4th of July!

We had a really fun 4th of July this year!  The girls and I drove up to Hyrum (near Logan) and went to Jason's sister's house.  She lives right on main street, and so we can sit on her lawn for the Hyrum 4th of July parade!  The girls loved seeing the "princesses" on their floats, and the cowgirls and cowboys on their horses.  They also loved the candy that was thrown from the floats!  Afterward, we had a BBQ with Jason's family.  Typically, I forgot to bring our camera, and so there are no pictures!!!  Darn it!  When Jason got home from work that evening, we took the kids out on the driveway and did little fireworks and sparklers with them.  We were also able to watch the neighbor's big fireworks, now that they are legal!  It was lots of fun, and the girls thought it was great.  It was especially cute to see Natalie - she LOVED the bright flashing fireworks that Jason set off in the driveway!  I DID get pictures from that:

Lizzy's making a silly face! 

Rachel's excited for the fireworks to begin!

Lizzy's writing shapes in the air with her sparkler!

A video of the kids watching one of the fireworks! I only got the littlest package, so they wouldn't be too scary.  I remember not liking the 4th of July for many years when I was young, because it was too scary!
