July 4th on July 1st

I felt blessed to have good neighbors yesterday. This past week I told Ian that we needed to find a good interactive toy for Liam this weekend because our little genius is bored with the stagnant toys he has. Anyway, my next door neighbor, Jayme, called yesterday saying she had a bag of toys her two boys had outgrown... so she was sending 5 year old Dylan over to drop it off. I didn't think much of it until I opened the bag. They were cool toys that light up, move, play music, etc!!! No need to go shopping for toys (for awhile).


The other reason it was nice to have friends next door yesterday was because we had picked up a wimpy pack of fireworks and didn't have anyone to watch them with... except Liam of course. We drove up to the house and saw Jayme and the kids doing their own wimpy fireworks, so we walked over and ended up having a nice evening with them.
Liam was startled by a few fireworks, but mainly mesmerized!

Cute pics.... That was nice of your neighbor to give Liam the neat toys,he looks like he will have fun. Cute little outfit that Liam had on,he looks so grown up. The Boys looked like they had a good time together. We had our 4th of July potatoe salad today. I guess the 4th will get strung out over a few days. Have a happy 4th.We love you and miss you,so thank-you for the pictures.

I'm so jealous that you can light fireworks off in your front yard! Lucky for us the fireworks display for the town will be across the street from our apartment. I haven't seen fireworks for sale anywhere here. I still remember our last fourth out there- on the boat with the bugs. :) Utah is the best for fireworks though - I think Orem alone puts on 3 fireworks displays over the summer. Fireworks are a blast!

These pictures look great and your neighbors seem wonderful! Oh and I need our recipe for Potatoe salad- it's the only kind that Matt will eat. :) Love ya

Liam really is starting to lose his baby look and beginning to look like a little boy. Love his outfit!
