Hi friends! I hope you all had a great 4th of July. We had such a nice holiday spent with friends and family. I’ve been a bit MIA here on the blog, but you can always find me on Instagram (I’ve fallen hard…:) ) Here’s a quick photo recap of my favorite holiday:
On Tuesday, a fire started in Alpine UT, not very far from us. It was so eery to see this giant cloud of smoke over the mountain. We’ve had such a dry season so far this summer, that we are continually praying for rain. We DID get rain on Thursday. It was a total answer to prayer. I don’t think it put this fire out comepletely, but it helped for sure.
As always, I love my festive treats. 🙂
Tuesday night we had our neighborhood BBQ and kid bike parade. I love this tradition. It’s such a fun time to catch up with our neighbors that we don’t get to see that often. Afterwards, they normally have a firework show, but this year they didn’t. I loved that they didn’t with how dry everything is.
Here’s Avery with her bff’s. These three are together non-stop!
We got to break out the 8 dollar light-up mug! Yee-haw! 🙂
Have I ever mentioned we love where we live? We love our friends and neighbors.
Early on the 4th we went to the Balloon Festival. We go every year. For a non-morning person, I love this tradition.

My favorite is the giant coke bottle. It’s huge!
While the kids watch the parade, I watch them. 🙂
Before and After the cannon went off. (poor little buddy)
Other than all the loud noises (which was a lot) this little guy was in heaven!
