Blueberry Festival

Bill's Berry Farm is a cute little farm out in the country.  The Blueberry Festival was happening so we had to check it out.  It was so scenic and it was a fun and relaxing family day.

A hay ride picks visitors up from the parking area and takes you to the festival.

Along with berry picking, there are fresh, hot blueberry donuts, a grill, and several little vendors with homemade wares that were fun to look at.

It's all kid friendly with lots of play areas.

W's first experience with a photo cut out.  He didn't quite know what to do and it was tricky trying to get 3 littles looking in the right direction.

A few animals were available for the kids to pet. This fuzzy little calf was adorable.

This tractor pulled "train ride" was so cute.  E was pretty sad to leave us when the train pulled away so they had to stop and let her off.  Maybe next year. :)

Independence Day

Happy Birthday, America!  We celebrated our country's beginnings with a ward breakfast and kid's bike parade.  Then we headed over to the city parade.  I love parades.  This one was pretty hot but still fun for everyone.

It was fun to actually know a few people in the parade including our cute niece (waving)

We went home for a bbq and fireworks, then watched the stadium fireworks show from our yard.

As you can see, it was hard to keep E from touching the sparkers.  *Disclaimer* no children were harmed in the taking of these photographs.

Our little dancer

Camille got take a beginner ballet/tap class this past year.  She loved it and picked it up pretty quick.  She was so excited about her recital at the end of the year, probably mostly because of the outfit and because I said she could wear makeup. :)

See what I mean?  She can hardly contain her excitement...

Her class was pretty small, which was nice for more one on one help.

They set up a backdrop afterwards that we could take pictures at.

Camille really got into it.

A few dance friends.

I can't help but giggle when I see these two in their matching shirts.  I'm sure W will hate me for it in about 10 years from now!

It's been hot, hot, hot in tri cities!  Like 105 every stinkin day for the last month or so.

New babies!  Welcome baby Caden!

Helping load the dehydrator

Loves him some blackberries!

Making his momma and daddy proud.  Fell asleep with a toothbrush in hand.
