This year was one of the best Fourth's of July ever! We did so many fun things and spent so much time with people that we love.
First, the night before, we got our spot at the 4th of July parade in Provo. So my sweet husband, who doesn't even like parades, camped out for Elle and I and our family and friends to hold our spot. Luckily Derrick, Jen, Cecily, and Ainsley kept him company all night, thanks guys.

So early in the morning Elle and I met up with Nate and we watched the hot air balloons launch. Elle was in awe the entire time. She loves balloons as it is, but to see a ton of "giant" balloons, she was in heaven.
Her favorite was the strawberry one.
We ran into Chloe, Mike, and Sandra. Elle was very happy to see her best little buddy.
At the parade Elle wanted to hold her little cousin Ainsley the entire time.

Elle and Ashley were "twins" for the day.
Of course she loved the Curious George balloon.
After the parade we all took naps, then went to a yummy barbecue at Chris and Dixie's house. We ate tons of delicious food. It was a blast.
Thanks to my Grammy and Grandpa we were able to go to The Stadium of Fire. Which Elle and I were very excited about because Miley Cyrus was preforming. I don't know how excited Nate was for Miley, but he did love the Blue Man Group and the fireworks. This is Elle trying to see if "Hannah" was on stage yet.
Nate and I both thought this was so beautiful.
There she is!! Elle wouldn't take her eyes off the stage. She loved dancing and singing the songs she knows. After every song was over she would turn to us and ask "What's next?"
We are so thankful to live in our great country, and enjoy our freedoms everyday. We are also so thankful to all the people who fight or have fought for our Nation.
God bless America!
