Where's the Gun Show?

Our family is a huge fan of The Office. When Justin was home, he taught Bryson how to do the Gun Show. Justin would say, "Where's the gun show?" and Bryson would immediately put both hands behind his head to show off his muscles. Well, since Justin left on a mission for our church, Bryson has missed him very much. With the mere mention of his name, Bryson's "muscles" are out. It's has even progressed to happening when he sees someone that remotely looks like Justin. We love that he still remembers and thinks of his Uncle Justin. So when you see him next, just ask him, "Where's the Gun Show?"

4th of July!!!

I love the 4th of July and this year seemed to top them all. Everything went so smoothly and the day was really fun. We started it off at our church's annual pancake breakfast. The sun was scorching, but the food was deeeelicious! Then it was off to Chris's parents for their annual block party. Bryson loved waving the flags. He's very patriotic, you know.

The day was nice and warm, so Bryson helped Grandma fill the pool.

So of course, we could all stay cool.

The Galls had a big jumpy thingy in front of their house. Bryson finally got a turn when all the bigger kids found something different to do.

Their was a lot of good food.

And Grandma Debbie brought out her special bubble wands. The whole family loved them, but Bryson especially loved making "big bubbles."

Sorry we don't have pictures of the fireworks. Bryson has loved them up until this year. He went back and forth from being completely scared to completely in awe. He would cry and say, "Big Boom, Inside!" And then say, "Oooo, nice!" It was actually pretty funny. Chris kept moving back until they we in another parking lot. We hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

Oooo, So Handsome!

Bryson got a big boy haircut. This isn't his first, but it is the most drastic of them all. It also has played with his mind. With a big boy haircut, he has gained a big boy attitude. Terrible twos are coming a little early in our family. Bryson's vocabulary has exploded since his haircut. He mimics every word he hears and is putting three and four words together.
