We had a very busy 4th of July and then I went to bed at 8:30pm with a pillow over my head (to block out the neighborhood fireworks).
The day started at 6am when I got up and got dressed and got the girls dressed. We then drove down to Provo, parked at my Aunt's house and walked over to the field where they do the hot air balloons.
"Ant! Bye bye ant."
Did you get it?
After the parade we went home, and then my second eldest brother came over with his family and our kids had a grand time playing together. Then Mr. Man's parents came over, and my brother's family went off to their next stop (they're visiting from Indiana, btw), and then my parents came over as did Isaac and Amy. Mischief enjoyed "feeding" Uncle Isaac her toys. They all slowly trickled back out and we got ready for the night's barbecues. Both my family and my husband's family had them planned for the same time, but only a few blocks away from each other so we bounced between the two. When it started to rain a touch we all headed home and went to bed. Yep, we did no firework lighting or watching. I was exhausted, though I'm pretty sure the girls played in their room for a long while instead of going to sleep despite how tired they were. Mischief is still asleep though it's after 8am now.
It's was a great Independence Day!
