two + two= FOUR!

Yes, we found out today that we are expecting twins. What a shocker! I have been pretty sick this time around and was thinking it was just that I'm over 30 now, so it's kicking my butt. Nope, it's the extra hormones. I'm so glad that my parents could watch the kids so Trent could come with. It was pretty exciting!

We will now have an adventure on our hands as we double our brood!

Happy 4th of July!

The summer heat has kicked in here in Idaho and it has been HOT! Around 100 degrees the last few days so we have been finding ways to cool off. So we bought a little pool for the backyard that the kids can cool off in.

After cooling down a bit, we headed to the God and Country Fireworks in Nampa. They are always a few days before the fourth so we kick off the celebrating early!

Then for the 4th, we went to the parade here in town and the kids loved getting candy thrown at them. After the parade we went to Eagle Island State Park with my parents and Matt's family, for some swimming in the river, BBQ and a few water slides.

Nick and Bailey went down the slides all by themselves and loved it! They want to go back soon!

That evening our little town had an amazing fireworks show that we could see from our house. Afterwards we let off our own fireworks and the kids loved every single minute of it...especiallyly Nick who is just like his dad and seems to LOVE fireworks!  What a fun way to celebrate our freedom, we had a wonderful 4th of July...even if it wore us all out!
