We started the day off at the parade on Main Street. We were lucky enough to get a spot right in front of Josh's work! Yahoo! We were so hot by the end though! The kids loved it, and had fun catching candy.
Kaley loved the Las Chalitas from Spanish Fork High. They were dancing to "California Gurls," her favorite song!
We went home after the parade to cool off a bit. We had lunch, and then hit the Carnival! The kids each picked a couple of rides each. It was hot, but fun!
This picture cracks me up! The kids were in line, gave their tickets and were ready to find a boat to ride in, and they were all full! So they had to go back out again and wait in line. You can SEE the disappointment on their faces!
Finally! On a boat ride. This ride is ridiculously loud! Each boat has two bells to ring, and EVERY child in there is ringing their bells.
This is what Sophie looked like on the 2 minute ride home! Jace was still chipper as ever! I think he was just happy to have the air blowing on him!
Then it was off to Grandma's house to cool off in the pool! The kids have really gotten to be good swimmers thanks to swim lessons. They had fun showing off their new skills to Grandma and Grandpa! Even Bella figured out her floaty! She doesn't really need any help when she's in it.
After 4 hours of swimming, we headed back to SF to make it home in time to see the fireworks. We found a good spot in the church parking lot, and waited. The show was supposed to start at 10:15. We waited as long as we could until 10:44, and then loaded up to head back home. Just as we were leaving the parking lot at 10:45, the fireworks started. We pulled over somewhere else, only to hear Thomas, Kaley and Bella whining saying how tired they were and how they wanted to go home. So we headed home. It was a fun day, but we were exhausted by the end! We did get a few pictures of us waiting for the fireworks to start, even though we didn't really see any! :)
Happy 24th of July!!!
