Year in Review- Part Three (VERY image heavy!)

July 2009



I started the month with two of my dearest, bestest girls visiting, and we had a great time!

We went to a rodeo dance to celebrate 4th of July weekend!

We ate at Hugo's a million times! (mid-bite! haha)

We watched the 4th of July Parade from Hank's Dad's place! They always invite the "old folks" to come from the senior center for these choice seats. It is soo adorable to see them all waving flags and cheering, right in the middle of the action!

cute old people

It was a summer of Amber Joy! She was home all summer and I loved every last bit of it. This picture makes me laugh everytime- it was such a funny moment.

this picture makes me laugh, this moment was too funny

We took the new houseboat out for a week, and it was a lot of fun! We go to Lake Powell often, and always have the best time. Hank and I both love the water, and the houseboat literally feels like we're on a house! Hank's mom and step-dad always fly their plane there, but we elected to drive a car so we left a day later and met them.
