Fun times

These may deserve separate posts but they are just getting one. =)  We have been having fun lately!

The other day we went to the park with some of our favorite friends. There was a splash pad and a big field to play games. As well as the fun playground! I really didn't take many pics. Maybe next time. =)

We went to the Murray 4th of July parade and carnival.
The parade was really fun, the kids COULD have ridden in it with their dance studio but I decided to let them watch instead. (You don't get candy if you are ON a float)

There was a CAMEL in the parade!

We also went to the carnival but my camera died. We checked out some booths, saw what a pilgrim settlement was like, got sprayed with firehoses (chels caught it right in the cheek, not so fun after that), Chels got her face painted, Zach and Brandon did a water balloon toss, they did the fishing pond. So much stuff and so much fun but sadly no pics.

Brandon got called for work so we left the carnival and headed home. I planned on making cookies but I just COULD NOT get myself to turn the oven on after being out in the heat so long. So we hung out for a bit then my sister came over and we headed to fireworks. We stopped at Blimpies first and Brandon called and said he was done with work so he met us and went to fireworks with us.

We went to the Holladay city fireworks. They did a really good job. It wasn't super crowded, we got in and out easily and they had a great show.

Chelsea. I think this pic is awesome

Night pictures are fun

I finally made the cookies today since it wasn't as hot. We made a plate of them and took them to the fire dept.

It was a good 4th of July couple of days! I wish we could have spent time with my Mom and Ted but they were needed somewhere else. I hope you all had a wonderful time also!

I do not take enough time to appreciate my husband. He puts up with a lot from me. We have been married for 7 years. We would be heros in Hollywood. Anymore its pretty good in the real world. We struggle and have our ups and downs but we stick it out together. There are times that we don't put the effort in, its so easy to forget after awhile. And there is always something else that needs your attention. Some days he drives me so crazy that I want to scream. And while I am completely positive I do the same to him he handles it better. Most of the time.

 To be honest, I am kinda bat-shit crazy sometimes. My feelings get hurt WAY too easily and when it happens he is the one who hears about it. Last night I had a bit of a melt down over something that isn't his fault but he gets the brunt of my upset-ness about it. I cant talk to the person who causes this feeling in me and to be honest it wears me down. I don't understand the problem and I spend a LOT of time obsessing over it. It has been affecting my mood quite a bit. But when I freak out on Brandon he sits and listens and holds me and tells me I'm crazy but its ok. Sometimes its exactly what you need to move on from a toxic situation. I am able to realize that it still has to be resolved but I cant do that until the other person is ready. It still hurts and still sucks but I can spend less time stressing about it.

Thank you Brandon. I really do love you so very much. I hope you know that even when I am so out of my mind that I cant see straight. I am so lucky to have you. <3 <3
