4th of July

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July.
Mine was fantastic!
Our day started with Kirk and ALL the boys being up VERY early 
 putting a turkey, pork roast and beef roast in the fire pit to cook for the day.
Kira, Miss H and I left for Rupert for the parade.
Sergio had to work but the parade route went by where he works so he was able to watch it with us.
I have said it before and I will say it again,
 I LOVE a parade and my favorite part is the color guard.
I love the American Flag, it truly makes me happy.
I like small town parade especially, that you hardly will ever see a hat on a real man,
 or someone without their hand on the heart;
a sign  that they have been taught respect not only for our flag but being an American
 and importantly not afraid of those who might "tease" them.
It was so fun to watch Miss H at her first parade. 
and of coarse she looked so darn cute!
At 4pm the meat came out of the pit
 and the family and friends started showing up with tons of  food.
and we ate and visited and laughed!
even Miss H was enjoying herself..

Josh, Ali and Miss C had been out of town and arrived in time to be with us for the fireworks.
Miss C loved her sparkler.
and could hardly wait for the fireworks to begin.
and when I say fireworks I mean FIREWORKS!
I do not want to know how many dollars went up into the air, but I will say...
THANK YOU MONTE AND show I have seen in FOREVER!are you ready for some of the sites we enjoyed...

One Bad Mother-in-Law
I have to tell you about this firework...As the guys were "staging" the fireworks (yes, they had them in order of how they were going to be lit off...Sergio walks over to me carrying this "Box" he says, " I do not understand what this firework's name means..." with a smirk on his face...HAHAHA....
and my favorite...
how many stripes are on the flag?
An hour or so later...
it was time to clean up and again the fire pit was put to work.
It was a GREAT 4th of July!
