The 4th of July

Our family tradition for the 4th of July is to camp out on the Missionary fields near the Provo Temple to see the Stadium of Fire show from a distance. It is so much fun every year. We love it. We prepared this year by bringing our old tent, which will now be retired as we lent it to someone and it came back ripped beyond repair and filthy. It did offer some good shade, and was a good farewell voyage for it. We also brought snacky foods and stopped by the dollar store for water toys and glow sticks.

It was a very laid back day, which is exactly what we were hoping for. It got a little hot at times and we could have prepared a little better for that, but all in all it was a really great day. I love this tradition.

 Some cute girls were selling suckers to save money for their dance class.

 The stinker foiled my romantic picture...
 Watermelon and suckers. This boy was in Heaven.

 It got too hot for me, so we mutilated my jeans to make some capris.

 He is already sagging his pants. We might be in trouble in a few years...

 Sara was very creative with these glow sticks. I think Ross's phone has some other pictures, so I'll have to dig those up at some point.

Happy Birthday, America. We saw all kinds of explosions in your honor.

I'm a little tiffed about your tent! Hopefully whoever you lent it to has paid you back!
Your kids are all so adorable.
