Owen and I planted sunflowers again this year and they are so pretty. However last week we had a wicked storm come through and it broke many of our tall ones. There are still tons blooming but the effect is not as pretty with most of them laying down. I love to cut them and bring them inside. We grew a few different varieties,  my favorite is the last ones, the orange is so beautiful. 

Our baby chicks are all doing well, we ended up with five!  Yesterday we had one get out and he was not able to get back in the house with his Mom and siblings. Owen and I spent 1/2 hour trying to catch him, and finally reuinited him with his family. Only to find that a few hours later he was out again, but that time he was easier to catch and Owen did it all by himself. I am going to try to get pictures this afternoon, the black and white one is adorable, reminds me of a penguin. We had a great 4th of July, our plans of eating Mexican and bowling were changed when we discovered that both places were closed. So we ate at Two Guys Grill and then went to the park with the kids to watch the fireworks. It worked out perfectly, we found an awesome spot to see the fireworks they put on at the  battleship and the boys loved it. Wyatt kept saying "fire coming", they both enjoyed playing with our friends two girls and now all Wyatt can talk about is "Anna Grace".  The sweetest thing was when we were walking back to our trucks, I looked back and saw Owen holding his friends Katie's hand.  I think the both the boys have crushes!  It was such a fun night.  I think that was the first time I have seen fireworks that close in about 10 years.
