Parker and Grandma, fourth of July morning.
Duke wearing the captains hat that Chases parents brought home from the airport for Parker. He loves airplanes so it was so appropriate. Oh and plus the little delta plane too.
Here we are taking a bike ride. Parker loved the basket.
With daddy too!
Family picture on the bike. Parker is blowing a kiss.
Tara and Parker playing with the bubbles. He had so much fun with them.
And so did Spencer. If you can't tell, he is trying to be a fish. Good acting I would say.

And of coarse Tara helping Parker with his sweet tooth.
So I knew that Parker was going to have a hard time with the fireworks. Chase had tested a few of them before it got dark and Parker was not a happy camper. He would just scream and scream when he saw the lighter come out. So we decided that we would put him to bed before we did the big fireworks. It worked for a while, but then he woke up screaming and scared to death of the noises. I tried wrapping him up in a blanket and taking him outside, but he would not have any of that. I even tried watching from the inside, but he still was freaking out. Brings back memories of when I was little and would hide in the car, because I didn't like the noise. So the sparklers are the only thing we could get him close to.
As you can tell from the look on our faces, it was a struggle!
Here is spencer lighting off one of the illegal fire works. We had a couple of close calls. Tara and I were so nervous about these ones.

On our last night in Utah Chase and Channing decided to make a homemade slip n slide. They had so much fun on it, and it was quite entertaining to watch. Parker was a little reluctant at first about it, but finally took his turn going down.
