July 4th

This week was a very busy week in preparation for Sam comming to visit for the holiday weekend.  My parents and my sister were here for four days visiting and helping me with some last minute things around the house. 
John, Sam and her friend Ohmie got to the house pretty  late on Friday.  There were a lot of events going on around town this weekend. 
Saturday we went to the parade which was right down the street from us.  All we had to do was go to the corner to watch it.  The parade was pretty cool, it was everything that you picture when you think of a small town parade.  Then we went to the Civil War reinactment.  Jason slept through the whole thing even the canons going off right in front of us!  We ate lunch at the VFW bbq and some of us had good food and others had crappy food.  We came back to the house and played on our new trampoline.  We had bbq tri-tip for dinner with green salad corn on the cobb and a mixed fruit salad. 
Sunday we went to Mt.  Lassen and played in Lake Manzanita.  It was pretty fun for it being our first time to Lassen.  Sam and Ohmie made a chicken stir fry for dinner that night.  Wth noodles green salad and garlic bread. 
Monday we took Sam to Burney Falls.  After that we went to Lake Britton and rented paddle boats.  We had a great time playing in the water.  John, Sam and Ohmie left that afternoon to go back to Brentwood.
