4th of July - late!

We decided to brave the crowds and go to the Provo Freedom Festival Parade. Ryan was a good sport, parades are not his favorite but I LOVE them! I think it's all the bagpipes (more on that later).
The boys enjoyed themselves and especially enjoyed the candy and pirate hats handed out. It was a great morning followed by breakfast at Mimi's and fireworks at Grandma and Grandpas. I think the 4th is one of my favorite holidays because it is so relaxed. I am not up all night wrapping presents or preparing food, or even cleaning the house. We just show up to a parade and eat out and do fireworks. Doesn't get any easier than that!

I'm with Ryan. Not loving the parades. Actually, I don't like bagpipes, either. But, y'all look like you had fun. Glad it was a good one.

Great shots. I had no idea that the McCoys were such Redsox fans. It looks like it was a pretty good time.

I love parades--I think we'll even brave pioneer day. And I always love the marching band--since I was kind of a band geek :)
