Happy Fourf!

Fourth of July was quiet, but fun at our house. It's my sister's birthday, but she lives in California. I grew up celebrating the fourth like nobody's business. We'd go to Sylvan Park in Redlands and barbecue and parades and parties and cake and games and it was a blast. So as I've gotten older, lived in Utah, and siblings have moved away, the Fourth has grown kinda boring. But it's still my favorite holiday. Last year was a downer, we hardly celebrated, I went running, watched the fireworks from a distance, and then jogged home.


 This year was better. Jessica was here, so we went to the parade and to the park where the cherry days celebration was going on. Then checked out the car show.

 After that we went to Thayne's house and watched our customary traditional Independence Day (yeah, the one with Will Smith) and I even made a cake for Sharla's birthday, even if she was in California. It didn't turn out very well.





Jess and I went to the fireworks alone, hung out and even witnessed a flash mob!

Then the fireworks started and they were absolutely beautiful! I love fourth of July so much!
