The 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays. It is just after my birthday and there are fireworks what's not to love? This year Michael was able to get a little time off work so we went camping on Gramma Happies land. Havala, Karli, and Carson camped with us. We set up camp the morning of the 4th and then we went back to O'ma and Papa's for a picnic and fireworks. We arrived back at camp after dark and just dropped into our beds. The next morning after an amazing breakfast, (what is it about camping that makes everything taste better?), we hiked to a waterfall. We had lots of fun hiking exploring cuddling and laughing. Havala took the boys horseback riding that evening, they loved it of course. O'ma and Papa joined us for dinner, yummy "Mt-Dew stew." We broke camp the next morning and went to church with Dan and Cami to be there when they blessed their baby, Asher. It was a whirlwind weekend but so much fun.

On the adoption front we are in a bit of a holding pattern. Michael and I are going to try to pay for as much of this as possible up front so we don't owe lots of money when our baby girl gets home. We are waiting for a check from the army that will cover the first instalment and then we are all ready to submit our paperwork.
