4th of July!!!!

You'll notice a slight blur on the left hand side of most of these pictures...um, dirty lens. Ok, let's start the day of with B eatting cookies by Breea at the park... Grandma and Grandpa Hatch gave ALL of the grandkids these killer cowboy hats from the old trading post...
The first event was a family bike parade, pretty much the whole town was IN the parade.
The cousins...
There was some amazing cotton candy that Von and Kayla took part in....
And Joseph City is even soo cool as to have a helicopter land in the middle of their 4th shin dig. It was awesome. When it took off all of the children's balloon's flew up with it.

B eatting rice crispy treat at the park

Caitee, Kayla and myself stretching to kick some butt in the volleyball tournement....
we lost.
B eatting a sucker at the park by the ponies.
the 3 most awesome kids I know...preston, mckenna and quin.
B eatting ice cream from the ice cream churn off.

You gotta love a town where the coolest guy gets by with wearing a crappy old hat with a HUGE hole in the back.

That evening we went to grandma and grandpa's house for a BBQ. J and his cousin Garrett enjoyed a 20 minute wrestling match.
B, eatting more ice cream...but this time it was the most amazing peach homemade ice cream ever....want the recipe...ask. It's seriously the best!
MUSCLES!!!!
Since I couldn't eat the ice cream, I held the ice cream.
Gotta be the best holiday in the best place ever!

Ok, your body is HOT. Are you seriously trying to lose more weight still? At one point in my single years, I got down to 148 (or maybe even 142, I cant remember) and it was the first time in my life that I thought, "Ok, I'm good. I dont need to lose any weight right now." It only lasted one summer and then I was back in the 150's and thinking I needed to lose, though I'd kill to be there now.

It's just interested how we are never satisfied with our bodies. You think you'd be happy losing 10 pounds but once you get there you want to lose 10 more.

So from an outsiders perspective, you're smokin'.

Hey, skinny minny! You look great and your post made me miss my childhood days in Joe City. I love the shorts you have on in one of the pics above. If I were even close to looking that great, I would beg you to tell me where you got them and then I'd buy away..............but no such luck.

That was a fun day! Everyone is right... You look so great! Way to go! Can't wait for Kamryns bday party!!! Aiden has been asking about it all week! Thanks for the invite to the movies too. It was fun! (the 30 minutes of the movie that I actually saw :))

I miss Joseph City! Killer party! I can't believe they had a helicopter! How cool is JC? I'm with Raysha on how cute your shorts are and with everyone else when they say WOWZA! You look great! I love the cute picture of Bossy eating the peach ice cream and yes, I'd love the recipe . . . and your address ;).

Yeah what? Skinny Minny. Looks like you guys had a flippin' awesome time. Who knew Jo City could be so cool. We must be kickin' it in the wrong town. Because our's was definitly not this awesome. Oh, you have to tell my where you got that awesome bike seat for Boss. That thing rocks and when Macy get's big enough, I want one of those. BTW, I can't believe you didn't taste the ice-cream....you have amazing will power.

Amy Allred said...

holy cow, just realized Raysha and I think the same, sorry I am a copy cat.

kristal said...

The shorts are from forever 21...they're hydraulics. They are my favorites!!! The bike seat we ordered online. It's my favorite too. Wal mart carries another front carrier, but it looked annoying. And I'll post the peach ice cream recipe tomarrow. Oh, and I'm really not skinny people. Seriously someday I'll be brave enough and post a flabby belly picture. Gross!!!!

Melissa said...

seriously, you are too skinny and i REALLY hate your guts. Have another baby and get fat with me again. Maybe it will have blue eyes.
