2. We went to the 4th of July Parade. We parked right by Pasco High and walked down to Sylvester, and it was fun to show the kids where I went to high school and Seminary.

3. I love this kid. I have no idea what's on his nose.
4. We finally got a table for the patio! We've spent a few evenings playing games as a family. Apples to Apples didn't work, because Marcus doesn't read well enough to know what's on the cards, and the kids didn't know half the people or things on the cards, anyway. "Who's Fidel Castro?" Carcasonne was a big hit, especially since the m&m's were the perfect colors to be our score markers.
5. Rebecca's 3rd birthday. Oh, how I love this girl! She is such a sweet thing. She loves to help, especially in the kitchen. If she sees me in the kitchen, she's immediately asking for the step ladder so she can help. We got her a toddler bike, but found it was a bit small, so I then took her to Walmart to exchange it and get something a little bigger. We spent the day as a family, then Brian's dad came over after dinner for cake.
|She came to get me - "My birthday is in the kitchen!"|
|We at least put pants on her before taking her to the store.|
|She had a hard time pulling the present out of the bag.|
|A really hard time.|
|But she loved it once she got it out!|
