4th of July

better 1 month late than never...

6:30 am Provo Freedom Festival Hot Air Balloon Launch.

Balloons were not actually launched due to high winds. Thankfully my children are too young to know the difference.

9:00am Parade.

These people take their patriotism seriously.
Fun had by all thanks to overcast skies and giant sno-cones.

11am- 9pm ate flag cake + watermelon, napped, did yard work.

9pm watched fireworks from the trunk of our car.

Best seat in the house. Plenty of skittles and twix to go around.

Bonus that we had quite a fireworks show driving to the fireworks show courtesy of the good folks of Alpine who zealously participated thanks to the newly lifted ban on aerial fireworks in these parts.
