Warning: Lots of photos. Make sure you get to the bottom to see all the good stuff!
There is just something about getting together with family that embraces fun and silliness; especially on holidays such as the 4th of July.
As I celebrated with all of my husband's family for the 4th of July, we were surrounded by food, kids, parties, sunshine, (holy heat! I was dying!), and lots of silly grins. After a delicious 4th of July BBQ (obviously), I had to pull out one of my favorite candy ideas for all of the kids to get riled up on before the Fireworks: Mike and Ike Zours. It was perfect. They attacked them! And it was entertaining to watch all of their funny #zourfaces through #collectivebias while eating them. We even got creative and put the Zours on the jello…mmmm yummy. Haha! I have noticed that this type of candy is PERFECT for a movie night. We were going to take these candies inside and watch a movie after the fireworks but the kiddos all fell asleep. So perfect for a summer movie night!
Let me ask you: Can you make these kind of faces?
|FYI: These Zours are located in the "Candy Aisle" of Walmart.|
Also, can you believe it: I didn't take ONE picture of a firework on the 4th!? Does this mean I am a legitimate blogger? Apparently it remains to be seen. Here are some more photos of this awesome holiday weekend. It was definitely one for the books. Tanner's Mom's side all lives up in Oakley and everywhere his grandpa makes a float and all of the grandkids participate in the Oakley parade. We play games and eat yummy food out on the farm afterwards. In the evening, we head down to Heber, Tanner's Dad's side to watch the firework show. Good ol' country 4th of July. Pretty perfect if you ask me! I am so grateful to live in this country with all of the freedoms that I enjoy, with a family that has a lot of fun and makes hilarious faces, and a holiday that includes fireworks :)
I have to comment on some of the photos…come on, guys. It's me. You should know this by now. Some of these are too good to ignore.
