Happy Birthday America 2012!

We had a great time celebrating the 4th of July this year!!!


We went to the West Jordan parade in the morning. Kind of a disappointment since their weren't any floats, but we may have missed them. We left a little early since it was so darn hot.

After the parade, we cooled off at Lani's Hawaiian Shaved Ice. If you haven't been there, you need to try it. They actually sneak ice cream into your shaved ice, so you get a yummy little surprise at the bottom. It's one of our favorite places in the summer time.

 Lily loved clapping for everything in the parade!

We stopped by John's parents house to say hello and it just so happened that the cousins were there too! So we all had lunch together and the kids got to play!

 Playing hard in the pool! Did I mention it was stinkin' hot today!?

After that, we went home and the kids crashed for a couple hours before we went to Grandpa's house to eat dinner and be pyros for a few hours!

We didn't even have to ask Jack to watch out. He was so cautious when we lit the fireworks :)

 Lily enjoyed the show from the grass.

Oh, and John did remember to put protections around the castle before we started...
 (If you know what I'm talking about, you must be a nerd too. :)

John and I actually celebrated a little something else this 4th...
 John came back from basketball this morning with me this huge chocolate kiss from the Chocolate Cottage. This fourth of July marked EIGHT years since we started dating.
