4th of July

We had quite the busy Fourth of July weekend!  For the first time in quite a long time our dad was home for the holiday!  On the 3rd Sam was to perform at the stadium fireworks at the Romney Stadium.  We usually go to the fireworks at the stadium but we don't usually go up until about 8-8:30.  Sam had to be there at 5:30 and they were dancing right at 8 so we decided to head up when the gates opened at 7.  We took the other kids to Grandpa Scott & Grandma Kris's house and had dinner first and then headed to the stadium at 7.  We managed to get a good parking spot in the stadium without having to pay but I'm not sure it was worth the 45 minute wait to get out of the parking lot afterwards!  It was a good thing we left when we did because she really did dance right at 8!

 She did a great job and it was fun to watch her.  It was a long time for the other kids to be at the stadium though, that's for sure!  I think I prefer going up at 8 pm instead!

On the Fourth we went down and watched the Hyrum parade (despite knowing better).  I will say this year was better than last year because the parade was only about an hr to an hr and a half long rather than two and a half hours long.  The kids got more candy than usual too, so that was nice for them.

After the parade Trav's brother and his family came over to our place for a bit.  The boys decided they were going to call Grandpa Scott and Grandma Kris and ask if we could take the jet ski's out to Benson to play.  So, a few hours later we ended up out at Benson and stayed there until dark.  The kids had a great time.  Nash got up on his feet on the little jet ski for the first time too.

We even managed to not get too sunburned!
