HaPpY FoUrTh of JuLy.....we packed it full of fun!
Jeanette's Belly Dancing Troupe Performed at the Freedom Festival
Happy Independence Day! Ours started out....well, it started out very early with a trip down to Provo to see the Balloon Fest! We had a grand time watching all the many colored balloons fill the air....this was all Amanda's idea, cause we usually steer clear of Provo on the 4th of July, but what the heck? We picked up doughnuts at our favorite spot in PG, Daylight Doughnuts and headed home for a nutritious breakfast before attempting a little day hike in Alpine.
The was my idea and it proved to be just a little bit more of a workout then intended. We did get treated to a beautiful waterfall at the end so definitely worth it.
Next came a fun filled day with all of the cousins coming to my house and breaking out the slip and slide and lounging in the hot tub and whatever else seemed fun at the time. I was busy making blackberry pie and other yummy things for a great barbecue later in the day.
The food was great and the company even better.....but wait we are not done yet! Down we go to the PG JR High to enjoy the extra sparkley treat of the PG City Fireworks! They did not dissapoint this year....we had so much fun before and after the show with our own glow in the dark sticks and sharing popcorn and snacks. Good job on reserving the spot goes out to Bradley! Nice job Honey!
Even more fun to come as we came home and enjoyed our delicious desserts and then out to the curb to set off our own pyro show. It was fantastic. What a day....we could hardly drag ourselves to bed.....can't wait for next year!
