The 4th of July!

We started our morning with a pancake breakfast at the church.
Cecily is in LOVE with Mark Krueger.  I really can't explain it.  I think Mark and Kat are both baby whisperers.
After the breakfast, we headed over to base for the festivities.  First things first, face painting!  If you do get there early and do that first, you'll be standing in line for two hours.
Eva cowboy-upping. :)  She wasn't too bad either.  She even did one hand for most of it.
Then there's Gabe...with is game face on.  That boy is crazy.
Of course, mommy had to give it a try.  They didn't even buck her off.  They just stopped the bull eventually and she hopped off.
Then on the the gladiator station.  Brother and sister going at it.
Mom and dad took a whack or two at each other too. :)
The bumper cars were probably our favorite.  I think we rode them about 10 times.
These two girls who are riding with our kids are from our ward.  They were super sweet with Eva and Gabe.
Hans cooling off in the shade while Ceci attacks him.
Cecily enjoying her freedom from the stroller.
We have some really good friends we hung out with.  The Bouknight family is amazing.  They have two little girls.  Their oldest, Michaela is probably going to marry Gabe.  :)  She's got such a spunky little attitude.  Gabe always tells her she's beautiful and then she says "thanks Gabe" then kisses him on the cheek.  He gets bright red.  It's the funniest thing to watch.  Jenny (the mom) is such a sweetheart.
This is Michaela next to Gabe.  It's not a very good picture of the two of them, but they had a blast with Michael (the dad) on the bumper car ride.  Michaela is telling her dad to "get 'um Dad".
