just a few weeks late.
We had a wonderful 4th. Starting on the 3rd with the kids' 1st Rodeo (btw -- Kadan decided that bull riding just did NOT look very fun -- thank goodness for that). Then in the morning we went to the Show Low Parade and had the perfect location. We got tons of candy and soaked by the fire hoses -- just perfect for a warm summer day. After going to see Ice Age the meltdown we venture to the city fire works. Piled in the back of Ian's truck -- we had the most perfect view with an easy, no wait, way out of the parking lot.
Don't you just love the "oohs and ahhs" from your kids with each explosion of the fireworks? And "oh, that one is my favorite" or "whoa, that one was huge,"it's the finale"!!! I cannot count how many times I heard those phrases that night but I could hear them 1 million times more.
It was just a wonderful time.
