4th of July!

We had a very nice relaxing 4th of July. It all started out when I had to be up at 5:30 to go set up for our Stake Freedom Breakfast. Not so relaxing, but after I was done with that my wonderful sisters came and got Logan so that I could take a nap and David could go help clean the church. A little bit later we went to my parents house to get Logan. David has a garden at my parents house and loves working on it with my dad. My dad was making a drip system for their stuff to grow better so David decided to not go to the fair with us so he could help my dad. So my sister Hilary, Logan and I went to the Sandy fair. And I must say it was pretty lame. I think they had already put all the activities for kids away except the inflatables which Logan won't go on. So we looked at all the booths and I feel like there were half as many booths this year. Oh well we still got some pretty good deals and some good ideas for crafts. After that we went and got African Ice snow cones. They are the best snow cone around! About an hour later we went home and did snapper/pops fireworks with Logan and he thought it was hilarious. He liked to step on them best. Now came time to go swimming. It was so nice. We hadn't been swimming in a month so it was so nice to get in the pool. The barbeque we had was wonderful as usual and then came the fireworks. We usually do what is called the ring of fire. The kids hold hands and dance around the fountains chanting "Ring of Fire, Ring of Fire". Well this year was a little different. This year they did the Slide of Fire. They put the fireworks in the pool and someone would go down the slide over the firework. It was quite entertaining. Logan loved the fireworks. He thought they were so funny. After each firework he would raise up one arm and yell "WOOO". I thought for sure he would hate them. That ended our day and it was so nice. I love the 4th of July. I love the patriotism, the colors, and the BBQ's. I am so grateful to live in a country where I am free!

At the fair they had a firetruck and this thing to pose in. Logan did not enjoy it.

Logan with his monkey leash. Before I had Logan I was so anti leash. I thought it looked ridiculous. I think anyone who thinks this way has never had a child that doesn't want to be in a stroller and is very rambunctious. I don't think I would ever do a regular leash but this monkey one is so cute cause its also a little backpack. Logan loved that he could get down and play.

Logan and Daddy playing with snaps.

Looks like you guys had a great 4th. The 15th probably works better for me cause I have appointments at the salon all morning on the 13th. Just let me know what will work so I don't schedule appointments during lunch.

Wow what a fun 4th of July! I love the pics you took I like the one with him and David throwing snaps! Ok so about the playdate that wed I have to work cuz one of the assistants I work with had someone pass away and she is having a hard time so they asked if I could help out for a while. Let me know if you guys come up with another date though.
