Happy 4th of July!

I love the 4th of July and this year had to fly solo (which lately is the story of my life). We spent the 3rd in Gunnison and the 4th in Salina, the best of both worlds if you ask me.  We got tons of candy and had so much fun with our family!!

 We went to the Restless Heart concert in Gunnison with the Andersons.  The kids loved dancing to the music and playing with their cousins and even enjoyed the fireworks.

 Kamryn loved her licorice!

 And Gavin loved dancing with his glow sticks.  He's quite the dancer too, gets his moves from me NOT Carl.

On the 4th I met my parents in Gunnison for the parade.  Kamryn was such a Momma's girl that morning and Gavin was in the parade so I had a hard time catching him candy. 
 Kamryn started out happy.

 But any time I wasn't holding her or walked away this is what she did...which made for a long day for me!

 Uncle B, Marissa, Kooper, and Gav's truck.

 This is the only picture I got of Gavin, Brandon was driving too fast and my camera is too slow so I got the tip of his head and arm.  He was having a blast and thought he was pretty cool.

Later on we went over to Salina and played their games.  Gav loved the bouncy slide and Kamryn slept at Grandma and Grandpa B's house.

 He did awesome at the dart game and even won Kamryn a necklace.  What a nice brother!

Later on we went to the parade in Salina.  Grandma Brown, Dwight, Breeanna, and Tanner met us there and Grandma was lucky enough to hold Kamryn the whole parade.  She was asleep the whole time, otherwise Kamryn would have been screaming!

 Grandpa B was in the parade with the city council. 

Gav and Laynie showing off their treats.  We walked away with lots of candy and lots of fun.  I'm still pretty sure that there is no way to celebrate the 4th unless you are in Salina!  It's the best hometown entertainment and of course, great seeing family and friends.  God Bless America!!
