Let the 4th of July Festivities Begin!

Josh's family loves the 4th of July! I get so excited about all the activities that are associated with America's birthday and the Freedom Festival. On Saturday we went to the Children's parade. Although not usually on the family to-do list, it holds a special part of my heart after working at Adventure Time. It was also nice, because it was a little practice for Logan and a Parade, and he loved it!

There are popsicles at the end of the parade and we had fun letting Logan try to eat one.

We also went to the Patriotic service and Logan absolutely loved the big band music. When music starts to play he will wave his right hand with vigor as if he were leading the music. He lasted through part of Glen Beck's talk and then I left to put him to bed, but he made it quite awhile!

Then this morning Logan and I went to see the Colonial Days opening parade, which was very sort, but fun nonetheless. There were bagpipes and they shot off a whole bunch of guns at the end, which was very loud, but Logan was only startled, no crying :)

The Freedom Festival is something I definitely miss what with not being in Provo anymore. It was always such a big deal at our house -- the balloons, the parade (and the children's parade when we were younger), the fireworks...all so fun! I'm pretty sure the Freedom Festival is a big reason why the 4th of July is my favorite holiday...which is why I'm a little sad to be spending it this year in an airplane. But I'm sure there are fireworks in the Pacific Northwest, right? :)
