We love going to the 4th of July festival. Everything is completely free. Hot dogs, snow cones, cotton candy, drinks, pony rides, petting zoo, balloon animals, patriotic music by the band/orchestra, bounce houses, etc. It's always a good time. And did I mention free? ;)

|Harper wanted to go in the petting zoo but then quickly wanted off the ground|

|Harper begged me to give her a patriotic mani/pedi. So fun.|
|Patiently waiting to ride the ponies|
|This kid LOVES animals. (Harper got cold feet)|
We came home and played and got food ready to grill out.
|I can never resist making some sort of flag dish|
|"Mom, take my picture with my 4th of July snowman!"|
Tobias had to work but Rachel, Silas, & Zion came over to hang out and eat.
|our "water park"|
It started raining but we decided to try to watch the fireworks anyway. We weren't up for the crowds at the park where they were shooting them off, so we just parked at a nearby field and piled into the back of the van with the door up to keep dry. A perfect end to a great day.
