Independence Day is one of my favorite Holidays! I think it is because it is in the summer, so its always warm when we celebrate.
We shopped for new couches. Fun, but overwhelming.
In the afternoon we headed to Thanksgiving Point where Ryan’s family was. We had ice cream at the soda shoppe.
After ice cream we went to the park behind Thanksgiving point where there was a little “carnival”, it was actually quite lame. But the kids did enjoy a ride on a cow train and dancing and running around.
We then headed to the Marriott hotel next to Thanksgiving point, where Ryan’s mom was so sweet and got us all hotel rooms so that we could swim and watch fireworks.
Unfortunately, someone threw up in the pool so the kids could only swim for a few minutes.
The fireworks were fantastic, and the weather was perfect. And a miracle happened..Evie fell asleep on my shoulder. NEVER HAPPENS. I wanted to enjoy it, so Ryan, the kids, and I hung out on the patio and just talked for awhile after the fireworks. It was so nice.
We had a wonderful Independence day enjoying time with family!
