Happy 4th of July

We had a TON of fun on the 4th of July weekend. On the 4th of July we had a pancake breakfast with our neighborhood, Keira LOVED the pancakes and ate way more than I did. They did the primary parade and the girls had a great time with that riding their decorated bikes around the block. Keira peddled her little heart out it was so funny I kept thinking of the music played on "The Wizard of Oz" with the wicked witch of the west it was funny. After that we went boating to Utah like aka "sludge lake" with my parents, the girls love boating especially Keira. My mom always brings the starbursts aka "Yummy's." Nyah got to drive with grandpa which she thought was wonderful. Jayda totally fell asleep I think the rocking motion just knocked her out, she likes it to I think. After boating we had a BBQ at my parents with hamburgers and the works, then we made smores which Nyah was so proud of herself, she did the whole thing all by herself. Keira on the other hand, her idea of smores was just putting an unroasted marshmallow between two cookies and there you have it a sugary treat that has you bouncing off the walls. If you look closely at the pictures on the slid show you will see one of Nyah eating her fruit, she is our good eater and eats healthy things. Then I turned around and there is Keira with a bag of marshmallows stuffing her face, oh the contrast of siblings. We then lit fireworks which I thought the girls would be scared of the sparklers but not at all they got right in there and had a blast. The next day we went to a bbq at our neighbors that night where for desert they BBQ'd Twinkies, yes of all things Twinkies, I was hesitant but they where pretty darn good I was pleasantly surprised. She is from down south so I am sure that is where they picked that up but mmmm, it was good. After that we went to our other neighbors for desert and fireworks, the kids LOVED having the desert table right there so they could eat whatever they wanted, when they wanted. The guys had way to much fun lighting the fireworks, I don't know who had more fun the kids with the deserts or the dads with the fireworks ha ha. We had a good time celebrating and BBQing though and now back to the gym I go hi ho hi ho, I think I gained like 5 pounds in two days from all the junk we ate. Oh, well it was worth it.
