4th of July

Our 4th of July was a little untraditional for us. We actually stayed at home...for obvious reasons! Since I have a hard time doing very much walking right now, we spent most of the weekend at home. Ryan got several projects completed including putting together our barbecue that we have had for awhile! We had a really good rain storm in the afternoon that damaged some of our corn. That evening we went to a barbecue at the church and watched the fireworks from the lawn there as well. We were a little disappointed in the fact that Arizona outlaws all fireworks except the ones put on by cities. So we couldn't even have some sparklers. Ryan did buy some confetti popper things but that was the extent of our personal fireworks!

At least you saw the local fireworks! I wish you were here! You know if you were here...we probably would have seen them together!
Now Ryan can cook some of the meals on his fancy barbque!!!!

Well, next year you will have to stop by on your way to good old Idaho Falls!

I remember the first time I ever used a sparkler was while I was engaged and came to Utah for the fourth of July. I had never used a sparkler until then, because CA outlaws all fireworks too!

What is Ryan going to do with his barbeque? Mine has been put together and I even bought propane for it, but I have yet to turn it on...
