Fourth of July

This past weekend we decided to visit our good friends Brooks and Amber down in Coalville. We just bought a new tent last week, and we wanted to test it out. We set up camp next to Brooks and Amber's place and stayed for the weekend.

We built a campfire, went boating, played at the park on the blow-up slides, watched Henefer's fireworks, and made a trip to Park City. We had a blast! Reed and Jett did awesome camping and boating. The temperature dropped down to 50 degrees at night, but the boys slept through the night. In fact, this past weekend was Jett's first time sleeping through the night. I was so excited I didn't have to get out of my warm sleeping bag to feed him. Jett was bundled up in his play-pen while Brett, Reed, and I were snuggled up on our air mattress.

On Friday we took out Brooks's boat and even though the water was a little rough and the temperature was a little cold we still tried a little of everything. Brett had the brilliant idea of climbing on top of the wake boarding tower and flipping off into the water. We had a fun time taking turns doing tricks off the tower.

Friday night we drove to Henefer to watch their local fireworks. While we were waiting we played on the blow-up toys they had set up for the kids. All of us adults took turns taking Reed down the slides and we all got our fair share of bumps and bruises. Reed LOVED the fireworks and has been asking to watch more fireworks every day since then. Luckily for him we have the 24th of July to celebrate soon. We had a fun little weekend, and we enjoyed being with Brooks, Amber, and Brandon.
