Independence Day!

This is late! But we had a fabulous 4th of July!
 Not having internet realllllly cuts into the blogging game... we're going on a month now internet-free at our apartment... yikes.

Anyway, the festivities started at the crack of dawn by attending the annual breakfast-in-the-park (no pictures from that shindig... you don't want to see me at 7AM anyway). 
Donuts, flag raising ceremony, you know, the works. 
Actually it probably started the night before when JP and I rode vespa scooters up and down the parade route along with Eric and Kimmi (a grand tradition in Provo is to sleep out the night before the parade and "save" your spot... we didn't sleep out but we did see a lot of our friends and fireworks and enjoyed how lively everyone was even at midnight!)

After the breakfast it was off to the parade! Mostly just to chat with friends and eat more good food, but the actual parade wasn't too shabby either! Provo really knows how to celebrate the fourth right. 

Then I might have taken a little nap ;)

The evening was full of time spent with family, BBQing sliders, games on the lawn, and firework watching from the balcony! My parents live on the mountain so their view can't be beat!

Hope you had a safe and happy fourth!! Hooray for America!
