State Holiday

The 24th of July is "Pioneer Day" or, Karl Malone's birthday, which ever you prefer. I love it for the BBQ's and the fireworks, and the getting together with family.

We went to Aunt Liz's. She is the BEST. She does everything for every body, and goes over the top! I look at her and think, "I am so glad you beat the living crap outta that C word!" CUTE Aunt Liz. LOve her!

The kids were in heaven, it was Cousin Town! Aunt Liz and Uncle Dave live in a cul-de-sac, so the kids can go crazy with bikes and Big Wheels. And cool guns made from sprinkler pipe! Instead of shooting messy marshmallows, they shoot pom-poms! Great idea, huh?

Harper and cute little cousin Lizzy are old enough now to enjoy playing with each other. And
Lizzy's baby sister Hazel is quite loved by all, especially Harper!

Isn't Liz's garden lovely? My favorite words to describe it are, "enchanted" and "beguiling".

What a lovely weekend!

Those guns are so cool! It does look like such a good time. We did nothing, but I guess that's what happens when you don't live in Utah!
