The 3 F's

I LOVE the 4th of July! To me it is one of those perfect holidays. Food, family, & fireworks! My family  never does anything too big for the holiday, but we always have a great time. This was the first time in 7 years that I haven't been able to spend the 4th with my family. With the wedding just around the corner we decided it was better for me to be in Utah. Although it was very hard, I'm lucky to have Mark in Utah to give me lots of hugs, kisses, and I love yous. 

Mark's 2 cousins got into town yesterday evening so we had a little BBQ with them, hung out and then watched the Riverton fireworks. It was nice and simple, which was just what I needed.

Since brownie tort is a family favorite, it was a great way for me to bring a piece of home to Utah!
 Getting ready to watch the fireworks. About 2 minutes later the sprinklers came on and we all jumped up VERY fast and moved to a new spot.
 I really enjoyed having a snuggle buddy this year!

Although it was hard to be away I loved getting pictures and seeing pictures on instagram of my family and the fun things they were doing for the 4th! Maybe next year we can all be together!

 Kyle, Jordan, Kassidy, and Jayden camping in Mt. Shasta for the 4th! (I was very jealous of them)

1 week until I start my own family!


  1. Lets spend the 4th together one year. I'd like that. :) PS... Can't believe you get married in a week!?!!!
