4th of July 2010


What a fun weekend! As bummed as I was that I didn't get to go to the Perry celebrations with the fam, I still had a great 4th of July weekend. Even work was fun!

On the 4th we did fireworks in the driveway of Michael's parent's place. Kalel LOVED them! I don't think I have ever seen him so excited! Here's a picture of what he did every time a firework went off...

What a hoot! I love it! Here's a video of his excitement...

That is him in the background at the very beginning saying, "Watch, it's gonna get bigger!" and then at the end saying, "Do it again, do it again!" He cracked me up! He would jump while they were going and jump as he screamed Do it again! He loved them! (For those of you that don't know, that is Michael's nephew)

Here are some other pictures from that night...

The next night was the night of the Brigham City fireworks. We had planned since about last year at this time (we had an offer on the house and were crossing our fingers to get it) to climb up on the roof to watch the fireworks. We did it and it was beautiful. The roof is extremely steep so it was scary but I'd say worth it. And I'd say I'll probably do it again next year. The hardest part was probably climbing down the ladder, that whole turning around to get in the right position thing is difficult. But Michael, his friend Zach and I had a good time on the roof with the view.

This was the view from our roof before the fireworks started obviously because you can see the field lights on.

This is the view from our house with no zoom.

I took more pictures but I won't bore you all with them, I'm sure just about everyone saw them that night anyways.

Now, just for fun, let me go into a challenge I have. Taking pictures with Michael. He cannot keep his eyes open for the life of him. Especially if there is a flash. If there is no flash, it is still nearly impossible for him. So the next 3 pictures are me trying and failing to get a picture of the two of us..

Hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July weekend!
