We love the 4th of July at our house. It is a day of non-stop fun every year. And this year we added Stadium of Fire to the mix. So great! We had the best time despite the hot and humid temperatures. The firework show really is amazing. Jack loved it and Sophie felt comfortable once I covered her ears. Love celebrating our nation’s independence!
We started at the Granite breakfast and parade which we love! It is the best parade ever for kids. You can sit close to the action, it is only about 45 minutes tops and they throw tons of candy. We came home with well over a baggie full. So the kids stay entertained the whole time. Love it!
In the afternoon, we went to Grandma Pett’s for her annual carnival. Jack got really into it this year and collected about 20 tickets which he redeemed for a grocery sack full of prizes. He loved it and talked about how he can’t wait for next year’s carnival!
After that we made our way to BYU and trucked our kids quite the distance to the stadium. They were champs though. They always amaze me with their stamina for being such little bodies. We loved the show! Our only setback was being right in the middle of our row which meant trucking over about 20 people for potty and treat breaks! But other than that, it could not have been better.
Poor Sophie lady started getting goopy, runny eyes this day. It was amplified by staying up about 4 hours past her bedtime in these pictures. But it ended up lasting about 5 days and spread to Jack so it must have been some form of pink eye. Blah!
