The Fourth of July is always such a fun holiday, and this year was no exception. Since the big day was on Saturday, Chad had Friday off, giving us an extra day to play!
We spent Friday at Causey Reservoir, floating around in our tubes.
This little lake doesn't allow motorized boats,
so it was perfect for playing on the shore and enjoying the hot sun.
That night we lit up a few fireworks. Tess didn't love them,
but we couldn't keep Kade away. He is a little pyro!
On the Fourth we headed out to breakfast and then hit up the Layton parade. It was SO HOT. And long. And crowded. So we didn't last very long. I have decided that we do not need to go these stupid parades anymore, unless I know that they're not going to suck. The kids don't even care...
My parents came up for the afternoon and we had a tasty BBQ lunch.
We spent the rest of the day just hanging out and relaxing.
We decided not to brave the crowds to watch Layon's fireworks, so we drove up the mountain to find a good spot to watch. We found a good one where we could see everyone in the valley shooting off their own firework shows,
as well as many of the cities. Pretty cool!
