A rainy 4th

We loved seeing the firework show at Pleasant Grove Junior High on the 4th of July last year, so we decided to go again this year. When we got there it was really cloudy and soon after getting all our stuff set up it started raining. Luckily in one of our bags was the cover for our camping tent, and we found a section of fence and fashioned ourselves a little shelter from the storm.

Taylor absolutely loved our little makeshift tent.

So did Mommy and Ollie.

It took me almost a whole box of matches to finally get one that would stay burning long enough to light a sparkler, but it was worth it to see how excited Taylor got when we finally gave him one to play with.

My mom was nice enough to take Oliver home when he was ready for bed so that I could stay with Sean and Tay to watch the fireworks. This was the first year that Taylor was really into the show, and watching his little face light up was more fun than actually watching the show.

Even with the rain we had a lot of fun. I hope everyone had a great 4th!
