So Brandon got a new car, but it came without a stereo. He's been going crazy with boredom driving all over town everyday with nothing to listen to. Being the good wife that I am, I went on ebay and bought him a stereo. Then, the problem arises that we have no instructions on how to install this stereo and we don't want to spend the money to have someone else do it. We waited until the kids were to bed and we went out in the garage armed with a small table lamp (gives good light), an installation guide (printed off the internet), and a pile full of tools. As I'm sitting in the sauna of a garage with sweat dripping down my back and I'm staring at all these different colored wires, I realized that I was kind of bored and miserable, but I didn't care because Brandon and I were doing it together. We did get the stereo installed and it works great.

Denton and Julia had their friends Lucy and Samie come over and play. We all wore pirate masks. Julia didn't want to keep hers on very long...
After putting on the mask myself, I realized they're not very comfortable.

Crazy Brandon and the other boys jumped off of a very high cliff.
Chrissy and I jumped off a lower cliff. Still scary but very fun.
Jed up top and Josh diving in.
Denton and his friend Ethan riding the tubes like big kids.

Brandon took his boards on Mon. July 21st. The test took 8 hours. We are both so relieved that he got that over with. On Wed. July 23 I got a phone call that was for Brandon to confirm his table for 2 at a really nice restaruant inside Red Rock resort. I thought it was so weird, so I *69 it and found out it was the number to the clinic where Brandon is doing rotations. I started to text him all kinds of questions. He was giving me little clues back. And then, I had an order of cinisticks and pizza delivered to my door and a note that was supposed to say, "You are being TREATED to a fancy date." When I asked Brandon what the pizza was about he told me that was dinner for the kids. He would be bringing the babysitter over at 6:30 and he and I would be going out for dinner and a movie. I was so shocked that I thought maybe he had cancer or something terrible. Turns out, he just wanted to take me out for getting through the last 2 years. We had so much fun and I was totally impressed he made all the arrangements for that last week without me even knowing.

On the 4th we lit some little fireworks in front of our house then we went to Anthem Hills Park to watch the big ones in the sky. Denton was worried about the noise so he kept his hands over his ears from the time he got out of the car until the time he got back in. We all loved being at the park and even the kids liked watching the fireworks.
On the 5th I took an early flight to Salt Lake to go to my nephew's funeral.

We had a ton of fun in our little 10 foot pool in the backyard. Denton would swim for hours and hours if I would let him. Julia, on the other hand, would rather just chill in the swing. Too bad our pool popped last night haha.
