Have you ever noticed that Independence Day isn't called that very often? Every time someone mentioned it, they would say "Happy fourth" not Happy Independence day. And with Pioneer day, it's the same. "Happy twenty fourth". Interesting.
Anyway. It was warm, and quiet. I liked it.
We barbecued at Dustin's grandparents house. Dustin had to work late (we celebrated on the 23rd) so I went over with the girls and we ate and did fireworks.
These two pictures are of Dustin almost burning his hand off. His aunt and uncle brought sparklers for the kids, and none of them were interested in them, so Dustin said he would use them. He proceeded to take 3 boxes of them and lit them all at once. I would not recommend it. It burned his fingers and so he threw it towards the bucket of water we had on hand. It didn't make it. No one else was hurt.

Kennecott Copper mine last week. I haven't ever been, and I've wanted to see it for years. It's quite huge. Massive. I liked going there. The trucks they use to haul things around are quite large too. We went there and saw their little movie and looked at old mining stuff, and the little museum they had there. It was fun. :) It made me feel quite small.

So on Saturday, we decided we wanted to go and test drive a Jeep Liberty, because we are getting one soon. And too see how two car seats fit. What ended up happening on Saturday, however, was no test drive. Or anything fun. It was not a very good day. My car has been broken for the last two weekends. Dustin fixed it both times and it took a long time both times. I can't tell you how grateful I am that Dustin knows how to fix our cars. We would be so broke from all the mechanics fees otherwise. After spending the whole day fixing the car, he was pooped and in a bad mood. I was pooped and in a bad mod, just because. So Rhea and Ray graciously asked if they could bring us dinner, so we had a barbecue at our house. Rhea even did the dishes! How nice. So the day wasn't a total bust. And I got to take some great pictures of my little family. :)
So if you know anyone who wants a Jeep with lots of goodies, let me know. :)
Have a nice day.

So Sarah is an excellent sleeper. People give me dirty looks when I tell them that. It's true, though. I go to sleep for the night at about midnight and get up at around 8 and she wakes up once or twice to eat and might stay up for a little bit, but then she goes to sleep again. The hardest part of her day is around 10 pm. That's her fussy time, and it's difficult because that's my fussy time too. hahahahaha. I am one lucky girl, though. Our daughters are quite sweet. My husband is pretty rockin' too. I'm very blessed.
That first week, Dustin and Miaya had a daddy/daughter day. Dustin took her fishing. She had been begging to go fishing for a while, so they went. She caught this one and one jumped off her hook right when she was reeling it in.
And this is the outfit she chose to wear when we went to go and see Dustin's Grandma Baker. It was pretty warm outside, hence the nice and cool dress, but she insisted on wearing her snow boots. This crazy kid. I lub her.
Oh and the pic on the right is Sarah Lolie in the hospital. hehehehehe. She had no name when I took this pic. :D
