Marcus and His 4th of July 'Sparklish'

Here you see us the first evening of the visit where Trenton and Marcus had made whipped cream together for the celebration of Marcus's 4th birthday. While 'the kids' did the art project, he 'played' a game. He does SO well entertaining himself.
Below is a picture of Alana (outside) taking a picture of Marcus and Grammy (inside)
watching the vintage car parade going by our house.

We strolled to the nursing home on the next block to watch the parade two of the days. There were a lot fewer people, so the kids could run into the street to pick up candy.
Marcus loved waving the flag at all the princesses.

Oh, he looks SO tired after the late night of whatever went on Saturday night. This is Sunday morning, and he had borrowed my little pink knife to cut up the front cover of the Netflix.
He did this for 45 minutes...completely quiet behind Grampa Jay working on his Sunday school lesson.

There were 4-wheeler rides of every kind and combination on Sunday, the 4th, out at the ranch. Here you see Evan checking the gas tank. Marcus and Cheyanne were in awe of Evan's knowledge and abilities. And, for a 7-year old, we are too!

Grampa always lets the kids 'drive' too.

I love that I caught the fire on these marshmellows!
This was just before we went up on the hill with what Marcus called 'the sparklish'.

That's it on the 4th of July...I guess, since this is the LAST day of July, it is good.
I found a real live cucumber in the garden this morning, so that will be my next feature.
I pray this blesses you, my son. I love you, Kelly!

It looks like you guys had a wonderful time! I love the picture of you in the window.

Can't wait to see you Friday!
