4th of July

The 4th of July was fun and pretty much the traditional 4th.  Sorry no pictures : (.  We started the day with the parade.  We went with Doug's Dad, Dallin & Leslie, and their kids.  We decided to bring Burley and see how he did.  He was actually great!  Besides trying to steal the kids candy and wanting to say hi to the millions of people there, he was content to sit and watch the parade.

After the parade we went of to Dallin & Leslie's house for a quick lunch bbq (which was fabulous)  and then all went to see Toy Story 3.  We loved the movie and it was nice to be able to relax for a couple hours.  We had planned to go rock climbing but our poor nephew fell and broke his arm a few days before the 4th.  So a movie was a great alternative.

We took a quick nap and then headed out for the Maleluca Freedom Celebration.  Doug, his Dad, and brothers usually play in the orchestra, which gets us a free meal and great seats for the firework show.  After eating we laid our quilts down to enjoy (with a few laughs here and there)  the patriotic program : ).  And of course after the program we watched the most spectacular firework show I've ever seen.  It was amazing and beautiful!  

On the following Monday we went again over to Dallin and Leslie's to enjoy some home fireworks!  It was fun to watch the grown men act like little boys and my niece and nephew doing sparklers and snaps.  All in all we had a wonderful holiday filled with family and fun!
