Yesterday was the 4th of July and we were able to go and spend a couple days with Jer's family! The 4th in Kaysville is a big deal, let me tell you! Our day was packed with fun activites.
We started our day bright and early with a 5K! My first, to be exact. If any of you know me, you know I absolutely hate to run and don't do it if I don't have to. When Jer's mom told us the family was planning on participating I decided that I needed to just get over my running hatred and give it a try.
And guess what?
Next up was the parade.
After the parade we walked through the carnival they have and grabbed some yummy tacos for lunch.
In the evening we had a family picnic in the Barton's backyard with lots of the family.
The heat had subsided a lot by the time we had our picnic so it was beautiful out and so relaxing to sit and enjoy everyone's company for a couple hours.
I'm kicking myself for not trying to get a picture at the fireworks show, but we did go to see the fireworks later that night.
It's times like these that Jer and I remember how grateful we are for our families and the great relationships we have with them. Not everyone is so fortunate and we know what we've got is a really good thing! :o)
Happy 4th everybody and thank goodness for the rain today! Let's hope it will help get those fires under control!
