We went to Idaho (swan valley) for the 4th of July which is also Talan's birthday. We had a lot of fun. The boys love riding their dirt bikes and 4 wheelers. It was definitely a fun filled weekend for all. We had few mishaps which is odd for us. Usually all of our trips are full of mishaps and multiple problems. Its actually a wonder we ever leave the house. Last time we took the trailer and 4 wheelers out Matt lost the keys to the trailer which lead to going into town for bolt cutters. I hope one day we will be able to look back and think all these happenstances are funny! Anyways, Talan turned 3!!! I can't believe my little Talan is growing up. We all wore our army gear for the 4th to show our pride in America. Tyler looked like a little military man in his army garb while shooting his water gun. Talan was so excited for his presents the anticipation has been building for weeks. So when it came time to open presents I though he would be so excited over his much anticipated power glide scooter. No, no, he showed the most excitement over the card his Grandparents gave him which played music when opened and a chap stick we gave him. Why is it that the dumbest of things always captures the most emphasis?? Anyways, the kids loved the fireworks. I do to. I think there is something super special about fireworks. Oh well, a new day, a new dollar as my dad says. Back to real life.
