My neice Ella came into town to spend a week with us. We were so excited to have her here especially for the 4th of July. She has become good Facebook/Texting friends with Taz's friend Sierra and so Sierra came over and they met for the first time face to face. Sierra made her this sign with all her favorite things on it.
They watched a lot of Youtube videos (On the kitchen floor I don't know why??)
They ended at 8am. The girls stayed downstairs to sleep, Tanner managed to move himself upstairs to his bed.
Ella did Harry Potter.
They wanted me to do a photo shoot of them, so since I'd been taking a photography class I obliged.
These are unedited photos, but still turned out cute.
It actually rained on the 4th of July. We had a back up plan of an indoor picnic and Redbox, but the weather cleared, so we headed out to Boulder City. I am so glad we decided to go. The rain cooled down the temp and it was in the 80's and beautiful weather. We got our normal spot and set up. We took homemade sub sandwiches and watermelon and chips and brownies and rice krispi cookies. We brought cards and bocce ball and played and talked and ate.
I had made homemade bubble solution and Garry made us a giant wand and we took it and played. IT was so much fun and so cool. We probably have about 100 pictures just of it. I am not exagerating either.
Eating and waiting.
I also brought some glowsticks and so we brought those out when it got dark.
And that was our 4th!
The next day I took them to the Springs Preserve. They were having a venemous animal display and they kids had fun on the exhibits. We also saw the live venemous show (Interesting with 4/5ths of us afraid of snakes!)
Ella and Cynjyn did a lot of swimming!
And we broke out the bubble wand again and got some more cool pictures.
I love this toy!
