Surprisingly enough we didn't have anything going on the 24th of July weekend. We got a lot of editing caught up and we also took some time to spend time as a family. On Friday the 22nd we went to the Handcart Days Parade. Chico enjoyed it a little bit but wasn't aggressive in getting the candy so he got a lot less than the other kids around him. Luckily a nice guy next to us noticed and encouraged his kid give some to Chico. :)
Grizzly was very hot the whole time and so I fanned him the whole time but he still was very flushed.
I love this next pictures with his cute little hands clapping for something. He probably doesn't even know why he's clapping, he's just joining in with the crowd. So cute. :)
One of our favorite parts of the parade:
This tractor came through near the end and Chico said, "I want to see more tractors." Chico knows what the good stuff is. :)
After the parade we headed over to the same park we had Chico's party at. When we pulled up Chico remembered and said, "Hey, where is everybody?" Sorry kid, no presents and tons of attention this time!
BUT there was beautiful lighting for pictures and Brent had the time of his life taking pictures of the people he loves most. These are just a few of them. :)
He is pretty skilled at crawling on his feet instead of his knees when it's a weird textured surface.
Chico really wanted to play on that Big Wheel. He was asking if we could go home and get his. When we told him no he just sat and stared longingly at it.
After that I stole the camera from Brent and took the rest of these:
Those pics below of Griz in the sand are from this same night. There were just so many that I thought they deserved a post of their own.
