hip hoppin' 4th.

"We're hippin, we're hoppin, it's the 4th of July...."

That is the song Taylor made up as she jumped on a pogo stick during Chad's fabulous fireworks extravaganza. She sang it over and over again, and then Kate joined in, and now 4 days later, it's still stuck in my head.

We had a wonderful time visiting Aunt Lisa and family in Utah over the 4th of July. Utah has such great festivities going on and it feels so patriotic. We went to the Freedom Festival downtown, went to a Real Salt Lake MLS soccer game (with fireworks after), went to 7 Peaks where Levi fell in love with the lazy river, we visited Temple Square and the ginormous new Conference Center, and on our last day we ventured IKEA with the 4 kiddos in tow. There was a lot of other things mixed in there too. Our days were full and fantastic. Lisa fed us her amazing cuisine, and I finished a book! ("The Help" I highly recommend it)

Now we are back to the grind, enjoying our last days of track break before the kids go back to school for 3 weeks... torture. I have some crafts we have been doing that I hope to share... someday.

The "Real Salt Lake" Soccer Game (we won 5 - 0 )

Enjoying the park.
