We had a wonderful hot 4th of July. On the 2nd, everyone camped out at my parents house (The twins and I went home) and Ledger loved every second of it. He thought roasting marshmallows and sleeping with Dad in a tent was about the coolest he’d ever seen.
On the 4th, we made it to the Rexburg parade. (First time in years) Ledger had a blast with cousins and Uncle Mark and even tried a few pieces of candy. We spent the afternoon at my parent’s house, and later that evening went to my Grandparents for a BBQ.
This was the first year Pat and I could relax a little bit with Ledger running around next to a huge pond. He finally communicates and understands well enough, that after we put a life jacket on him, he was golden.
On the 5th, we had a Wightman Family Reunion. We kicked it off with running in the Color in Motion 5k which was an absolute blast! We will run in another one for sure. My mom watched the kids, and who knows how I got a clean freak child, but Ledger begged me to clean myself from the minute the race ended all the way home :)
We spent the rest of the day at my parents house. Four out of my mom’s five siblings and all their kids came. The little kids spent the afternoon in the water, and for dinner, dutch oven was served.
We also spent a lot of time at Patrick’s family. Our boys had so much fun playing with cousins they zonked for about two days straight!
Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July!
