july fourth

I love 4th of July! I'm such a sucker for fireworks and love the opportunity to remember and reflect of the freedoms that we enjoy in this country. Monday we had a pre-fourth party at Stone Gate. Mike and his friend Drew had too much fun lighting up the sky with fireworks. He's always been a pyro! Gwen was so cute and beyond entranced by the big fireworks. She kept pointing and saying "looook!"

The night before 4th of July is a complete party in Provo. Everyone lines University, staking out spots for the parade in the morning. The streets are crowded and everyone is walking around having a great time. 7-11 is the place to be for college students (and apparently married people too ha) Mike and I, hoped on our scooter with Tanner and Bradon and joined the party. 

The actual holiday was spent BBQing, hanging out at the pool, basketball, and of course friends, family, and fireworks. We didn't go to Stadium of Fire this year (our mistake!) so we watched the fireworks from the Y. It's incredible how big those things are. We could see all the other big fireworks going off, but they're nothing in comparison. Stadium of Fire sure does spoil us with a one-of-a-kind show!
My family had a mini reunion and I was so sad to not be there. But seeing as how we've been gone so much lately, it was nice to have some time at home before we're off on another adventure next week. I can't wait to see my family next week! Lake Powell here we come!
