the fourth

We started off planning to head to Utah the morning of the 4th of July to see a bunch of family.
But, even though flights had looked good up until the morning before, they filled up and we actually didn't make it out.  Bummer.

So we headed home in time for naps.
Then it was beautiful outside and we were all in our red, white, and blue so I made everyone take a quick round of family photos.
Then we had a really yummy barbeque.
Then we went to local fireworks.

The fireworks were awesome and then we took our way-past-bedtime kiddos home.

The next day we went to our neighborhood's pool.
We thought it might be crowded, turned out we were almost the only ones there.
So perfect.

 So even though the weekend didn't go exactly as planned, it was an awful good time with my little family.
