Today is like Christmas...except it's the beginning of the Fourth of July weekend. Every time Rachel gets to visit us, I feel like it's Christmas. One day I will convince her to move closer, but until then, I will have to settle for the weekends when she can manage to sneak away from Rexburg. The last few times she has visited us, Lincoln has been enamored; he watches her talk, smiles at her, and - laughs! I think Rachel has gotten him to laugh more than I have! It's adorable to watch them together, and I can't wait to pick out fireworks!
