We decided the night before to make the drive down here to Arizona for the 4th of July. We got up early that morning and made it in time for everything. Our family usually has a BBQ and then goes swimming... when we were little it was always so fun for us because it was the only day of the year my whole family actually went swimming together.
Here's Kyle cookin' the burgers.
Then we all went swimming... Eric looks like he's trying to escape in this picture.
A 3 tiered chicken fight!
Then we played some Wii. Mason had to beat everyone's Wii Fit records.
He's hardcore too.
This is Stacey feeling anxious because she holds all the records that Mason is breaking.
Then we went to our city's fireworks show. It's a colorful event. We were in the extreme minority. I don't remember it being like that, but it was still fun. Mason ran in the 20 yard dash with the 25-50 year old men. He won 3rd place. This is the ribbon he got. He was very proud. It's probably because every other contestant was intoxicated - but it was well earned.
Here's our little spot!
I hope your 4th was as good as ours!
