I love it. This is daddy's "one match" fire that became huge.
I love the mountains in the summer. If we can just add a beach and a larger city with way more entertainment and warm weather all year round, I would live in utah for the rest of my life! But lets get real here.
anyway.
We've had so much fun going up into the mountains and going on little hikes and bonfires. Tonight were going again.

HAPPY JULY 4TH EVERYONE

INDEPENDENCE DAY!

ok that flower Taylor is wearing was the ONLY red flower that I could find to clip on. Its almost as big as her head!




Bailey took this picture. We Stayed up so late last night doing fire works with the kids and got up so early for the parade this morning. You can tell we look pretty tired. The parade was actually enjoyable. Airplanes, F-16's, fire trucks, floats, bands, good music and good company. We randomly sat next to some of our friends from The complex we live in! Suprise. It was fun to see them there. Last year I swore that I would NEVER attend another Utah Valley Parade but we did it again and I'm glad. Were going to see the fireworks tonight at the stadium of fire where Miley Cirus and the Blue man group, oh yeah and Glenn Beck will be there! Were going to do our traditional KFC picnic outside the stadium and fireworks, glow swords, games and goofing off until the firework show. We thought this would be a good tradition until the children are old enough to actually attend without it being a nightmare for us. It is a spectacular show, usually. But until the kids are older...will hang outside the stadium. Actually hundreds of people hang out right outside of the stadium. Its so fun. The firework show is great to because you lay down and the fireworks are right above you. You can feel the vibration of the explosions in your chest. Its awesome! We'll see how Taylor reacts. I think she'll be fine becuase at the parade there were so many gun, and cannons shooting off 20 feet from us and she didnt cry once!



Here are some pictures through the eyes of Bailey. There were some pretty funny ones that got deleted too quickly.
