Water, Sand, and Fire

We spent the 4th of July weekend celebrating with family and friends. Saturday we attended a barbeque at our Bishop's house with their family and some other friends from the ward. The kids played in the sprinklers, and on the slip and slide, while the adults visited. That evening our hosts put on an amazing aerial fireworks show. We also had the opportunity to present our good friend in the ward who had recently returned from serving in Iraq, with a poster on which we had all written letters to him thanking him for his service.

On Monday, we had dinner at Grandma Nancy's house with the Terrillions and Great Grandma Emily. Then we took the boys to the lake at Daybreak to play in the sand and wade in the water. We ended the evening with fireworks at the Terrillion's home. Inspired by the Bishop's spectacular display, Greg made an impromptu stop at Winco for a big areial firework for the night's finale. Since aeial fireworks are now legal in Utah, Greg is all about buying and setting them off. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of them on Pioneer Day this month. I must admit, they are pretty cool.

A happy Forth of July, indeed! What a wonderful country we are privelidged to live in, and how thankful we are for those who bravely fight for those freedoms we enjoy!
