North Dakota Petting Zoo

 We did an event in Mott, North Dakota.  I am NOT a fan of North Dakota. The sun comes up INSANELY early (like 4 am early), it's hot, and flat--not even a small hill in sight. But, my girls sure did like the animals in this little petting zoo! Bugga manned the camera, I'll spare you most of the pictures that she took, but here are a few.

Our July 4th fireworks

Over the 4th of July, the kids and I were at home for camps and such. So we went up and spent the day with Grandma Charlene and Grandpa Brent, who were camping with some of our other family. We had a fun time, but missed out on doing fireworks. (Silly fire bans!)  We met back up with David in Duck Valley, Nevada the next weekend for a Pow-Wow. Since we were on the reservation, fireworks were legal. And Nevada didn't have a fire ban. So we bought a bunch and had our own fireworks show!

We shot Roman Candles,

had the biggest sparklers I have ever seen,

 And a bunch of mortars, smoke bombs, flowers, and whizzers.  We had a great time lighting them all off.  Then one of the owners of the fireworks stands came out and put on a HUGE display!

I think we did a pretty good job celebrating!
