Happy 24th!

Standard

We haven’t made it to the last few July 24th parties and it was so nice to be able to go this year! Lisa and Jeff hosted everyone, Grandma and Grandpa Bills brought the marinated turkey (the kind you have to fend everyone off to get your hands on some!) and afterwards we had fireworks in the church parking lot!

Ethan was nice and shared his airplane with Dylan. I think playing with this plane was the highlight of Dylan’s night!

It was fun to watch the cousins playing together! I think the sparklers might have been the highlight of Ellie’s night!

Sparklers are timeless fun!

Alison wasn’t so sure that she wanted a sparkler though…..

When it started getting darker the fireworks began! Grandma and Grandpa brought popsicles and drinks.  We had such a good time! Megan snuggled with my mom because it was so noisy. Getting dark meant that all of my pictures stopped turning out….

There had been some fires in Utah, which made for a pretty spectacular sunset.

Here is the only “night” picture that turned out. Cozi covering her ears watching fireworks. That’s the way to do it!

We had a great evening and enjoyed being with family. I look forward to these times, these connections that bring us together… that keep us together.
