Best Summer Party, Part 2

Now that I've said the Stringham's party is one of the kids' favorite events of the year, this will sound a little redundant, but they also love the annual 4th of July picnic at the Smolka's house up Emigration Canyon.

They love the sandbox, the swing-set, and the huge yard.

But most of all, they love the zip-line. This year Rob and Jake had a pretty good system going. Rob would help the kids onto the seat and give them a big push-off...

And Jake stood at the bottom of the hill to catch them.

He'd pull them back up to the top to reload.

They all rode again...

and again...

and again.

No wonder these girls mob Jake whenever they see him. What a great uncle.

The girls tried to pull off mad faces when we told them it was time to stop and then, to add insult to injury, made them pose for a photo.

But they didn't last long...

And soon turned silly.

Enjoying the blessings of the good life, grateful for those who paid the price.
