4th of July Fun

Yes I am just now getting around to my 4th of July about behind!

{The Balloon Festival}

We started our day bright and early at 6:00am to see the Provo balloon festival. 
We were all a little tired as we sat around waiting for it to start.

This year they had a Darth Vader balloon. 
The kids were so excited about it that we had to plow through the crowds to see it. 

And of course you say the word "Star Wars" and these guys show up...

It was a bit of a windy day, so right after we saw Darth Vader go up a huge gust of wind came and knocked all the balloons down.

It was actually pretty funny. People were panicking and screaming, thinking the balloons were going to fall on them. After that they had put all of the balloons away. They only let one balloon up and it was tethered so it couldn't go anywhere. It was a bit of a disappointment, but we still had a good time.

Can you guess what these two boys are excited about?

Yup more Star Wars!

{Slip N Slide and Fireworks}

After naps we made a huge slip n slide for the kids and did some fireworks.
This year we got some nice aerial fireworks and put on a pretty good show!

We had such a fun but busy 4th of July! 
I am so grateful for family and friends to celebrate this wonderful holiday with!
