On Monday, the 4th of July, we went down to Provo again for some good food, family, and conversation.
Food time! Our feast included the best guacamole I've ever had. The recipe, made by my Aunt Julie, came from The Sisters Cafe.
During the day, we took Wes to get a much needed haircut. You can actually see his face in this picture! :)
After dinner, it was pinata time! The kids went youngest to oldest so Sydney went 2nd. She's got a pretty good grip!
Uncle Mike dumped out more candy for the kids to grab so they'd have plenty of sugar to celebrate the 4th!
Sydney enjoyed spending the day in her swimming suit. She's attempting to hold still while she eats some of her spoils from the pinata.
Then we went to a church to light off some fireworks (and it rained!). Like my kids, I actually don't love the loud sounds. Can you tell from my expression? :)
Ryan and Wes were loving the fireworks even though they were covering their ears. Wes still makes up songs about them ("I love you fireworks, you are so great. I love to watch you blow up in the sky...").
