4th of July
Ward pancake breakfast. Right on center st. Which is where people camp out and sleep to try and get a good seat for the parade.
Prime seats for the parade. Thanks to the ward. They laid out blankets for the kids.
Daddy's girl, Matt liked how the flag said made in China.
This group won best sound. it was also the cutest band out of millions
Jarom getting a high five. he kept waving and then doing a thumbs up. And then he asked me, "how do you get any candy here?" Very few people throw out candy.
Some princesses, charming, this is about as bad as it got. There are a ton of amazing floats, but of course we don't take pictures of those or of the big balloons.
The blue chick was my favorite, these are people who are the pre-parade.
Homemade cotton candy for a buck on our block
Our own fireworks show.
snakes are awesome
oey running away with our two lighters that look like guns. He would cry if he didn't have both.
ladies and gentlemen welcome to the stadium of fire!
The boys liked dancers, they danced with basketballs and horses even ran out and around.
I guess that's what jarom thought of Hannah Montana. The kids really liked the blue man group.
This show was forever long. And at some points was really hard to watch because of all the ash and debris.
Just one of the many pieces that hit me. This one was the biggest- I think
We walked. Of course. We walk everywhere ,this was about two miles away. And we kind of didn't want to walk because it gets out so late but we were sure glad we did. people were stuck in parking lots for about a hour. This is a cool guy that was breakdancing in the middle of the street. We would have totally missed out on this had we not walked.
