Well, with the 4th on a Sunday this year, Independence Day seemed to go on FOREVER! Which I was okay with. The weekend was lots of fun. We started the holiday off with a "bang" and played around with fire. Lucy insisted on bringing her fire hat to the Haslam's for dinner that evening, because where there is fire you must have fire safety. We all felt safe with with Lucy around. The Haslam's have been my friends since high school, and we happen to have children that all correspond closely in age. So it's been fun living near them again. The girls have become close friends with their girls, in fact every time we see them they all seem to sporaticly burst into affectionate hugs. They were just being stinkers when I tried to get them in a picture. We had a fun BBQ, followed by some good fireworks in the street, then we left the husbands to put babies to bed and us 6 girls went to watch the stadium of fire fireworks in Provo. It was good enough motivation for my kids to all nap REALLY well that afternoon, otherwise this wouldn't have been possible. We didn't get home until after 11:00, easily the latest my kids have ever been up! It was a lot of fun!

Sparklers were a fun first experience
Stadium of Fire, viewed from Fox Field in Provo. Dallan did experiment once the booms could be heard and said he could see the highest fireworks from the porch of our house, and many of our ward members just watched from our church parking lot.
