4th of July

This Fourth of July was all about exploring and creating new memories. I will admit I was thankful to have a full day with my family,  but part of me really missed Temple and our traditions that we had formed while we were there. So, I think this year was sort of bittersweet for me. 
We started the day with donuts and taking the kids to see How To Train Your Dragon 2. Nothing like starting your day with donuts and popcorn! After a local Fire Department in Katy was hosting an Open House. Tyler has as a huge love for anything involving Fire Stations and looks up to all Fire Firefighters. He has had this admiration for a while. Both Ty and GK had a great time exploring.... even in the heat! Well, we lasted about an hour. We left covered in sweat, so a trip to sonic for Happy Hour was a must. 
We were going to venture back out for Fire Works, but Tyler was complaining of is head and tummy hurting. He took a 3 hour nap in the early evening, which is not like him.... but woke up feeling so much better. I think he was tired and in need of some rest. Thankfully, we could see the fireworks from our backyard... they were far away, but you could still get the effect and the kids thought it was fun. 
Even though bittersweet this year, I am so thankful for the memories we created this year as a family. That is what this move has been about. One new memory at a time.
