4th of July Weekend

4th of July weekend was awesome! I got to spend time with both my family and with Paul's. My sister July's birthday was on Saturday so my whole family (minus my brother Ryan) met at July's house to celebrate. We had a bbq lunch and then the girls went to get pedicure's while the boys held down the fort. Ahhhhh, I love pedicure's and I got the cutest flag on my toe in honor of Independence Day. I guess you could say I'm pretty patriotic. :) After the pedicure's we went back to July's for some dinner before heading to Eaglewood Golf Course in Bountiful for the fireworks. It was a beautiful night so we got to enjoy being outside, playing frisbee and eating treats. The fireworks were great and I loved being with my family.

The next day, Paul's sister Kari blessed her newest son (who incidentally is named Paul). There was a nice brunch held after and it was a great time to spend catching up with Paul's family. That afternoon the boys enjoyed a little game of wiffle ball in the 102 degree weather. The girls were smarter than that and enjoyed some "visiting" inside where the air conditioning was. It was an awesome day!

The next day we were invited to Kari and Clark's to have red, white and blue pancakes. Yumm! We watched a movie with the girls and then went home to take a nap. That night we went to July and Cory's for a bbq and some fireworks. Now that the aerial fireworks are legal, we had a great show! I was a little frightened at times but it was so fun!

I am so thankful to be an American and to be able to enjoy all the freedom's that offers!!!
