July 24th...

July 24th is a special day in Utah. Its the day they celebrate the pioneers and remember all the state has gone through. Its so fun to go to the big parade, see fireworks and have fun family time. July 24th is also a date I will never forget for another reason to. July 24th 2008 is the first day that Kael came home from the hospital. It had been FOREVER that he had been in the hospital it seemed and it was so surreal to take him out of that hospital and really be bringing him home. I remember wanting to RUN out of the hospital doors. I rode in the back the whole way home making sure Kaels little head didn't fall and that he was able to breath. It was seriously one of the most AMAZING days ever! We had so many hopes, dreams and so much love that day. Oh what a day to remember. Its so surreal  now sitting on the same parade route remembering where we were 4 years ago and then heading up after the parade to pick him up. No words can explain. I am ever grateful for the time we got to have with Kael and that he did make it home for some time all though it was nothing close to long enough I am grateful that we did get some time. Such a fighter he was... Love and miss that little guy! This year we were sure to honor him we visited his grave and at the parade I wore his bracelet. I also wore the red bracelet in honor of sweet Ruby it matched my outfit just so nice. Hoping they keep each other company in heaven!

Love that bracelet! So cute! We didn't even celebrate the 24...literally at all. Sad I kinda forgot it was even that day. My birthday was monday and both days were spent planning for Girl Camp not celebrating! HA
