Indiana Jones !

So, my Trey is really into Indiana Jones lately!
We have been watching all the movies...and Trey's
present to Jay for his birthday was , of course,
Indiana Jones DVD !
Look at the cuts that Trey has on his face...just like
Indiana Jones !

And, when I come home from work, He is always
dressed in Indiana clothes and...of course the whip (his belt) :)

Oh! By the way, look at my pretty flowers out front !
Had to share :)

...and our cute porch chair...

Ok, back to Indiana Jones!
We picked up the hat and treasure-holding bag
at the DI store.

WE love our very own Indiana !

Jay turned the BIG 4 0 .... !!!

We left Cedar and headed back home to join Jay
at the family firework party! We arrived just in time!

Kass with Cecily and Taryn out in the pouring rain watching
the awesome firework show

I kept sneaking peaks at my soon to be 40 year old husband!..
his birthday was the following day ! Before we arrived that
night, the family sang "Happy Birthday " to Jay. He told me
he liked that. That was so fun for him !

Jayme and Kass taking a picture with Jackson !

The next morning, Trey fixed pancakes for Jay's birthday,
Jayme fixed bacon, and I made omlets. We ate a feast and
then got ready and left for a day at the zoo. The weather
was perfect and a perfect way to spend time with Jay on
his 40th birthday ! We totally didn't even plan to wear
BYU shirts together.

Trey !

Trey was right there in front where the polar bear was
popping up out of the water peaking in the window ! So cool !

After the Zoo, we took Jay to his birthday dinner at Red Lobster

We always like seeing the lobster there in the tank
at the restaurant.

We came home and Jay blew out his birthday candles

Trey was doing a silly dance as they kids presented Jay
 with his cake !

Jay turned 40 like it was nothing ! He just let us
enjoy spending his day with him and was so happy
for anything that the kids or I wanted to do to
celebrate his big day !


4th of July weekend

We had front row seats...right out on the road this year at the 4th of July Cedar main street parade!

Kim and Shaun's family came for the 4th weekend also

Ryan and Donna came up from St. George with their family

We enjoyed sitting back a little in the shade on the grass
at the park while watching the parade. Even Niel, Curt's friend,
was there and watched the parade with us.

Trey and Tyler standing with Megan, Nicole, and
Jessica waiting for more floats and candy to come by.

Uncle Shaun bought a balloon for each of the nephews
and nieces.

Jayme, Hailey, and Kassidy laughing as I try
to take their picture

This year, we set up our chairs by the Karaoke
 singing that was going on at the park. Grandpa Graf
 thought that was so entertaining !

Kim and Kassidy !

Sheri came over and brought us these yummy treats !!

We had fun visiting

Trey soaking in the rain! The kids LOVED playing
in the rain and didn't hardly come in the house for anything.

They were getting warm by the BBQ

We enjoyed sitting out on the porch
 watching the kids play in the rain

Kass and Trey !

Jayme and Kass put on a fun dress
 show for us ! They had found old dresses
in Grandma Graf's basement closet and decided
to try each one on. We told them to show
fun faces and poses as we took their pictures !


Shaun, Nate, and Ry went to buy some awesome fireworks ! 

Grandpa loves to get a hair cut from Kimmi

Grandma heading in for bed...we sure stayed up late at
 night each night visiting !

Alisha, Nate, and  Lexi watching fireworks !

Donna with her girls enjoying the show !

Jessi, Lexi, and Brooklyn had so much fun

Trey loved being part of the ones lighting off
each fire work ! He takes the job very seriously !

"Bippity, Boppity, Boo!" what Kaityln, Jessica,
and Lexi said over and over again with their sparklers !

Jacey loved sparklers

The cousins loved sleeping over in Grandma's living room

We love playing at the "Cedar Beach" when we get
a chance to ! The kids had a blast swimming with their
animals that they bought from the parade the day before.

I was missing Jay who had to stay back home
and work. Next time we hope we don't have to leave Jay
home over the 4th of July weekend

It was so much fun to watch the kids play in the water !


The kids also had a blast swimming at the aquatic center.
There is Megan jumping off the diving board.
