July weekend. Saturday morning we headed outwith the 2 youngest kids to the Des Moines Farmer's Market. From there we went to the Urbandale parade. The boys loaded up on candy. At one point one of the people in the parade walked right up to Brodie and Drew and dumped his entire bucket of candy on the ground for them. They were so excited! Instead of jumping up and down yelling for candy like everyone around us they just sat there and waved. I guess they sorta stuck out. Either way they scored more than their share of candy.The evening was spent with my dad and step mom, grandparents, and my step brothers and sister. We grilled, celebrated my grandmother's birthday and watched the kids play in the kiddie pool. That night we headed to Prairie Meadows and watched an amazing fireworks show. The weather was perfect and we sat before and after the show and let off sparklers.
It was a long day but it was good times.
Sunday, July 4 we got up early and headed to Farragut Iowa to visit Will's Aunt and Uncle. It rained the entire day. We had a great time visiting his cousins, some we had never met before and playing cards. Will's aunt provided us with amazing food and we left that night feeling happy and full!
Monday we had a somewhat relaxing morning before we headed to Colo so Will could help his step dad with his deck. They made huge progress and the end is now in sight for the deck! Woo Hoo.
