A Fun Day

The 4th was a great day. I already posted on our morning activities, so now I'll let ya know what a great evening we had. We planned on going to Idaho Falls the watch the fireworks there. (They are rated #20 in the nation, so that's some incentive.) So we cooked ribs in the oven all day and packed up the cooler with some other picnic foods, packed some games and Finding Nemo for Afton. We went to Fremond Park, which was awesome. We were expecting everything to be super overcrowded, but it actually was pretty nice. We sat up on this hill and ate our picnic dinner. Then we played some frisbee, while Afton threw and chased after her bouncy ball. (Yes, Dad, I still remind her that it's from Grampy!) It was so cute. Then Tad and I played some games while Afton watched Nemo. Then came the show. Every now and then someone would be shooting off some fireworks, so Afton was able to get used to them before the big ones. It was quite the show. After the last five songs we kept saying that was probably the last one, but we kept being surprised. They were huge and Afton kept saying, "Whoa, whoa!" The drive home only took about 40-45 minutes, which we were quite impressed about after hearing talk from everyone about the awful traffic. All in all, a great year's celebration of the 4th!

I wasn't going to say nuthin' but Idaho Falls pretty much rocks. I'm glad you figured that out. Afton is getting so big--I can't wait to see her again! And Cara, you are as gorgeous as ever...I would love to see a belly shot now that you're all pregnant--what do you say?
