Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth of July weekend! We started the festivities on thursday the 3rd. Every year my family goes to South Salt Lake's Freedom Fest at my old high school Granite. They always put on such a great firework show. And this year I swear the finale was at least 15 minutes long. It kept going and going. Most of my family went out of town this year, so we invited our friends Rob and Andee and their little boy Josh. And my parents ended up joining us as well. We were so excited for Wesley to watch the fireworks. We thought he would love them. Last year he was so terrified he tried climbing over my shoulder the whole time. We thought this year would be different. We were wrong. He was still a little scared and didn't like the ones with loud booms. Half way through the show he went and sat on my Dad's lap and actually watched the rest of the show. The whole drive home he kept saying "I see fireworks!" It was cute. Beckett on the other hand was completely mesmerized. I wish I would have taken a picture of him. It was hilarious! On the fourth we went and saw Kung Fu Panda with my parents. It was a really cute movie. Wes really liked it and couldn't stop imitating Po the panda the rest of the day. Later that night we went to a BBQ over at Rob's parents. His Grandparents were in town from LA. This was their first time meeting Beckett. It was fun to sit and visit with them. After eating some delicious grub we lit some of our own fireworks. Of course Rob started out with the loudest one and it sent Wesley running and crying to the backyard. It took a little persuasion, but he was finally able to sit on my lap and enjoy some of the fireworks. What a great weekend!

We wish we couldve joined you guys for the fireworks! Looks like you had fun. Thats funny about Wesley not liking the loud noises from the fireworks.....Rowan didnt care for the loud ones either. He had to sit on my lap most of the time. Beckett is so cute! Love the video

I miss going to Granite's fireworks! I haven't been in like four years and I have heard nothing but good things about the show this year. Your boys are just adorable. The video of Beckett rolling over is super cute. It makes me excited for when Collin becomes more animated!

I miss going to Granite as well. Reg's birthday is on the 3rd so I doubt if I will ever be able to go. "Hey Reg, do you want to spend your birthday at Granite?" ...doesn't sound so appealing. lol. Not to mention we don't even live in Utah. :)
