We had a great time celebrating the Fourth of July in Idaho Falls and Island Park!
Waiting for the fireworks
Hiking in Island Park
-Birthday party for our niece Remington. Lots of good food, including the best gf cupcakes I've ever eaten-- in fact one of the best cupcakes I've ever eaten--period!
-Time with family. My nephew Max was so cute on the Fourth watching the parade. He did not stop waving his flag the entire time.
-Breakfast on the Boulevard with my family and old neighbors and ward members. I look forward to the rhubarb syrup every year!
-Model T rides. Jackson joined his cousins Hayley and Max in throwing candy down the parade route before it started.
-The Idaho Falls parade. I've always loved going and it's even more fun going with a son of my own. We scored at the parade this year with tons of candy, ice cream, and tennis balls.
-BBQ with homemade lemon sorbet and chocolate ice cream.
-Fireworks. They are always amazing and we scored great parking this year. Plus, Julie brought glow sticks which is always a good thing. Jackson enjoyed the show and kept saying "wow!" He was pretty tired about halfway through though.
-Island Park: fourwheeler rides, campfire with s'mores, pinball, walks, seeing a buffalo during a quick drive in the park, hiking by coffeepot with my family (even though it turned out to be more like rock climbing!)
-Colder than normal temperatures. We were freezing at the beginning of the parade. Luckily it warmed up and the afternoon was nice.
-Not enough time! I left wishing I had a few more days to spend at the cabin.
Hope you all had a great Fourth of July. As for me, girls camp is next week so time to get back to reality!
