Independence Day is our family's favorite holiday, it might have something to do with a husband/father who is a history education major and loves anything to do with the founding fathers and the great old USofA!! But also we love the warm weather, the food, the BBQ's, the gatherings, etc. etc. etc. This year because the 4th was on a Sunday we had a whole weekend of festivities!! On Friday the 2nd we went with our friends the Jones family to see the Rigby firework show. While we were waiting for it to start we ate snacks, played games, talked, and lit sparklers. The kids sat up on top of the vans and kept asking, "is it time yet?" we kept trying to stall them and tell them, "any minute now" but it was A LOT of minutes. Finally the show started and it was fun but very short due to budget cuts this year!! All in all we had lots of fun!
