4th of July Weekend

Matt's older brother, Tim, his wife Jenn, and their kiddos Jessie and Nate came out from Portland to celebrate the 4th of July weekend with us! We had a WONDERFUL time being with family and enjoying the holiday together. It struck me that 10 years ago, we celebrated the same holiday camping with all of Matt's siblings just 2 weeks before our wedding. It was so amazing to think that 10 years, and a bunch of kids later, we are together again.

Jonah, Nate, Noah and Caleb... Nate did a GREAT job being the oldest boy... the little boys all LOVED playing with Nate. They just idolized him!
Jessie was awesome with the kids, too! I can't believe she was just a baby in a high chair when Matt and I first started dating. Now, here she is, old enough to babysit my kids!

Tim and Jenn brought their super cute dogs, Toby and Shadow... The boys LOVED playing Puppies in their kennel!
On the 4th, we headed to Chief Timothy Park and played in the river. It was SO MUCH FUN! The day was super hot, so playing in the river was PERFECT!

Noah was our totally fearless swimmer!

I just can't believe how grown up Jessie is. She was 3 when she was the flower girl in my wedding, now here she is, growing up so fast. She pulled the Little Boys in the wagon as we walked to see the Fireworks.
