4th of July Weekend!

We had the best 4th of July weekend! Cody, Carly and Lincoln were able to make it up for a few days. We went camping with them up in the Big Cottonwood Canyon. It was so pretty up there. It was very green and we even had a little creek running right through our camp site. We played games, roasted marshmellows and went on a walk. I don't know who let him have this!

We weren't suppose to pick the flowers! (Oops! Too late)

Lincoln loved this game. He was inside the trailer and we would go outside and scare him. He was laughing so hard!

Sleeping on the way home from camping!
We wish we could have stayed longer than just one night, but we had to get home to celebrate the Holiday with the other sides of our families.
On Friday night, the 4th, we went and had a BBQ with Justin's family and then went to Lagoon's fireworks with my mom and dad, and two brothers. We put our love sac in the back of our truck and sat on it during fireworks. Justin got some awesome pictures!

On Saturday the 5th we had a birthday party for Lincoln who will be 1 year old on July 20th. How crazy, i can't believe that it has already been a year! He is getting so big, and doing so many cute things. He laughs at everything! You smile at him and he gets a big grin on his face and giggles. This last weekend was the highlight of my month! I still wish i could convince my brother-in-law and sister to move up here, but that would take A LOT of convincing, especially on Cody's part! Lincoln loved opening all of his presents and didn't want to sit and open other presents when one caught his attention. After presents we did the cake. We sang to him and he actually tried to blow the candle out but mommy had to help. Then we undressed him and he dove in.

We gave him a Fisher Price Noah's Ark with little people and animals!

At first he was just picking at it with his pointer finger and thumb, almost like he knew if he made a mess he'd get in trouble. Then we all started taunting him, and he got both of his hands messy! He was even trying to share with his Mom and Grandma Trythall. He kept saying "mmmm!" and then he'd scream cause he was so happy. He had a baul! After cake we had to bathe him because he was covered in it, then he was so tired from all of the excitement and went right down for a nap. (Thanks sis for the cute pictures!)
