Wednesday was the 4th of July and we headed over to Brennan's grandparent's house to celebrate with his grandparents, his dad and step mom, siblings, and some cousins and aunts. It was a beautiful afternoon and his grandma and grandpa have an awesome yard. It was a fun day spent visiting outside. We even got a few family pictures taken.
(I stole these first few pictures from facebook, so I'm sure the quality isn't great.)

Plus wives and kids.
Plus his dad and Jennifer and his step sisters, Abbey and Kellie.

On Thursday Brennan went to see the new Spiderman movie with Quinton and his dad and I headed to Salt Lake to spend some time with Caleb and his boys. Then I met up with Brennan and his family at the bowling alley after dinner. From there we headed to the Purple Turtle for some shakes. Luckily enough my cousin, Alex, was able to meet us there. We had been able to visit a little at grandpa's funeral but we were hoping to see him again before we left and this just worked out.
Tatum let him hold her even with that scary beard.
The whole group at the end of the day. Minus Jentri, who had to leave early for work. And Jennifer's parents who had already left.
Here is Melanie putting Tatum's toes in the fountain.
We had dinner with Caleb's family and we all went swimming that night. It was fun to see Gavin and Henry interact with Tatum. Usually we are together will all of the cousins so they are too busy playing. But when it was just Tatum they loved playing with her and showing off all their tricks.

We left at 4 am the next day (Sunday) and got home around 12:30 am on Monday. Whew. What a trip. It was a blast. We got to see so many people that we care about, do lots of fun things, and we were sure to burn the candle at both ends. I'm not sure if we have quite recovered yet, but we are getting there.
