Happy 4th and 24th

This year was especially fun due to Justin and I having the same day off (which never happens). Our day started out at Grandma and Grandpa Millett's home for breakfast on the deck. It was so good. I do love it when dad cooks on his grills because it always tastes so good. I wish I would have remembered to take some pictures of our yummy breakfast but that would have made you all hungry and I didn't want to make you all wish you were there. He He He...JK. We then all packed up and went to the annual 4th of July Parade. I do have to say it was pretty funny that now the parade consists of a few floats and some truck for advertising. It just isn't the same. But, anyways Leah sure loved it. She had her own folding chair this year and she was so excited to be able to sit by herself and not have to sit on some one's lap. Here are a few picturs of the parade.
 Leah's happy smile...
 The fly over....cant have the 4th without this.
 After the parade we all went home to take some naps and prepare food. We then got together and had a BBQ at Grandpa and Grandma's Millett's house. We then went and watched the fireworks and then went back to Grandma and Grandpa's house and lit some sparklers. Of course Leah was fast asleep by this time so it was fun to watch Ashley's kids run around and pose for the camera and do tricks for grandma and grandpa. They were so cute...It was sure a fun way to end the day. Happy 4th of July everyone.

24th of July-

For the 24th of July this year we decided to go to Mom and Dad's home and do a BBQ. It was nice to sit outside and talk and eat some really good food. Thanks Dad for hosting the BBQ. Leah was sure excited when dad broke out the last of the sparklers from the 4th of July. Here are some pictures of Justin, Leah, and Garrett doing sparklers. 
 We even made homemade icecream. YUM! Leah sure Loved it!

Rowley Family Pictures

Due to everyone being able to come for the sealing, it was decided that we would do family pictures as well. Justin's family has not had family pictures taken for a long time so it was very needed. Thanks to Amber's sister Kandis we got some really good pictures. Here they are.
After they were done taking pictures Leah was just running round playing in the dirt so I got a few cute pictures of Leah. Here they are...

Rowley Family Sealing

Justin and I had the opportunity to go to Provo the first weekend in July and be a part of Justin's brother Jeff and his wife Laura, have their baby Jonas sealed to them in the Provo temple. They have been waiting for a year to have the adoption complete to be able to do so. We are so excited for them so Congradualations Jeff, Laura and Jonas. It was realy awasome that they were able to come up to Utah to have the sealing and that all of Justin's siblings were able to attend the temple. It was also great the Justin's grandmother a aunt were also able to attend. I was able to take a few picture of this great day. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
