Independence Day

We had a gret 4th of July celebration this year.  July 3rd was my sister, Emily's, 19th birthday, so my family came and stayed for the weekend to celebrate.  Kirk made a yummy german chocolate cake, which we all enjoyed, a lot.

On Saturday, Kirk's parents came over for dinner too.  It was fun to have a house full of people and enjoy a good dinner.  After dinner, Kirk's parents had to go home, but the rest of us went to BYU to watch the fireworks.  We staked out a spot on the lawn a little ways outside the stadium.  We were there a couple of hours early, but we had a lot of fun just hanging out.  Zoe thought that it was great fun to be outside, with all the people.  She really enjoyed the blanket on the grass and had a good time laying down on it and rolling all over.  She also really enjoyed wandering around and making friends with all the people around us.  Robby spent most of the time sitting on the blanket playing with my iPhone.

The kids loved the fireworks.  Zoe kept clapping and putting her hands up in the air.  She seemed to think they were pretty cool.

Here are a bunch of pictures from the weekend.

Zoe likes to pretend that everything is a phone right now.  This time, it was her shoe.

It was a great weekend.  I love it when we get to spend time with family.  I am so thankful to live in this great country and to enjoy so much freedom.
