Fun Fourth of July

As you can see by the smile on her face, she absolutely loves to ride Grandpa's horses. This was her first real ride with a saddle on Opey. She wasn't scared at all and kept saying "Yee-haw!" spoken like a true little cowgirl!
Hali loved the parade, and caught on quickly to catching the candy. The only problem was that once she got a piece she immediately sat down to eat it (wrapper and all).

Hali loved the little train at the park. So much that she got to ride it twice! Once with Mommy and once with Daddy.

My Dad always tells my nephews to wave to the pretty girls in the parade. So Hali decided to do the same, but didn't only wave to the pretty girls, instead she waved to everybody in the parade. It was very cute!
As usual we had a lot of fun on the fourth of July in Richfield. There is nothing more fun than going home to see old friends, and spending time with family. We went to the annual parade, had some drinks and Grandma and Grandpa's house, walked around the park, had a bb-que, and watched the fireworks. Hali liked the fireworks or "pretties" for the first five minutes then she was bored, and just wanted to walk all over which was a big problem because it was so dark. So we created a solution by putting several glow sticks in her pajamas. It was pretty funny, and worked very well. Once we did that she didn't get far. All in all we had a great time!
