Fourth of July

We enjoyed a fun Fourth this weekend.  Of course the day started out with church and then we had a neighborhood cul de sac party/BBQ in the evening. 

I provided a salad and a couple of desserts.  One of the desserts was a fun ice cream sandwich bar.  Check out all the details tomorrow over at Your Homebased Mom.

It was a huge hit with the kids and adults!  Everyone had on their red, white and blue!

Tthe neighborhood girls all had their patriotic tattoos as usual!!

Even neighbor Tom showed his patriotism!

We were going to head down to Oak Hills to watch their fireworks display but we were having such a good time with the neighbors we decided to stay.  We could actually see the OH fireworks from our cul de sac!  Between all the neighbors we had plenty of fireworks to shoot off, not all of them legal :)!

Cali and Declan snuggling and watching the show!

Logan was able to go to the Stadium of Fire in Provo and hear Carrie Underwood.  Clark spent part of the weekend in St. George doing some hiking.  Photos of that to come!

If you ask the girls what the best part of the Fourth of July is they will probably tell you the potato gun!  Pictures of that coming soon!!!

What a fun tradition. Our children loved the potato guns too. I kept wondering where all my hair spray was going. Can't wait for the recipes. See yo soon.

Sounds like your 4th was perfect from start to finish!

For years we did the neighborhood thing as well and loved it, but sadly everyone is slowly moving away. The new neighbors are either older or more seclusive, so unfortunately, it's just not the same anymore. The house directly across the street sold while we were on vacation so I'm hoping and praying for great new neighbors!

I thought of you while we were in SLC. We ate at Red Iguana. Oh my what great food! And for the first time ever, Cafe Rio! I was in heaven!

So glad you enjoyed your first Cafe Rio experience - yum!!!

We are very fortunate to have a lot of our original neighbors - been together for 16 years!!!
