Saturday in the Park - I think it was the Fourth of July!

You know the song from Chicago called Saturday in the Park - we listened to that in the car on the way to Idaho Falls over the Fourth of July - then that Saturday we lived that song - it was great! (You can hear the song on my playlist to the right) We began the day by sleeping in and relaxing the morning away, then we went crazy - we visited the zoo and saw some fun animals, then we went to the mini amusement park across the parking lot from the zoo. We enjoyed watching Brandon and Grant ride on many of the rides and then we joined them on the Farris wheel - so fun! Then we walked a little ways to a great play ground enjoyed slides, climbing and tunnels. We shared REALLY yummy ice cream cones and then headed back home. That night we had fun swimming in Grandma and Grandpa's pool - first time swimming for Grant and first time solo swimming for Brandon (we really do need to swim more often!). After the pool we had a family BBQ - yum! Such a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!! Here are a few of the pictures from the day.

On Sunday we continued the fun by visiting Grandma and Grandpa Bowman, (little did we know that it was for the last time - so glad we made the visit!) visiting Ryan and Violet in their new home, having another family dinner with everyone and doing LOTS of fireworks in the alley behind the condo - the boys loved it and enjoyed the time with their cousins. Brandon even had his first "girlfriend", which made us all laugh - a lot! He was SO attached to this cute friend of the twins (Brandon's cousins). Should I be concerned that she is 13 years old - ten years his senior? :)On Monday despite it being the holiday we spent the day driving home - Grant was a happy passenger (amazing in and of itself) Thanks to Jodi for the fun holiday sparkle-light which kept him entertained. We made it home in time to watch a few fireworks by the neighbors in the rain. What a GREAT holiday weekend!!!!!!
