First time by myself with two kids - July 4 parade

I took Joshua and Jacob to the 4th of July parade on the 5th (haha, that's Utah for you:) It was a bit nerve racking for me to leave the house with a 2 year old and 3 week old since James had to work, but I did it and came back home in one piece. Jacob even fell asleep in the car seat on the way to the parade which was a first for him. Joshua had tons of fun and spent much of his time sitting on my shoulders so he could actually see the parade.

Surprisingly, one of his favorite parts was the group of fiddlers. He had fun tapping his foot (which he is trying to do in the above photo) and clapping his hands with the crowd.

And here's an additional photo of joshua's blue eyes, just bc I think they are awesome!

Where's a picture of Baby Jacob?? Go Rachel for being so adventurous going out with two kids, one only 3 weeks old! You are amazing. I hope that we can see each other in a bit over a week when we're in Utah!!

You are a brave mama! I usually leave the house on the 3rd week but I do it by myself. Love you Rachel!
Thanks for everything,
