Fabulous Fourth

Despite not being in Henefer for the 4th of July, we had a super fun Independence weekend. I took the kids to the Lakewood Parade on Saturday (Eric had to work) and they absolutely loved it. Luckily, there was another parade in Dallas, in Highland Park on Monday that Eric could come to with us. We got great seats near the beginning of the route and were showered with candy and toys from all the floats. The weather was also agreeable--not too hot. After the parade, we took the kids to IHOP for a pancake breakfast. They thought they had died and gone to heaven. That afternoon we had a good long refreshing swim in our pool followed by a relaxing evening.
What a wonderful weekend to remember the special people who do and have served our country so bravely.
