Fun in the VERY hot sun

Our July 4th weekend was very eventful. My family, Marquita's family, Shawn's family and Justin's family drove to St. George to celebrate together AND to see our Grandpa Murdoch who is living there with my Uncle Cam. The weekend was packed full of eating out, pool, 4th of July festival, Tuacahn play and visiting grandpa. The kids had a blast getting reacquainted after not seeing eachother for 2 years (since my wedding - my anniversary is tomorrow...YAY!!). I am going to attach a bunch of pictures (we missed you Morgan, Steph and Keira!!) Love you mom & dad!

Marquita, Lilia and the little boys enjoying the sun.

My brother Shawn with his youngest son Xavier.

Hannah and Lauren.

Gracie enjoying the view from her floatie.
Mitchell, Shawn's oldest, posed just long enough for me to snap one shot of him! Thanks Mitch!

As you can tell by Grace's flushed cheeks it was 100 degree weather. Thank goodness Aunt Lilia was there to keep her cool.

Grace is at the age where she just wants to be held by mom and dad. During this trip she allowed people to hold her for a short time. If you weren't holding her then she was probably smiling, laughing or waving at you though! She is our little sweetheart.
Gracie and Natalia.

Jeff, Taylor, Justin and Carlee at the festival.

Justin and Eridee

Dallin is such a good cousin.

Here is our beloved Grandpa Murdoch. Isn't this a nice photo of him mom?? This is the only living grandparent that Mike and I have so this is a trip we will cherish.

It was so special to be able to introduce Grace to her great grandpa. I hope she never forgets that moment.

Grandpa surrounded by family - just what he loves!

Mike with his new best buddy, Xavier.

Natalia and Lauren at Tuacahn. We saw Footloose and it was incredible!! It is a "must see" show if you will be in St. George this summer.

Xavier would not allow a picture of his face so the back of his head must do.

As you can tell, it was 11pm at night and I was still sweating like a pig.

Dad, you remember this highchair??? Yep, this is the one you sat in 55 years ago...hee hee

PHEWW!! I told you there would be a bunch of pictures. Happy 4th of July and Happy Birthday Mom!
