Our 4th was very relaxed this year, but it was very nice. We spent the day at a family reunion on Steve's side of the family and then we had a family barbecue at our house. The barbecue was nice because it was just the three of us and we decided to have a "dinner show" of fireworks while we ate. Mikayla always goes to bed at 7:00, so we knew there was no way she would stay up for the main event. We pushed her until 8:30 and she loved watching the sparklers and little fountain fireworks.

Mesmerized by the show
After the dinner show, Mikayla was done, so we put her down for the night. We then had my family over to watch the Stadium of Fire fireworks. My family has spent many years watching the fireworks from this house and so it was kind of sad to think this was the last year we would be able to do this (the house is up for sale, so most likely it won't be in our family by the next 4th). Good times 2009
