Fourth of July

AJ kicked off the morning by helping grandma with her daily dog-doody round-up.

Then we went with Uncle Paul and Grandpa to the West Jordan Parade.

Only in Utah can you see a full-scale float featuring Captain Moroni.

Although she did score some candy,

her favorite prize was this dashing fan.

A popsicle purchase by Uncle Paul came in close second, although it also cost him his chair.

AJ said her favorite part was "waving at the princesses".

Then we went back to the house and I got to spend some quality time with our new nephew Jaron, SO CUTE!

After dinner we did fireworks and sparklers in the back yard.

Later, we walked down to the park to see the big city fireworks. Craig was freezing! After all, it had dipped into the low 70s! HA HA. I think we have officially turned into warm-blooded Texans.

I love the pictures of Utah and the family. It's good to see faces of people we miss!
