Sooo....Starting with the 4th!

After processing and recooperating from a bit of worry here and there over my boys, our out of town kids began to arrive. (Elder Holmes is fine, and after 10 days, Garen is home from the Hospital. You are all awesome for your prayers in our behalf).

We started at LAX the morning of July 4th, and had to wait an extra 2 hours since Heidi was sitting on the tarmac at Denver International with two babies by herself. Way harder for her than us. We went to my sister Jana's house for her blockparty in Lakewood. Thanks to Dejah for this photo collage.

After this adventure, we picked up Brendon and Steph in Ontario, and enjoyed the fireworks from our front yard with our kids. Great day, with more family time to come!

Looks fun. I didn't know Jana lived in Lakewood. My mom and dad grew up there, and my grandma is still there.

What fun to have your out of town kiddos around. It never lasts long enough though. I'm anxious to hear more.

I am glad that you had a nice 4th. I am also glad that Garen is out of the hospital. We didn't get time to visit yesterday. What was wrong with Garen? What an ordeal to go through.

have a good week. Love, Lura

Look like a great 4 th. Having family together is the best. Poor Heidi stuck on the plane like that with the kids.

Well, I hope that after all of the stress of Garen's hospitalization, Cody's political unrest, Heidi's ordeal on the plane, etc... that you got to have some rest and enjoy all of your kids at home!! Whew!! The pictures look fun!! How do you do that collage thing?? Miss you!! Love you!! Glad that things seem to be doing a lot better!!
