Let Freedom Ring ! Happy 4th!


We are glutens for punishment I guess, after only being home for a few days after being gone for a week and a half, we dedcided to head up to Idaho Falls, Id for the 4th of July.
Here are the boys at parade. It was a lot of fun, but a little on the toasty side. They sure had fun waving their flags and scrambling after candy. Everyone was cheering the floats on and encouraging them to douse the pregnant lady with their water and supersoakers, so thanks to the fam, I managed to keep cool :)

Grey bear did not appreciate the awe and wonder of the blessed tradition of the fireworks.

William on the other hand loved every minute. He was a little surprised at how loud the firework show was at first, but soon got over it and was laughing and giggling and oohing and awing with the rest of the crowd. We decided last minute to head up to Idaho falls for the 4th, but the fireworks display over river in Idaho Falls is amazing and if you ever get the chance to go, it is well worth the trip!!!!

Bri, Bri, Bri!

I am so glad you found our blog. I was happy to see you on the 4th and was sorry we didn't get a chance to chat. We just made the move back to Idaho on the first and I am not used to seeing people I know on every corner! It has been lots of fun! Congrats on peds, that is so neat and fits you perfectly. Where are you guys at?

I have to tell you, I saw your wife walking down the parade route at the 4th and thought to myself how I wished I looked that amazing when I was pregnant, I had no idea it was your wife! She is beautiful! You have adorable kids too, good luck on the next one!

holy moly I love that B&W pic with Grey and Will in color! LOVE IT!! (in the annoying dragon tales voice) I think that you owe all your time to the Merrill side for at least a year since you spent so much time in IF. Just kidding...but really I'm not.

I've lived here for two years and still haven't been able to witness the IF fireworks! Maybe next year. We were in Utah this year. I love all your pictures. The one of Greyson all tired out is adorable. You look amazing!
