We had a fun and busy 4th of July weekend! We started the weekend with a cousin playdate swap
Alli, Hannah & Lizzie came here to run in the sprinklers and Isaac went to Beccas house to play games all afternoon.
Later that night Joey & Gidget dug a big hole and went under the house! It was quite the production to get them out! Emily was nervous and scared that they were stuck forever! 

Saturday we took the ski boat to Jordanelle for a day on the lake. We had fun swimming, eating a picnic lunch and wake boarding etc... The water was cold, but it felt refreshing! 

We headed home for the Lake and got ready to go to Provo for the annual 4th of July Hawkins family party!  We had dinner, saw cousins, aunts, uncles etc... and then sat on the grass all evening waiting for the fireworks to start.
It's one of our favorite traditions of the year! 

Sunday we went to church and then came home and packed up to go to Eden, UT. Our friends the Keele family have a condo there and they invited us to stay there for a couple of days with them.
So we loaded up Danny's new fishing boat and headed to Pineview Reservoir. We spent 2 days with them and it was SO much fun!
We spent one full day at the lake kayaking, swimming , boating, fishing, building sand castles etc... it was a beautiful day and so pleasant for everyone. 

After a day at the lake we had dinner and then went swimming at the pool near their condo. The kids love to swim!
The 4th of July we went to the parade in Huntsville, and then enjoyed the other festivities in the city. It was a great, relaxing get away and so much fun to spend time with the Keele family.
