The 4th (a little late)

I just loaded these pictures onto my computer, and thought Stella looked so cute!  We had a great 4th of July this year.  We went to the Bass's from our stake.  They had so many huge fireworks, that we were looking up into the sky for over an hour.  Crazy, but a lot of fun!

a little friendly competition

Yesterday, Andy challenged me to a watermelon eating competition.  I am always game for a little competition, and when it involves eating watermelon (one of my very favorite foods) I can't resist.  Well, we decided half way through that neither of us would ever win at a fair - even though we were literally shuving the watermelon into our faces.  We both ended up with sore lips... it's hard to open your mouth so wide while violently trying to scarf cold juicy watermelon, but it's really fun!  The winner got to pick what movie we watched last night.  Well, I am sure you will be able to guess who won... we watched Rescue Dawn.  I was really really close though.  Barely missed beating him, and I think it is because I had a hard time not laughing.  P.S.   It's really tough to eat watermelon quickly while laughing. 

By the way, Andy's piece looks bigger, but it was just wider, mine was taller.  Mine weighed more in fact, but I thought I would be able to eat it better because it wasn't as wide, so I picked it.  Maybe I picked wrong. Or maybe I just married a really superb watermelon eater.

I think this is a little more fun than tagging... at least a little different!  My sister in law nicole did this on her blog and it was so fun to write some memories down.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together (either with just me, just Andy, or the both of us!).  It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.  It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.  If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.
