Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Since Grandma and Papa Smith were out of town for most of the 4th of July holiday, we got together tonight for the 24th of July holiday (for those not in Utah that is a State holiday called Pioneer Day).  With the recent change in the fireworks laws in Utah, it is a free for all for pretty much the entire month of July and so fireworks were on the agenda.  I had gotten a long late afternoon nap to be able to stay awake for them.

After eating dinner out on the patio, we needed some cooling down so Grandma pulled out the water guns and just about everyone got wet.  I was even used as a human shield by a few folks (apparently it is bad form to shoot a water gun at a child with a hole in her airway - hee hee). 

We dried off in the late evening sun and then I got to experience sparklers for the first time.  I thought they were great and called it my "magic wand".  As soon as it got dark enough we let off some fireworks and as aerials are now allowed in Utah we got quite a show from a few of the ones we had purchased as well as others in the neighborhood.  It was pretty late but well worth it!
