4th of July

 This year we got to go to Cody, Wy again for the 4th of July.  We haven't been for a few years since we had Hansen.  It is just a fun place to go for the 4th and the company isn't too shabby either.  Jon's dad and his wife Linda live there and we had a great time.  Here is Hansen at the parade.  They put on a great parade every time, but it was just so hot this year.
 My little family getting ready for the parade to start.
 Jon, Hansen, Jobi and Grandpa Roger
 This is a long line of pack mules all hooked together.  It's really cool in person.
 They had 2 bat mobile replicas

 Look how much fun they are having?!?!  -This was after the parade.
 This cute little lady is so much fun.  Linda and I always go out shopping and find cool stuff.  She always shows me a good time and I love to be with her.  Thanks Linda!
 Wait - something isn't quite right in this picture.
 The last 2 times we've been in Wyoming for the 4th, they've had the Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard.  They are the only ones in the U.S.  It is so cool to see.  Gives me chills and makes me almost cry everytime I see it.

 Jobi is going to be as tall as Uncle Sam someday soon.  So funny!
 Look at us all enjoying each others company.  Relax - we are on vacation.
  At the airport
 Hansen is super helpful with the dishes
 Ha - a little one and a big one!
 Cute pair
 Grandpa has always had a problem with biting

We had to rent a car for the ride home and we got a mini van.  Jobi had so much room and he fell asleep.  Everyone was wanting a mini van after that trip.  They are pretty roomy and nice with kids.  I just can't do it though.  We had such a great time.  Thanks Grandpa and Grandma!  You guys always show us a great time and spoil us.  Can't wait to come back.
