Fun on the Fourth in Idaho!

We had a really good holiday weekend. :)

We went to Idaho to visit my hometown and brought along some friends from Utah.

We started out by going to my Grandpa's and letting the kids ride my childhood family horse Button's. Tiare and Yasmin (my friend's girls) had a complete blast! We had to peel Tiare off after many rides!

We then had fun playing in the creek. Nothing like fresh cold water to play around in

on a hot summer day.

Yasi enjoying the water!

Roman splashing around!

Lehua playing around!

One more ride on the horse!

All dolled up and ready for the Fourth of July festivities!

My handsome boy!

Waiting for Grandma to come along and sing to us. My family had a political float so my mom was singing and my sister and hubby were throwing candy. Roman flipped when he heard his grandma's voice. It was very funny! He really picked up on the whole getting the candy that the floats throw. After the parade we headed over to the park for lots of games, food and fun. It was a great weekend and we were happy our friends could join us!

On a side note- Roman had his first big crash at the parade. :( He scratched up his arm and leg after sliding down a cinder-block retaining wall. Poor boy. The ouchies look way worse than they are but I thought I better journal his first big crash. Don't worry though- he was back to being mischievous 1 minute later. He has no fear I tell you!

I hope everyone had a great and SAFE holiday weekend!

Check out those cuts, ouch! I'm sure it didn't phase him for long. What fun to have your friends there with you for the festivities and the horse riding! I love that your Mom was singing on the float too. I just love Roman's hair, how do you get it so perfect looking? He is such a stud in his little striped shirt and killer hair! Nice pic :)
