4th of July Celebration

We had such a fun day on the 4th of July! It was great being able to celebrate our nations Independence Day with some good friends that we really don't get to see that often.  We wanted to go up to Rexburg to see the parade there to see out good friend Alan and because his fiance Becca was dancing in it for the Haunted Corn Maze float.  They did a fantastic job dancing the Thriller and they were definitely committed with their scary Zombie costumes.  We really thought that Brynlee would be fine at the parade, but boy were we WRONG! The girl sleeps through the fire alarm that goes off nearly every other day but as soon as those fire trucks and ambulances went by the poor little thing was in tears.  I was able to calm her down and she fell asleep for just a little bit.  We then wanted to go see my old friends at Taco Bell so we walked down there because Brynlee was in a good mood again.  Little did we know that the National Guard float was going down the street spraying a water cannon at the crowd.  Well we saw them when Brynlee was sprayed in the face with a little bit of water.  She actually calmed down pretty fast with this one, because I started singing "Popcorn Popping On the Apricot Tree" in the middle of the street looking like a crazy person.  It's okay though it was totally worth it to see her cute smile again!  I swear she's probably going to be traumatized by the 4th of July.

We then went back home and crashed a little bit before Alan and Becca came over for dinner.  We chatted a ton and just had fun while munching on Chinese take-out and homemade cream cheese wantons.  Instead of going to the fireworks show just about 10 minutes from our apartment Alan brought over a bunch of fireworks in front of our building.  It was so much fun because I've never set off fireworks myself before.

I hope everyone else had just as much fun as we did! Also thank you so much to all the servicemen and women and their families for their efforts to keep this country safe and our freedoms in tact.  My family really appreciates everything that you contribute!

Here is a picture overload because I love taking pictures! Also Brynlee's Yaya got her the most adorable 4th of July romper so of course I found a reason to do a little photo shoot outside.

So how did you all celebrate the 4th of July?
