July 4th Fun

July Fourth was so much fun. Our town wasn't having a parade, so we went across the river, back to Virginia and found one. It was at 2:00 in the afternoon, and the sun was blazing. We were lucky to find a shady spot.

Handsome boys!

Cute girls!

God Bless America!

I gave up my tee time for this?

The parade was a blast, but we were dying from the heat. After a quick ice cream at McDonald's, we went home for dinner and to wait for the fireworks. The show that our town put on was AWESOME!!

Gotta love the pictures that kids take!

Monday we decided to hike Sugarloaf Mountain. The heat was stifling and the humidity was high, but the view was well worth it.

All in all, this was a wonderful holiday weekend. God Bless America and all the troops that sacrifice to protect it.

Summer Catch Up

The past few weeks at the Miller house have been crazy!

The last week of school, Bostyn had an awards ceremony. We were very excited to find out that her fellow classmates voted for her to receive the "Most Supportive to Classmates and Peers." She got several other awards, but that one was the most special. Bailee finished out the school year with straight A's! She had a fantastic year.

On Father's Day, we moved to not only a new house, but a new state! We no longer live in Virginia. We now live in Maryland. We were sad to leave our new friends behind, but hopefully it won't take long to make new buddies.

After getting settled, we took the kids to the Baltimore Aquarium. It was awesome! They have three sections of cool exhibits and even a dolphin show.

The new town that we live in offers a summer day camp program. I signed the girls up, so that they could start meeting other kids and get a jump on making new friends. It's a great program that offers crafts, games, sports and they even take the kids once a week to the community pool! The girls love it.

We are loving summer, but not used to the humidity. It has been in the 90's and 100% humidity! WOW. Big change from the dry heat in Utah. Maybe one day we'll get acclimated?
