When we were kids, our family would camp out on the route the night before the Freedom Festival Parade in Provo. Our goal was always to get the most candy during the parade the next day.
|This isn't the 4th of July. This was the Chinese Lantern Festival. I just thought it was a cute picture of us kids.|
Then in the evening, we would stake out a spot on the BYU Creamery lawn to watch the fireworks going off for the Stadium of Fire. While we waited for the fireworks to start, we'd have a picnic and set off our own fireworks in the parking lot.
|My little brother and sister a long time ago!|
|The men manning the grills!|
Pancakes on the 4th of July taste so good. Like freedom.
Happy Independence Day! Hope it's a safe one!
