God Bless America!

We LOVE the 4th of July in our house! It's such a fun time of the year with fun things to do and I love the feeling of love and pride for our wonderful country. We had a fun day and made sure to keep up with traditions!

We started off our day up the canyon to take Evan fishing! He actually stay interested in it a lot longer than we thought he would, but we still didn't get any bites.

We came home so Audrey could get her naps in and to cool off with some Otter Pops. And we did a few sparklers. Evan thought they were pretty awesome!

Then just like we do every year, we had a yummy BBQ with Reed's nearby siblings and their families followed by the BYU men's soccer game and fireworks! We had a lot of fun!

Happy Birthday America!

Cute! Im impressed your kids did so well with fireworks. Bailey covers her ears for most of it and Connor whimpered until he fell asleep. Gotta love it!
