4th of july/birthday party and other stuff

Cambria had her first friend birthday party, and she loved it! I am only doing friend birthday parties every few years for my kids, so when they get a party we can spend more and have more fun. It was hard inviting kids because every house in our neighborhood has a bunch of kids, and she has friends from church, t-ball, and preschool. So we ended up with a lot of kids, but it was fun.
I didn't think to take pictures until they had already been playing for an hour and had stopped to eat. We had hot dogs, cheetos and cupcakes. I didn't get pictures of the cupcakes either because they got eaten to fast.
The people who own this set it up at 8:30 in the morning and didn't pick it up until about 9:00 that night. We seriously played outside ALL day.

Cambria's favorite part was opening her gifts, she got a lot of cute things.

After the party we had family come over and play.

I have no idea what I am going to do when Ashlynn turns 5, it has to be as much fun as this was.
She loves yogurt, she always licks the bowl clean.
I saw Cambria doing Ashlynn's hair the other day, how cute is that?
A while ago I posted pictures of our garden. This is our first time growing anything, and next year we will do a few things differently, but we actually have stuff growing! This is our huge zucchini plant.
And here is a zucchini, it looks good!
A red pepper. Well it will be red someday...
and carrots. We also have green beans, peas and cucumber but so far we can't see any.

4th of July part 1

We went 4 wheeling before the 4th of July but I just haven't blogged in a while. Cambria and Ashlynn love riding around. It was a hot day, but we had fun.

My kids are chickens when it comes to water. Corey and i took them to the splash park in Rexburg and they only played where the little babies play...
Cambria went on this one time but when the water splashed like this she just screamed and would never go on again.
They love swimming in their pool in our backyard and playing on the swing set.
On the 3rd we had a camp out in Blackfoot.
These were the lanterns I got for Cambria's birthday. They are like the ones in Tangled, they were so fun to watch.
We always go to the parade, it was kinda cold and windy at first but then the clouds went away and it was a nice day.

Cambria said she had a good birthday. I can't believe she is 5. I usually post something on the girls birthdays but we were so busy that I forgot so here are a few of my favorite pictures of Cambria. Today Cambria and I sat for a while looking at old pictures and videos of her, and this is the one that made us laugh the most.
