July 24th, Pioneer Day

We went to Dan's parent's house for fireworks and a bbq. We had a good time. Dan did not have the day off of work, so we were all kind of bummed. I was experimenting with my camera, and here's a picture I took. All of the pictures with the kids in them ended up too blurry.

Caleb Turned 6 Years Old

Yesterday was Caleb's birthday. He got a new bike for his birthday. He had certainly outgrown his old bike.

He is such a sweet boy. I sure do love my Calebee.

In the evening, he had friends over for a swimming party. We just got out the slip n slide, and filled up the kiddie pool. I think everyone had fun. My mom even fed Alex a piece of cake. He is not quite 9 months old. I think by the time you have 4 kids, you realize that they don't die from eating real food before they turn a year old.

The 4th of July 2008

I started the 4th of July quite early. I went and helped with the Riverton 10K before it started, and then I ran the Riverton 10K. My goal was to run it in 48 minutes, and I ran it in 47:32. I was pleased with my time. Leslie and mom also ran it. Leslie didn't feel well, but Mom did well. Mom is always disappointed that she is getting slower each year. But I think it is great that she is still running. She will be 60 years old next year.

We ate lunch with my family. Then, in the evening we had Dan's family over for a bbq. It was fun to have them over. Dan wanted to show them what he had done with the yard.

Tonight we have been watching a movie called "Gettysburg". Actually, just me and Dan and Rachel. Caleb and Anna were up in my room watching "Land Before Time the 20th". I don't think there is a 20th.....but its a library movie and they made tons of "Land Before Time" movies. Anyhow, we were talking to Rachel a little bit about American History. She knows some since she is now a 3rd grader. She said, "If Abraham Lincoln was so important, why is his picture on such a worthless piece of money". Good question. A penny didn't used to be worthless.

When I went in to Smith's to get a few groceries, I noticed the price of gas was 4 cents higher when I came out. And I was only in the store a few minutes. Maybe we need to buy a horse and buggy. Of course, we couldn't afford to feed a horse with the way the price of everything is going up.

Anna told us that she wants to plant marshmallows in the garden. I thought that was funny. She loves marshmallows.
