We love the 4th of July!!





This is our family's favorite holiday!! Fireworks, parades, candy, meat on the grill, what could be better!!! We missed being with extended family this year but still had a great time. On the night of the 3rd we went and watched Rigby's fireworks and for being such a small town they put on a good show!! We brought popcorn and bug spray and we were set! After keeping the kids up late we woke them up early for the parade, we thought it started at 9 so we showed up at 8:58 and to our surprise we were early for once, it didn't start until 10 so we got great seats!! We were also able to run across the street to the grocery store for breakfast, and potty breaks!! The kids got really into it, I'm sure it had to do with people throwing them candy!! Then we came home for a fun afternoon of putting in sprinkler systems whooo hooo!! We had a really yummy dinner and then Jerrod put on a pretty good show on such a tight budget!! It's a wonderful time to celebrate the independence and freedom we have in this beautiful God-given land of the free and home of the brave!!

Rexburg summers are amazing! I miss them. I love the cute family pics- such adorable kids you have :). I also can't get over how long Jocelyn's hair was- maybe should could donate her next cut to Bostyn...who's hair has yet to reach her shoulders. However, her hair is absolutely adorable and is very much tempting me to chop mine. I was sure hoping we would make it through rexburg on our way up but instead we took a different route- I was bummed we missed you guys. But if you ever head up to Billings I sure hope you give us a call and you are always welcome to stay with us.

So happy the Idaho Guddat family got out and about to enjoy the 4th of July festivities. I loved watching the video but since I can't hear (no closed captioning), it was still fun to watch...hmmm, maybe next time Jerrod you can hold up a sign! :-)
Lots of Love!!!

Thanks for the shout out. We really missed you guys this year for the fourth. We know once again we will meet again for parades, candy, fireworks, and meat on the grill. We love you guys.

Looks like you had a lot of fun!

It's one of my favorite holidays as well!

Glad I was one of the many you dedicated that firework display to. I also distinctively heard Megan say, "Nice tush," as Jerrod bent over to light the fuse. That certainly adds a classy touch.
