Celebrating the 4th

This year for the 4th, we had to stick close to home because I had to work all weekend. I swear next year we will get up to Idaho for the fireworks. It's been 3 years since we've been up there for them. Anyways, we had some good friends invite us up to their house for a barbecue and to watch the Thanksgiving Point fireworks. The live up on the hill in Lehi, so they had a great view from their back yard. We also got to see one of our good friends from high school (Justin) and his family. Since they live in Connecticut, we don't get to see them often. All in all, there were 4 families there. We had some fabulous food...a little too much, had a great time visiting, and did a few little fireworks. Luckily, there were neighbors on either side with some bigger fireworks, so we watched theirs. Chan and Rowan had fun playing with all of the other kids there. At one point, we were trying to get a shot with all of the kids, and that failed miserably. Instead of the 5 that were there, we got 2 of them, Jack and Chandler.

I guess it's better than nothing, right? The fireworks at Thanksgiving Point were fun and the boys loved them, and they lasted all of 10 minutes. ;)

The biggest hit of the night? Sparklers.
