4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone! We hope your holiday was as enjoyable as ours. We had fun at the Murray City parade, flying kites, BBQ'ing, balloon launching, water fighting, and watching fireworks. 
In the evening, we were able to share some stories with each other of parents and grandparents who fought in wars to protect our liberties. We are so grateful for all that they did to make our current freedoms possible.

 Deaun is an old soul. She really seemed to get the significance of the day:

Fiona (aka Aunt Jemima):

Sabrina- very happy with the candy loot she collected at the parade:

The sparklers made them a little nervous...

Our front yard firework show:

Watching the firework shows around the valley. We could see fireworks from Orem all the way to Thanksgiving point from where we watched. It was amazing!

We had a really wonderful day spending time with both sets of grandparents and enjoying good food and fun. Happy Birthday America!
