Let Freedom Ring

Wow, what a CrAzY weekend we had! We had such a blast, but we are sure happy to be home and back into our routine.

Our weekend started bright and early at 5:30am on Friday morning. Every year we stay down in Provo at a friends house and go to the BaLlOoN MeEt. They start at 6:00am and we love it so much that we sacrifice sleep for it. We have some friends that fly hot air balloons in the competition, so we are able to help them fill up the balloons and take them down. Sometimes we are even able to go up in them! We took Tatum last year, but he was only 4 months old and didn't really understand what was going on. So this year he had a blast!! He loved the balloons. When they would ShOoT fIrE into the balloon he would cry for a second and then start to clap his hands. We sat him in the balloon and he was not happy about it...maybe one year when he is older, we can take him up in one!

It was such a beautiful morning...

And it was so neat to see all of these balloons in the air at once!

After the balloon meet we went to the PrOvO PaRaDe. I can't believe how many people go to this parade! Tatum was so tired that half way trough he fall asleep. The rest of the day we went from party to party.

That night we went to Eric's Aunt's house and watched a movie outside and then did some fireworks.

I'd like to say that this was the end of our celebration, but we got up at 5:30am the next morning and did it all over again!! Over the span of 3 days we got a total of 15 HoUrS oF sLeEp!! I'm afraid it is going to take us a few days to recuperate after this LoNg weekend:)
