We had a really fun 4th of July weekend. Bill, Marsha, and Joshua drove up to be with us for Joshua's blessing on Sunday. That was really great! Then on Monday, we drove to the beach and hunted agates all afternoon. We all found some really great ones! Arwen was amazing. She'd be skipping along and find these beautiful, big agates. Way to go Arwen. Joshua was the winner though. He found the biggest one. It was a really fun day. Tuesday, we went to the gorge to play in the waterfalls. It was a nice way to cool off. Then we headed over to Vancouver, WA to watch the "biggest firework display west of the Mississippi." It was really fun. Arwen got her face painted and we all enjoyed some kettle korn, cotton candy, and an elephant ear. The fireworks were amazing, as usual! Overall, we had a really fun weekend!!

Arwenisms: Arwen enjoys jumping on and wrestling grandpa. He once told her that it was enough and she came to me and said, "Grandpa doesn't want me anymore." It was so sweet!!

Noahisms: Noah is frightened of LOTS of things. Whenever he sees or hears something that scares him, his eyes get big and he says, "Animal." It's so cute. The thunder is "Animal," as are trains and fireworks.

Joshyisms: He is getting fat!!

The kids are so cute! I love Arwen's fourth of July Crocs! It seems so long since i've seen you all! Oh, and what is an elephant ear?

It's kind of like a funnel cake--a big deep fried thing that has cinnamon on it. Pretty good--but funnel cakes are better.
