4th of July

 Since 2006 we've been going to Perry for the 4th of July. This was the first year we did something different. 
We enjoyed the day with friends, food, fireworks and games. We really like the new law this year that let us shoot off aerial fireworks. We spent a good wad of cash, but had a blast! (Pun intended)

I was too busy recording that I sorta missed the whole effect, but luckily we can shoot them off for another two weeks!

Provo Freedom Festival

Last Friday I took work off and met my brother in Provo for the Freedom Fest. When they lived here they would go, but I've never seen it before. What a beautiful sight! It was so magical.

 All the balloons took off from Provo High

 There was a darth vador, pig, and smokey the bear balloon.
 This balloon is one of the largest in the world standing at about 150 feet. It took a long time to blow up and they never ended up flying it because there was no wind. The pilots go all over the world to fly and are sponsored by Coke.

 They had a target set up in the middle of the field and the pilots had bean bags they would throw from their balloons to hit the target. There were also balloons that if they popped they would get extra points. Very fun.
 Towards the end most of the balloons had flown off and landed elsewhere. They were all supposed to come back, but because there was no wind they couldn't do much about it.

 Once they deflated the giant coke balloon they had all the kids line up to help get the air out. It was so funny to see hundreds of kids rolling along in a line.

It was so nice to be with family that I don't get to see very often. Thanks for coming down guys! We love you.

Just keep swimming..

We had guests at our pool! It was so fun to play with the kids. Bev is quite the swimmer and was so proud that she could do it herself. I spent most the time pulling Jane around in the water.
