4th of July Weekend: Part 1

Every fourth of July, Aaron's family comes into town from all over the west coast. It is a ton of fun and jam packed with activities. One tradition is to go up Provo Canyon to a park called South Fork for a picnic. The parents love it because we can just sit back and chat in a shady park. The kids love it because there is a creek that runs trough the park and for some reason, they enjoy freezing their bums off playing in it. Chloe loved playing in the water and thought it was hilarious when she would sit down in the water. This year, Heather brought boats for all the kids to float down the river. It was a big hit!

After the park, we headed off to Provo to watch the fireworks. It was a great way to end the evening. However, by the time the fireworks actually started Chloe was basically asleep and we had to wake her up to see them. I forgot how fun it was to watch a big fireworks show with kids. Every time one would go off, they would get so excited and have to point it out to their parents.
