Family Reunions and Fourth of July

We had two reunions for my mother's family in Blackfoot over fourth of July weekend and both of my sisters and their families stayed at my house. I had 10 extra people staying in the basement. Thank goodness I have the extra room. It was fun to have the company and Ethan enjoyed playing with his cousins. I didn't get out my camera so sorry no pictures. I think Kathryn and Lisa took lots of pictures. Check out their blogs listed under brothers and sisters to the right.

Saturday from 10am-6pm we were at reunions and then we went to my Grandparents house and did fireworks. My sister shared some pictures. Uncle Nathan was helping. Spencer was working all weekend. :( This was Ethan's 1st time ever seeing or doing fireworks. He sure liked it!

Ethan's 2nd Birthday

Well Ethan did have croup so we postponed his party till the following Wednesday. Spencer and I did take him birthday shopping on his actual birthday. Ethan was coughing but seemed to be in a good mood. Ethan picked out a wagon with blocks, a swimming pool, a beginner golf set, a "choo-choo" flashlight, and a Cars potty.

I think the potty was more for me. I want to begin potty training with him soon. I'm not going to push it but Ethan seems interested in the potty and tells me "poo-poo" and "pee-pee" alot.
For his birthday we went to Leo's Place. It's a pizza place with a playground and some coin operated rides and a little arcade. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Afterwards we came home and played in the pool, had cake and ice-cream, and opened presents.

A new outfit from Jolene and Jeremy's family, a dart gun from Hilary and Bryan's family, and a little train set from Cook Grandparents.

He got board books, puzzles, clothes, a push airplane, building blocks and buckets, and other toys from Gale grandparents the beginning of June.
My child is BLESSED! Thank you all for the birthday presents and birthday wishes.
