Fourth of July Festivities

Fourth of July is one of my FAVORITE holidays.  I love that the weather is always so nice, people are out and about everywhere, there is always good food, etc. etc. The list goes on! Our fourth this year was awesome.  We started the day off with floating the Provo river with the Gee's.

It was so relaxing and not to mention beautiful.  Lately I have really been appreciating Utah's beauty.  We aren't usually around for the summer months so it's been awesome. 

After the river float we grabbed some food, took naps, and then got ready for the night.

Sadly I don't have any other pictures from the night, but we went to the BYU soccer game with the Gee's and Cosgraves.  {they won, of course!} We stayed after and watched the stadium of fire fireworks on the field.  After we went to Sonic for some dessert.  It was a great day!

The weekend before the 4th, B and I headed up to Idaho to celebrate with his family.  The Huntsman's put on a big event/carnival every year and B's mom has been wanting us to come up for it for a while now.  This was the year :) It was a short trip but we did a lot of relaxing in the p.e.r.f.e.c.t. Idaho weather {summer months only, might I add} and had a fun filled day at the carnival.

This chair was my best friend over the weekend.  It was so comfy for naps and just enjoying the nice weather.  It really is SO beautiful up there in the summer.

We hung out with these two adorable girls for the day- Kendra and Kassie

We walked to town one of the nights for dinner..

Carnival day!

There was a hypnotist show there and B got called up on stage.  He wanted to be hypnotized so bad! They had about 25 people go up on stage and about 10 minutes in, the lady told B to go back to his seat. Only him and one other girl got sent back. He was so bummed :( Guess he just doesn't have what it takes to get hypnotized?

They went all out with this event...

 Then that night we came back for the BEST fireworks show I have ever seen. Blew Stadium of Fire out of the water. It was AWESOME!

[Sorry these photos are horrible quality- I forgot my camera so these were all taken on phones.]

Hope your Fourth of July's were as fun-filled as ours :)
