July was definitely a fun month!! HOT and busy and we had Nana and Grandad here to visit!!
The kids absolutely adore their Nana and Grandad, and were sooooo excited to have them visiting us all the way from New Zealand! We tried to cram in as much fun as possible while they were here, and we were definitely sad to see them go :(
Below is Jacky's favorite way to eat a snack. Cracks me up every time, the boy likes to lounge!!
We took Nana to Six Flags to see the animals and go on the rides, and Jacky really enjoyed the tigers!
Riley loves the water park part of Six Flags, and she played and played and played in there forever!
Good thing it was a hot day, this little one was totally soaked!!
Grandad had to go home a little early, but Nana got to stay and experience her first 4th of July in the US with us!! We started out by going to the local bike and dog parade!
This was their first year participating in the bike parade, and the kids both did really well and had lots of fun!!
Jackson's favorite place to be in the whole wide world is up on Grandpa's shoulders. He would stay there all day long, happy as can be. I think it's so funny how he uses Grandpa's ears as handles!!
We didn't have any sparklers this year, so we just played with those little pop-its noise makers, which seemed to make Riley pretty happy. :)
I was trying to get ONE good picture of the two kids together. Man that can be so hard these days!!!
Everyone took long midday naps, which meant we were all good to go for late night fireworks!! There are a couple spots in town that are great for viewing fireworks, but the parking is a nightmare, and with Mark just a few days out of knee surgery, we decided to park right in front of Safeway, got out our seats and enjoyed the show!!
Jacky was so excited!!! He kept pointing and yelling "look at dat one!!!" "Did you see dat???"
Riley loved them too, but she got a little cold so she needed some extra snuggle time. :)
A very fun and very long day for these little cuties, but well worth it!!
