We had a great time with friends on the 4th.Â Zach was in Japan and I tried pretty hard to keep the kids happy and busy while he was gone.Â We visited the Butterfly Pavilion for the first time (where we bought a tarantula) then headed to Pearl St in Boulder.Â We had a Japanese dinner and then the kids found candy cigarettes at this awesome candy store. They smoked their candy while watching a string quartet play on the street. Ya, gotta love being Mormon and having 3 kids pretend to smoke. That was Tuesday.
Wednesday we kept busy at the pool most of the day.Â Sometimes I think I don’t need sunscreen.Â Note to self: I need sunscreen.
Thursday we spent the day with my good friend Heather and her family and extended family, who I met last year too.Â We followed them up to Georgetown to see fireworks.Â The kids had a blast and want to do it again next year.Â These are from the park the kids played at until it got dark.
