Happy 4th!


This year, Craig and I went up to his parents' house for the 4th. This is the view from their front porch. I mean, really? That's what I said when I got there.



When some parents have all their kids out of the house, they get lonely. Not Gary and Mignon. Can you blame them? The moose keep them company.



Below is what we in Mills family like to call a pickle pancake. Yum yum (Kaden said he loved pickles on anything so Craig attempted to call his bluff. Ivan added the two blueberries for good measure).



Kaden wasn't afraid of taming this beast.



Gretchen and her new baby, Cooper.



Sunny and her new baby, Lincoln. These babies are the cutest.




Here are all the nieces and nephews on the Brighton parade float (which may or may not have been blasting Neil Diamond's "Coming to America.").



I guess Felicity was too cool for the hat. Clever girl.

As usual, we had a great time up the canyon. Thanks Gary and Mignon for a great 4th!

Brighton Parade!!!! I have been to that thing like 10 times in my life. Craigy - remember how we were neighbors kind of? Nostalgia rocks me.

Ya it is crazy your cabin is so close to my parents place.

You've got to love the Brighton parade. Giving kids control over candy is the best thing that could ever happen to them. It would be like giving an adult control of the US military for an hour.

This looks like the best fourth of July ever!

Kristen, I'm going to start stalking your blog. Via Kellie's. So there. :)

Kristin said...

That's so funny! I've actually tried to click on your blog from Kellie's blog, too but it's blocked.:)

How are you and Mike doing?

That pickle pancake is bringing back my morning sickness. "Oh Barf".

Those pancakes look soo bad. Pancakes yes, pickles of course, but never the two shall meet.

Love the kids head dresses - so patriotic. What a beautiful place to live.
