Happy 4th of July!!

This will be little Joseph's first 4th of July and Jopes and my first 4th of July here in Rexburg (we've always gone to Idaho Falls to watch the big firework show). We think there's going to be a parade on Main Street in the morning, so we want to go watch that. We are going to have our own little barbeque for dinner; hot dogs, corn on the cob, potatoe chips, and pork and beans. After dinner, we are going to play with some fireworks... it should take about 15 minutes. Joseph has some flowers from a LONG LONG time ago. We'll use them up, and then we're done! Inbetween the morning parade however, and dinner, we have no idea what we are going to do. :D We'll have to let you know when the day is done.
Thanks to this holiday, we didn't have any school Thursday and Friday of this week. Yay! Other than school and work around the complex, we really haven't been up to much... just watching and enjoying little Joseph every other moment!
We were out watering the lawns the other day, when Jopes got Joseph to laugh a whole bunch! It was the cutest thing ever! I was holding Joseph facing out and Jopes stood in front of us. He'd turn so his back was toward us and then whirl around and say hello! to Joseph and he would break into the cutest little laughter. We couldn't get enough of it!
We are really looking forward to our trip down to Utah... we'll get to see both sides of the family! Seth and Stacie are getting married, which we couldn't be more thrilled about, and Mike is coming home from his mission in Denmark that same week! 13 more days!
