17) Ate yummy ice cream
18) Sat under the overhang trying not to get wet from the rain
19) got super dirty (my kids)


The fireworks were great this year!  We went to a block party with my sister a few days before the forth and watched a pretty elaborate fireworks show.  Sam cried.  He quickly got over it and started oooing and awwing.  It was a good introduction into the booming lights.  During all of the fireworks he pointed intently while cooing and some times doing his little dance.  He loved it.  It was fun to watch him enjoy the fireworks.  He also made a continual nummy noise while eating Rae's pink salad.  It was tasty! This fourth was special because my sister Jess came into town.  It was fun to see her kiddos.

Mia loved doing the sparklers.  She was pretty upset that she only got to do one.  We'll have to buy a bunch for the 24th.  Jense of course was really into lighting the fireworks and Ellie missed a lot of the fireworks because she was busy getting the homemade ice cream to everyone.  That's my girl. It was a great day.

20) We celebrate our freedom!!
Happy 4th of JULY

Those are FANTASTIC firework pictures... mine looked like colorful blobs.

Glad you had a great 4th! I miss Utah on the 4th.. it was always so fun. Arizona is just too hot and ick to sit outside and watch the show.. and it's illegal to set off your own.
