Can't believe I forgot to post!

It was Rachel's 6th birthday last Monday, July 7th! Happy Birthday big girl! We remembered to celebrate and have cake. . . just didn't get on here with as busy as our lives are! She chose some crazy, squiggly candles for her cake, and she picked out a "Happy Birthday Princess!" balloon at the grocery store. She chose pizza for dinner. :)

Here's Brandon and Rachel eating their free Birthday ice cream at Baskin Robbins, July 5th:

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, and Happy Birthday to my Dad!

We started off the day going to our Ward pancake breakfast at a park. The girls had lots of fun playing. Pretty much took the rest of the day easy, and took turns playing Wii Fit. Had veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs for dinner, then did fireworks outside on our driveway. Michaela had a little accident. :( They were doing sparklers, and after hers had burnt all out, she went and touched the hot stick. (Even after telling her to never touch up there.) Luckily I saw her do it, so I knew what happened and was able to take care of it right away. Had I not seen it and she just start crying, we would have had to take time to figure out what was wrong before treating it. It happened so quickly that I didn't have a chance to stop her before it happened. By the time I realized, she had already touched it and was about to cry. I grabbed her and ran her over to the water spigot on the side of the house and put her finger under the water. Everyone else was clueless and was wondering what was going on. Luckily, it's not too terribly bad of a burn, but still so sad to see my baby hurting. :( Hopefully taking care of it right away, and putting ice and medicine on it after we did the initial water will help it heal faster.


We found a Wii Fit! Brandon found one yesterday. He was coming home from work early, and decided to stop off at Best Buy just to see since he had some time. There were four just sitting there with nobody rushing to get them! *shock* So, he purchased one and brought it home. :) It's a great game. My muscles are soooooo sore now! This is MUCH better motivation to exercise!
