The Fourth...

was Spectacular...

It all started with the Provo freedom festival 5K run. I picked up my niece Ally early from efy and we all did the run. It was so fun to have Boston do it with us, he ran the whole time. I guess those soccer skills really kicked in. {he even ran into the finish line way before me}

They had a live band and Hot air balloons going up everywhere, it was seriously so Patriotic and breathtaking. They sang the National Anthem as we paid tribute to our flag and off we went. It was a perfect way to start out our Celebration to America...




Then we had our neighborhood BBQ.
We BLocked off the street and had lots of food/drinks, kids were playing on the Blow up slides and bouncers.
We had a BLAST!

Wiffleball, Cake Walks, Hopscotch, and bike riding, Jump roping and Bike jumps...






Later that Afternoon we headed over to The Hansen farm where we had our Annual Hansen 4th of July party.

We bbq'd & played Volleyball, steal the bacon {kids favorite}, Cake walk, balloon making, sidewalk chalk, swords and enjoyed each others company.







We came home & played some more on the blow up bouncers. We saw the fighter Jets fly over the Stadium of Fire and so we started our Fireworks...

We enjoyed watching the Stadium of Fire fireworks & listening to the Jonas Brothers while outside our house.
