Where Did July Go?

July has been packed with many fun and wonderful things.  

We finished off June and started July in Vegas.  The girls and I headed there with Grandma in tow.  M competed in Nationals there, and for some reason I have no pictures of that.

It was hot and we all enjoyed the pool!
Giant shoe with a big sign that said "No Climbing on Shoe", OOPS!

We were so excited to go eat at the Wicked Spoon, but when we got there it was closing.
What kind of buffet closes at 9:00 in Vegas?  We were pretty bummed.

Next came the 4th of July.  We started the morning bright and early and met with family to watch the balloon festival.  We each brought a breakfast and settled in to watch the balloons take off.

It's always fun to see all the colorful balloons in the sky.
After the festival we did a small hike up the Grotto Trail.
 It's a  simple yet fun hike that all the kiddos love.  

The water is freezing and only a few brave the cold.
S wanted to be super brave and went face first.

I think this means he has super powers!

Me and my man!

For some reason this picture cracks me up.
We saw several deer on our way down.  Very cool!

After the hike we found a place to stop and have a picnic.
T caught a snake and had fun scaring us with it.

Next we all went to Grandma Davies house to finish last minute preparations for our upcoming family reunion.  After that we headed to some friends house for a BBQ and fireworks.  It was a fun and exhuasting day had by all!
