We have had an incredible July this year (except for the weather!). While most of the country complains of record heat I have been heard on multiple occasions asking when summer will reach us! It has been crazy and Mother Nature hasn't decided if it is April or July, as she goes back and forth on what kind of weather to send our way!
The first few days of the month found me (Lindsay) prepping for a new little baby boy (yes, another one!). We love boys around here. I got the house cleaned and ready, with the help of my amazing Mom and Grandma, and we were ready for a hospital stay! On the 4th, we had family (and we have a lot) over for a potluck BBQ and then we spent over an hour doing fireworks (which we did not finish entirely because kids just don't sit much longer). Once everyone left for the night (including Connor and Colby) David and I were off to bed with our alarm set for 4am!
MOST of the cousins
Happy Piro David and his firework collection
Mom brought a lantern and we all wrote our wishes on it and sent it up into the sky!
Here is Most of the gang, ready for the show.
Connor and Andrew lovin' the fireworks.
Colby was in heaven all night. He had the funniest facial expressions. It was AWESOME.
Colby again (this is how he was the entire time)
Colby and I. I love this little guy.
I wanted to do a picture experiment and get the boys in pictures w/ the fireworks.
Here is Connor.
Getting ready for a baby
Apparently David was excited and just couldn't wait, so here is a picture of the back of Dr. Gill!
Happily waiting while they cut open my insides.
See! Told you they were cutting open my insides (I WARNED YOU!)
There is a baby in there!
Welcome to the world Channing!
My first peek!
Big brother Connor loved Channing from the start.
Colby had to sneak a kiss.
Dr. Gill stopped in to see how everything was going.
Foot print time.
These big brothers had to be involved in everything. I love it!

Everyone was tired out after a few hours!

Cute little guy
Connor wants to do it all, even burping the baby.
Daddy rocks! Super water-slide time.
They even started building a play structure during David's week off!
Channing's 2nd bath
We love that our little family has grown and we are now a family of 5! We are raising some awesome future missionaries, husbands and fathers. I couldn't ask for more! We are blessed!
