4th of July 2008
JnJ was kind to us this year in that I got an additional holiday day for the Fourth of July weekend. So on July 3rd we went to Wild Rivers a big water park here in Irvine. The kids loved it and Annie and I really enjoyed the lazy river. They had a total kids section with slides and kiddie pools that Sierra and Stefan could ride on. Stefan and I tried one of the big mountain slides but he got denied at the top of the hill by the attendant for being too short. As we hiked back down the hill smoke started coming out of his ears as his faced turned red he turned to me and said "I could take him" I believe referring to the lifeguard. None the less it was a fun day in the sun although we got a little too much and came home with sporadic burns on spots where not enough sunscreen had been applied. This morning I went to play Ultimate with the boys and Annie took the kids to the ward pancake breakfast. After I got home and showered we went to the Lake Forest 4th of July parade. It was quite a parade lasted 1.5 to 2 hours, we were baking again in the sun but the kids loved it. We sat with the friends who just moved into our complex and later they are coming over for a barbeque and I think we may go watch the fireworks with them tonight across the street and the Sun and Sail club where they shoot them over our man made lake. Hope everyone is having a great 4th we are blessed to live in such a wonderful country, Thank you to all who have served or are serving to protect our freedoms.
