july 4th 2013

 again, we spent this fourth of july in monroe with our families and the usual festivities.
 the girls loved the parade, beth finally got the concept of chasing down candy :)
miles was cute and cuddly and we all had a good time.  my brother, travis, and his daughter, megan, were in town so they joined us all day.

after the parade, we all went over to central for the town lunch on the park.
 the girls raced in their age groups, but i think beth got overwhelmed or scared, or both, and sort of froze up until the race was over.  then she charged her way over to me ;)

they had a huge slip and slide again this year and kate had the time of her life.  she was totally upset when it was time to leave!  beth, on the other hand, wouldn't go near it because of the constant sprinkling of water (to keep the whole thing wet)

shhhh...... but i think i scarred her for life (or for a year or so) by giving her cold showers every time she pooped her pants... ooops, sorry babe!!

couldn't be the fourth (or twenty fourth) without an afternoon golf game!  i know i'm always the one taking these pictures, but you better believe i'm out there playing, too!!

we ended the night back in richfield for fireworks.  we met with weston's family at the rotary park and let the kids run crazy with glow in the dark stuff.  i don't even know how much of the show they paid attention to, to be honest!

it was just as well - it was a looooong fireworks show.  towards the very end, the rain clouds rolled in and started a small storm.  i have to admit, i took the opportunity to end the night, be done watching fireworks, and head home ;)

So, I could have sworn that there were no posts forever and now I find that there are all these posts - I loved catching up with your exploits this year (even though I have spent time with you in person it is fun to read your take). Thanks for taking care of my boy for me!
