Salt/Sand....What is the Difference?

A couple of weeks ago, Sterling took the kids to a new park near our house, which had a large volley ball sand pit. As we were leaving, Sterling saw Aubrie head for a pile of white sand she saw on the pavement. She scooped it up into her hands, and Sterling didn't see it again until about half an hour later when they finally arrived home, and she was up on a stool in the kitchen with the lid off the salt shaker, just about to pour it in. Good thing he was there to prohibit that little act of supposed brilliance.

I got this from Beau's blog! I thought it would be fun! I hope you will play along. Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you have of Sterling or I. It doesn't matter if you know us a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.
It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about us, We'll assume you're playing the game and we'll come to your blog and do the same thing. Thanks for playing!

Fourth of July

We had a fun and full fourth of July. Since Ster and the kids had just been to a parade a few days before the fourth we skipped an actual parade that morning. Which was fine by me so I'd get to sleep in a little bit! We got up and took our time getting ready and I also made some food for our potluck. We then headed to a park in Lindon to meet up with Sterling's family.

We ate lots of yummy food and the cousins had a blast playing with each other.

The sprinklers in the park turned on for about an hour while we were there. The dads,kids and Aunt Mckaylee had a great time playing frisbee, frisbee golf, chase and other games in the sprinklers! The mom's had a great time visiting.

Then a lot of people played Baseball!

The kids also had a great time playing with squirt guns and swinging on the swings.

After about five hours of playing at the park we headed home. We stopped and got pizza for dinner on the way home so I wouldn't have to cook. We bought a huge pack of fireworks from Costco and had fun watching them go off once it got dark enough. Our next door neighbors joined us which added to the fun. We then went to two different neighbors and watched their fireworks. We finally got the kids to bed around 11 PM. They didn't have a nap that day and were more than ready to call it a day!!!
