Max is an awesome big brother. He loves helping with Sam, hugging, kissing and loving. And Sam can't get enough of Max either! He thinks he is hilarious. He makes for a good audience for a hyperactive 3 year old.
Max was in line waiting to go on one of those bouncy things at the Provo Freedom Festival. He as always was way excited for an opportunity to bounce. I mean, he has been bouncing ever since he was a little baby and could find some springiness in the fatty flesh of his mommies legs and tummy. Really though, the best part of this picture is the anonymous little girl with her hands on her hips looking up at Matthew. I have no idea who she is, but she is super cute!
This is a pic of Max and I waiting to go on the 'Tornado'. Max wasn't too keen on the idea once he saw how high the thing spins around. But we had a couple of really cute little boys that were trying to reassure Max that it wasn't really that scary, actually it was prett fun. Max didn't cry or freak out or anything like that, but his face was priceless once the ride was in full swing. I think that it was the first time that he has ever felt his stomach do that flittery thing that it does when you are defying gravity. Matthew was next in line to ride with Max, but Max had had enough with just one ride.
We captured this moment while Max was in another bouncy thing. It is always kind of a miracle for me to capture a pic like this one. Taking into account a slowish shudder speed, and a mommy that almost always misses that priceless pic, but I can always remember it because the pic that I got was the face right after the smile..
Max and Becca with the Sparklers. They LOVED them!!!! It's not a 4th of July Party without Sparklers!
We had an awesome 4th! The Provo parade was fun, we had lunch with friends, went to a Tea Party, had a great nap, hit the Freedom Festival for dinner and rides, and then had some fireworks and treats with more good friends!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
