4th of July Fun

This 4th of July was really pretty fun. I had the day off, woohoo! And we got to hang out with the family and some friends all day. Danny had Nate and Tyler during the morning, they had wanted to ride on the fire truck with him in Parowan, so me and Ryder went to the parade here with the family. It was really fun. Betsys mom Margaret had made cute little candy bags for all the kids and had the very genius idea of bringing candy for the kids, since people here are stingy with candy at parades. It was fun.

After the parade I went and grabbed some stuff to make a salad for lunch and was able to pick up the boys. As always I was late to Betsys but we ate some yummy sandwichs and watermelon and that, and had some very, very yummy homemade berry ice cream and a 4th of July cake. It was the perfect lunch for the day.

The boys were in rare form as always, being show offs and goofing around all day long, which of course, is why we love them. After lunch we decided to go swimming, and all headed over to the Parowan pool. Again, as normal, I was running late cause I had to go grab some money to get in, but when we got there we all got in the pool and had a great time. The water was perfect and warm, and the boys practiced their swimming like they had learned in swim lessons this week. It took Ry awhile to warm up but after a bit he was in there splashing around too.

It was really fun seeing all the stuff they had learned, and how much more confidence they had while in the pool than even a month ago while we were swimming in the hotel over Memorial Day weekend. I was super proud of them. Still has a long way to go for both, but they are gettin there and it makes me happy they have the opportunity to do all that they are doing right now.

After swimming we went to see my friend Meghan for awhile then were going to go out and watch fireworks at Betsy's, but the boys fell asleep on the way out there. Then, fabulously enough, they woke up when we got back into town, so we ended up meeting up with Tony, Valena and Melissa for fireworks at the airport. The show was good and we came home and went to bed. It was a long and tiring day, but very, very fun! Thank you to Betsy for planning such a fun filled day for us to enjoy!
