Three cheers for the red, white and blue!

I can't help it! I love the fourth! It's always been my favorite holiday.  It's stress free (no buying presents or big hoopla) and it's in the summer and those two things are big factors! I love spending it with friends and/or family. I love the food - hamburgers, dips, appetizers, watermelon, ice cream.  I love the colors! I love the fireworks.  

NO our country is not perfect.  Right now it's a HUGE mess.  But I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.  I'm still grateful to be in the USA. 

I decorated our house a little because we were hosting this year.  We always spend it with the Ormons.  We usually alternate between our houses.  Scott's parents joined us also this year.  

Little flags every where! 

We went to the fireworks stand in the morning! Nothing is as American as lighting your hard earned money on fire! ha! 

Yes 2020 looked a little different. ha! 

I got one good picture of the kids and Milli and of course SOMEBODY wasn't in to it. ha! 

No dog but cute kids in their July 4th outfits! I have sweet pictures from every 4th that are my favorite! 

The kids spent a great week in the country with their grandparents last week and we were glad they could join us for the holiday! 

Eating dinner! 

Gah - when did they get so big????

What kills me is the top picture was only 5 years ago.  It seems like yesterday I was propping them all up by the fence and now they are practically teenagers.  In just five years - so much changed! I guess that can be sad or hopeful depending on where you are n life.  I keep telling myself how much things can change in a year to give myself some hope right now.  I mean - let's be honest - look how our lives have changed in just FIVE MONTHS? 

Everything is always fun when I'm with my bestie! 

We had so much fun doing fireworks.  They were going off all around us like CRAZY! We usually have lots of fireworks around us but this year was on another level. I told Laurie I thought people just needed to set something on fire this year. ha! 

My sweet firecracker! It's fun with older kids.  I remember hating the fireworks when I had toddlers and needed them to sleep.  Now the kids were all up until midnight and had the best time!
