I know you probably expected to see pictures of fireworks on here. fireworks. I just didn't want to write the fourth of July. On the 4th we went to a parade in the morning. There was about 10 Firetrucks and ambulances at the beginning. It was so loud. Brock was crying and so scared. It was the loudest and longest Emergency vehicle part of any parade I've seen.

It was Andee's first time at a parade. The whole time Adam was getting after me to help her get more candy. This little or big kid, I guess I should say, kept coming over and stealing the candy in front of the little kids. So I pushed him down and gave him a piece of my mind. He never came and stole the candy again! Just kidding. I can't say I wasn't tempted but I left the boy alone. :)

We had a BBQ then headed to fireworks. Our friends brought glow sticks and the kids loved them! We tried to find sparklers but I guess they are illegal in Illinois, who knew? The real firework was a good show. All in all it was a fun 4th. I love fireworks and I love the 4th of July.

Catch Up!

The weather has been great and hot! The kids love playing outside with the hose and in the mud. Sometimes I give in and let them get as dirty as they want. This is Brock covered with mud and loving it.
My parents, Kara and Koree came out to visit for a few days. It was a lot of fun to have them here. We did all the Chicago things. They wanted to come visit before Karson moved home. Kourtney and Dustin came out for a few days too. They drove one of Karson's cars home for him. I don't know why I didn't get any pictures of them. It was fun and it ended too soon!
Then Karson and family moved home to Idaho. I cried, like always.
Adam and I had our 6-year wedding anniversary. We had a sitter so we headed downtown. There is a restaurant at the top of the Hancock building that I have been wanting to go have dessert at for a few years now. So...we headed up there. It was really fun. I can't believe how the time is flying by.
Andee started swim lessons. She hates putting her face in the water. Maybe I am rubbing off on her too much. She loves to swim around with her floaties. She could be in the pool all day if we'd let her. This is her jumping with excitement for swim class. She had the floaties on the first couple days and now they are off.

Last but definitely not least Adam is done with being on CALL for residency. Woo HOOOOO!
