We kicked off our summer vacation with a trip to downtown Meridian for the Dairy Days Parade with our favorite neighbors, the Summers! We got pizza from Chicago Connection and ate and watched the most darling parade I have seen in a long time!

Julie's Aunt and Uncle! They are practically the president and first lady of the Snake River Stampede!
This lady grabbed Julie and the parade stopped so they could dance The Twist! So much fun!
Since it is vacation, we couldn't just go home and go to bed.....so we went swimming!
Nothing like a little night swim to cap off the evening!
The next day we had the Compton side of the family over to celebrate the kids birthdays. We don't see these people near enough. The kids love to play together and we all really enjoy eating and hanging out! I am so happy to be a part of this great family.
Blowing out the birthday candles!
The Cryder and Compton Cousins!
