4th of July and Tonsils

Monday morning we took Brooklyn to the hospital to have her tonsils removed. She did GREAT!! We were very proud of how brave she was. The night before (Sunday) we asked her what she wanted as her last normal meal for awhile, and she chose pizza. We made homemade pizza and the girls made their own. They love to help in the kitchen and making pizza is a highlight for them.
Monday we got up at 5 am (I don't know how I got up at that time) checked her in and she was in surgery at 7:30 and out by 7:50 am.

B' right after, still groggy.

We had a fun 4th of July. We invited some friends over to eat and watch the fireworks with us. We have a great view from our house so we set up all the chairs and blankets and served up rootbeer floats and enjoyed the show. We had a lil too much fun visiting and liting fireworks, we didn't get to bed until 1:30 in the morning.
The next day we woke up and drove about 40 mins. to Jappy's mom's in Soda Springs. The Fire Dept. has a tradition of spraying their foam out at the park and letting the kids play in it. The girls were timid at first but soon discovered the slippery fun. It was fun to watch all the kids play and even parents diving through it. I think we're going to try and take part in that activity every year.

Looks like you guys are having so much fun as always! I'm always jealous of the Jeppsen activities.... Glad B did well with her tonsils coming out and that you had so much 4th of July fun! And fun in the foam on the 5th too!

The foam looks like a blast. I'm from Lava and never knew soda did that. It look awesome.
