The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. (Well...that and Thanksgiving)

It's been almost 4 years since Dustin has celebrated in Salina, and almost 3 for me.

Way too long!

Since this year the 4th landed on a Sunday, all of the festivities were held on Saturday...

We had a great time going to the Gunnison and Salina parades, and the Salina rodeo...

Dustin and Cole drove a wrecker in the parade.

Cody and Kim

Brady and Kayla

Family BBQ

Mom invited all of us kiddos over for a BBQ on the "official" 4th.

It was SO yummy.

We ate, played in the yard, reminisced, and had LOTS of laughs.

Our parents should be so proud...;)

Love them.

Jace and Cody

That night we watched fireworks at Dustin's parents house.

Dez, Candi, Gage, Me, and Kez

I would dare say, Kez HATES fireworks...she shook the WHOLE time!

Measha, Darion, Shandee, and Taylen


Dustin turned 25 today.

We didn't go all out.

We had lunch, lounged around, and went to his softball games in Richfield...

His type of day...low key!

He MADE me promise not to buy him anything because he wanted to get shutters for the house instead. Always doing the practical thing...That's what I LOVE about him.

I made him a funfetti cake, his fave, and gave him a card.

As I have gotten older, I realize that less really is more!

Love you honey, I hope your day was everything you wanted. You are everything to me!;)

Better late than never...

April's Wedding

April and Rowdy got married June 5th.

I was her Maid of Honor, and I must say, it really was an honor.

We had a great time in Mesquite, and were so happy we were able to be a part of their special day.

April was such a gorgeous bride.

Love you guys! Congratulations!
