Happy 4th of July!

I drove to Vernal on Wednesday and stayed with Dana, Jeff, and the kids. It was fun to bum around Vernal for a few days. It is not even the same place anymore. They built a new Rec center, and we watched the kid's swimming lessons, then on the 4th we went swimming there. Its a really nice place. The kids are getting so big Dakota turned 10 on the 4th, Madi is 8, and Dallin is 6. On the 4th we went to the parade and tried to go to the lake but they were packed, so we went to the rec center. Later that night we went to Dana's parents house and had dinner and watched fire works with the whole clan. When we were lighting off our own fire works all the kids and grandkids were sitting on the hill and as soon as they would start to spark high there little heads woudld disappear. Then a minute later they would pop up. It was like watching little rabbits. It was a lot of fun. Definately hard to leave though. I drove home on Saturday night to make it back for Connor's blessing. I didn't leave Vernal until 10!! I have never driven Daniels alone in the dark like that, it was definitely an experience.
On Sunday Connor was blessed. Andrew did so well. He is such a spiritual guy. Connor is starting to fatten up. He is over 7lbs now, and he is becoming his own little person. It was a nice afternoon with all the family. We went back to Andrew & Aleta's house for lunch and were able to just hang out with everyone, and of course snuggle the baby.
