Happy Birthday America!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!! I love this holiday, it's one of my favorites. I love that I am American and living in this country and the freedom that we have here.

Last night, my parents came over to our house to have a little BBQ before we went to the Logan fireworks. We've found this spot on the side of the road in North Logan where put up our camping chairs to watch the fireworks. Josh got bit by some mosquitoes...did not make him happy!! The fireworks were good.

This is the best one I got of Josh and I. The flash was so bright and we were trying to keep our eyes open.

My Mom and Dad

Then we went to my brother and sis-in-laws to light more fireworks. Josh and I got stuck in the stadium traffic and it took us like 30 minutes to got like 12 blocks!! We were so irritated!
The fireworks that Jade bought came with these awesome glasses.

Fireworks just aren't what they used to be when I was a kid. I always loved the sparklers and the ones that came in the box Jade bought were so sucky!! They didn't stay lit for more than 2 seconds!! And all the others didn't last very long either and just made smoke. It was still fun to be with my family though!!

sounds like fun! You are always so good at blogging things right away. I don't have my camera while I am down here so I have been taking pictures with my phone and trying to email them to my hotmail. Then I will try and post them. It is very frustraiting. Love those glasses! We had fun too! Poor Jay was by himself and did nothing :( He didn't even do fireworks with scott and mandy because they went to the lake. So he was oh-so-lonely! Happy 4th!
