4th of July Weekend

We had a fun and very busy 4th of July weekend.  It started off with going to the Boise parade on Saturday morning.  Since Andrew works on Saturday and I wasn't brave enough to take the boys by myself, I talked my friends Elizabeth & Tory and their kids to come with me.  We all had  fun time. 
As soon as Andrew got home from work, we headed to his Cousin's wedding.  It was at a farm close by.  At one point, Andrew laid Bauer down on a blanket to change his diaper and Deker insisted on laying by him.
Because all of Andrew's family was in town for the wedding, on Sunday, we had a BBQ at our house.  A couple of weeks ago, I got the idea to make our own flag shirts.  I told Andrew my idea and using things I already had, we make flag shirts for each of us.  I think they turned out pretty cute. 
A few weeks ago, I saw on a website called Make it and Love It, a fun way to make a Flag Cake.  I saved the link and made it to have after the BBQ.  It turned out pretty good and tasted even better. 
I think Deker really liked it, at least he looks like he enjoyed it. 
On Monday evening, we went to Swan Falls Dam and roasted Hot Dogs and then went fishing.  Keagan caught his very first fish, which happened to be the only fish that was caught that night.  Unfortunately, I forgot the camera, so I don't have any pictures.

Congrats, Keagan--you will have to teach Dan how to catch fish now. I'm in the mood for a good fish fry!

You never cease to amaze me, Brenda. You are so creative and everything you make always turns out so cute, whether you are sewing or cooking or anything else!
