4th of July

We had a very fun 4th of July weekend. We started out by taking the kids to Liberty Park in Salt Lake to play in the fountains. When we lived in Salt Lake, we used to go there with Emma all the time, but I don't think we have been there in over a year, so it was great fun to be able to go back there with Alan and Logan. First we had fun in the canyon fountains and then we headed over to the playground to have a little fun in the water fountain there. We topped it off with a little music in the park. I had forgotten how much there is to do there. I kinda wish we planned more time there, but we had to get up to Fruit Heights to have dinner with Scott's family. But first, on the way up there, we just had to stop by and check on the house. I was so nervous about seeing the color we had chosen for the outside of the house, but when we drove up, Scott and I were both relieved to find that we both LOVE it. I can't wait to see the outside all done. Also, they had mudded the inside. Yay! That night, after dinner and putting the kids to bed, we played Monopoly, and to no one's surprise, Scott won.

Saturday morning after pancakes, we went down to our now regular spot for the Kaysville parade. We were lucky enough to be joined by Scott's Mom and Dad, his brother Jake, and his friends Cory and Andrea Nelson with their cutie cute little girls. There was perfect parade weather and the kids had a blast. They got a ton of candy, necklaces, and Emma got a princess book, Alan got a ball and frisbee, and Logan got Bolt on DVD. Whoever heard of them giving out DVDs from parade floats? By the time the parade was over Logan was completely worn out. We sent the rest of the day with family at Mom and Dad's playing in sprinklers in the back yard, watching Kevin play Zelda on the Wii, and eating pizza and homemade peach ice cream. We ended the day with a few fireworks. All in all, it was a pretty great day.I guess some things never change. The first picture is Alan waiting for the parade to start this year and the second picture is Alan waiting for the parade to start last year.

Logan with Natalie (Cory and Andrea's little girl). She is about 8 months older than Logan. Aren't they cute together? They have the same hair do. :)

Scott's little brother Kevin is in the Davis High Drumline.

Emma and Logan loved all the floats with dance teams and cheerleaders. They would dance and cheer as they passed. Scott is such a good dad to dance on the side of the road with the kids.

It was a fun celebration; love all the photos, especially Alan's "waiting for the parade" faces! Thanks for sharing the day with us.
Love always,
