Our 4th

We are happily vacationing right now in my quaint hometown in Southern Utah and because of this, I have been happily slacking on my blogging…and my laundry. Which is in a huge pile right now. I’ll get to that in a minute. First – the 4th of July! We had a great one. We spent the morning in another quaint town in Southern Utah called Parowan (home to Kenny’s grandma whom we love and adore). They had a fun parade that was perfect for my little sprouts and such a great way to kick off our Independence Day.

What’s a parade without candy from people on festive floats?

and rub-on tattoos from cool, friendly Harley riders? Gotta love Parowan.

After the parade we headed to the park for games and popsicles.

Then we spent the afternoon back home with my family swimming, BBQing, picnicing, and fireworking.

Yes, we watched our fireworks well before dark. We didn’t make it to the night time fireworks since Ellie decided to wake up super early (she was SO excited for the day’s festivities) and Addison decided this was a good day to NOT take her nap… and I decided overly tired kids wouldn’t make for a fun late night show. Maybe next year. Lucky for us it doesn’t take much to impress them. :) We had a great 4th! (Bummer. Laundry time.)

xoxo, Erin

  1. Parowan on the 4th…what a great tradition! My step dad’s parents live there so we go there sometimes for the parades or the Iron County fair. Fun!

  2. We also took advantage of the small town festivities in Richfield-gotta love it! The girls are gorgeous & getting so big! :0)

  3. Erin, so glad you guys had a great day! Love small town celebrations, they know how to do it right. SO excited to hang out with you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (How’s that laundry coming?)

  4. Don’t you just love the small town celebrations-we really miss being able to go to Enterprise to celebrate-my kids are always in school and we just never seem to make it there. I think we are trying for the 24th though. Really, we just miss St. George all together!!

  5. Looks fun-I really wanted to go to Cedar city this year but it didn’t work out. I say Cedar City for next 4th of July –who’s with me?! :-)

  6. Did you have to make us homesick? Did you hear about the talk of the excavation on Matheson’s lot, next door to Carol Wright’s house? Isn’t it just historical! Everyone is talking about it!
    I declare we will meet you in Parowan one of these years for the 4th. We can go gun shootin’ up the canyon.

  7. Ugh, I’m so behind on reading your blog! Thank heavens you’ve been behind too so I only had two to read. (Way too many to’s in that sentence)

    I thought you guys when we went through St. George AND when we went through Parawan!

    You can come home now though. I miss you!
