We had a blast this July going to parades and watching fireworks. Kyle danced, pointed, clapped and yelled with joy as he took it all in. And you better be sure you were watching or he might grab your head and point it in the right direction. He insisted that we all give our undivided attention to all parade happenings and fireworks. Kinley loved it too and got pretty good at picking up candy that was thrown. She liked the fireworks but what really impressed her were glow sticks that she turned into crowns, necklaces and bracelets fit for a princess. Some of you may say to yourselves, "Where are they catching all these parades?" Well, the first was in Soda Springs, ID on the 4th of July (the best parade we saw). The second was for American Fork Steel Days and the last one was for Pioneer Day on July 24th which is a Utah State holiday. We went to it in Spanish Fork and did fireworks that evening with all the neighbors in our cul-de-sac. Next weekend is the Hihgland Fling so we should catch some more fun.
