the 4th

We started our 4th of July out by attending our ward's annual breakfast. We are slowly starting to meet some couple's in our ward and had a fun time socializing and enjoying good food that we didn't have to prepare!
We hungout at home for most of the rest of the day. I did some shopping at Joann's (by the way I have updates on Pieces by Lisa), and then after dinner we headed to Memorial Park which is in downtown Colorado Springs. It is next to Prospect Lake which is an actual lake you can go boating on. We walked around, people watched (have to admit the people were kind of trashy), and settled down on the grass for a bit to let the kids run around and play.


Click on Cody's picture and notice his nice scratched up nose. He went mountain biking the previous day and had a run in with a tree!
After the kids played for a bit we walked back to our car, got some ice cream and headed to our friends house the Christensen's to watch the fireworks from their back deck. They were out of town, but graciously told us that they didn't mind if we used their deck. We were able to see fireworks from all over the Springs and had fun with our little family.

Cody,
This looks just like your picture for kindergarten with the scraped up nose from riding a bike back then. Hope the tree is okay, like the side walk was alright from your fall. Keep the pictures coming. Mom

Always graceful, right Cody, I'm sure it was planned that way. You're kids already look like they're bigger than last month when we saw you! They must stop this growing-up phase they're in!

It sounds like you had fun! The picture of you and Aubrey is cute. I want to hear the story about Codys run in with the tree!

Sounds like you enjoyed your selves. I love to see what adventures you will be doing next. I guess that statement "watch out for the tree." is true for Cody.

Woa! I'm surprised how long Aubree's hair is already! You haven't been gone THAT long. Such cute pictures!

Aubrey is looking big. And, is Tucker doing a pirouette?

Happy 4th of July to you all - looks like you're enjoying Colorado. Cody, you really need to stop smashing your face.

Looks like you had a nice 4th...even in a city you don't quite know yet. Cute pictures! By the way, tell Cody we LOVED his comment on our blog - he is hillarious. Speaking of hillarious, another thing he wrote on your blog that I thought was hillarious was when he said something like how your pathfinder did what it was supposed to do - find paths. He kills me!
