God bless the U.S.A...

I've said it more than once but I'll say it again, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. This year it landed on a Sunday so we had a three day celebration.
Me and my sisters plus Edie and Cashy at the Kaysville Parade.
Chelsea, Lindsey, Cash, Alicia, Me, Eden, Lydia, Indie and Mom.
Munching on an apple before the big parade began.
Fourth of July cuties...


Handsome little devil.
This year the parade was super long and super hot. This was my favorite float because it was probably one of about 5 actual floats.
Cort and Rodgie were in the parade this year. It was fun to see them and they hooked us up!

Tony gave the girls a birds eye view...


For the past three years the Taco Time float has thrown out beads and every year we end up with a bunch. This year was no different.
How quickly this...
can turn to this...
My babies.
My love...
On to the rockin' Rigby bar-b-que where we all eat till we're sick and then gorge ourselves on homemade ice cream.
My sweet grandpa...
My flag cake.
Keeping with tradition, we went to Eaglewood Golf Course for a picnic and fireworks.
And of course we had to take our traditional photo...

Only this year we've added two little ones to the tradition.

Thank you to all the brave men and women who have defended this great country. I feel blessed to live in America and enjoy the freedoms that I have.
