Red, White and Blue...

Let's give a big burnt thumbs up for the 4th of July! A summer can't go by without someone getting burnt... ryan's turn this year.
Ryan's mom coaxed us out of beg at 4:30 this morning to head down to the balloon festival in Provo.
It was fun to watch the huge balloons get blown up and head up into the sky.
Brenner and Joren loved to watch the balloons and it was worth getting up so early in the morning.
Then we headed down to the parade where we occasionally saw a cool float or balloon (I'm not a huge fan of parades.... I don't like the bands or people in cars.  I don't like sitting in the hot sun and/or getting rained on.)
After heading to a park for lunch, we were all tuckered out and headed home for a nap and a nice relaxing evening at home
We had fun doing our own fireworks in our back yard with our neighbors.
Then we headed out to the edge of the hill to watch all of the cities fireworks in the back of the truck.  We could see the fireworks all over the valley.
Happy Independence Day!!!

I've always wanted to go to a balloon festival - they have one in New Mexico that I will someday attend. Know that your family was missed at our Fourth of July Bbq!!!!

It's amazing we didn't run into each other because we did everything you did...
I mean, surely out of the teeming thousands of people there...
Sorry Ryan got burnt.
Adorable pictures!

At least Ryan has a smile on his face with a burned thumb!
