What a B-day!

July 21st!
That is a big day around here as it's James AND Jack's 
birthday.  They were very excited, and boy was this a day to remember.
First they got to watch a movie in their jammies:
 Morning of their birthday, showing how old they are!

At the gym they got to have a special treat bag, and
then we had a birthday lunch at Mc-a-D's and we spent
extra time and played in the play place part.
That afternoon we played at home, and got ready for
a fun dinner.  Kirstin came from Provo; Grandma and Papa
came from Syracuse; and Aunt Ann, Uncle Mike,
Kira and Tanner came from Clearfield, Tyler and McKell 
came from Kayesville, and Uncle Jason, Aunt Nicole and
Emily came from Sandy.
Everyone for dinner

Everyone standing out front as we sent up some fireworks for their birthday before heading
to the park.  Their favorite are "parachute guys", so we got two boxes to do.

The fireworks plus a shaved ice truck,
party at the park:)
 and everyone was invited.
I love where we live.
The boys asked why we were having a party at the park,
well, it was for Pioneer Day which is a holiday here in
Utah to celebrate the pioneer heritage on July 24th.
The celebration was held earlier up in our community,
and since it was on the actual birthday of my boys, 
they think it was for their birthday.
Best celebration for them ever.
There were kids running all over the place,
and no one really worries about them running off.
Seriously the best place to live ever.

The fireworks, it was quite spectacular.

These fireworks rivaled the bigger communities fireworks,
it was the idea of a neighbor of ours to get everyone to pitch in
then head up after the 4th to Evanston to buy fireworks.
He is also a very good salesman and negotiator, so he
talked the vendor into a sweet deal for us. 

Thank you to everyone who came, called, sent cards, and made their day extra special. I'm hoping this fireworks party becomes an annual thing around here, wouldn't that be neat!
