Our weekend

What were we thinking going shopping on the 4th!  It was like a ghost town on the streets. If you ever 
want personal service though, go on the evening of July 4th (we've also gone on the evening of 
Black Friday and the stores were near vacant then, too!)  
One clerk followed me around the store yesterday offering advice. It was kind of nice.

Nevertheless….we missed our kids and felt the sudden urge to be patriotic. We didn't want to 
crash Logan and Amy's party with their friends, but we reminded ourselves that they DID invite us so 
we could resist no longer. What I was not prepared for was how I would feel seeing Logan with his 
friends…..the same ones he hung out with since middle school. Those 6 guys use to be inseparable.

"The boys" have 17 children between them now!... with 2 more on the way. 
I wish I would have thought to take a picture with their wives too. 
Brad (in blue shirt) just became a father for the first time 4 days ago!
Robby, Brad, Logan, Travis, Bryce, and Ryan.

One of our most favorite part of the holidays is receiving pictures of our grandkids …
you may have seen some of these on Facebook, but if not, here's a few.

McKenna with Scarlett and Grant in Vancouver, Washington

Pretty little Miss Scarlett.

Wish I could have seen Richie's firework show in Beaverton, Oregon!
His parents spent most of the day packing. 
They will be moving to Vancouver into their very first home this week!!!

Our sweet little Leo!

We didn't see Brock and Erin's family until the 5th…
When Princess Violet was grieving that her "glass slipper"no longer fit!
She was SO upset about that.

Cami was just happy to drift into dreamland.

And I was happy that I got to see many of our grandchildren either in picture or person.
I think holidays were designed for that purpose.

Just a few moments ago another picture came through!
From Logan, Utah to Disneyland. Emily, Matt, and Robby.
I can only imagine what it's like being there on the 4th!
