4th of July

For the 4th of July this year we went down to Gunnison, not only for the fourth but for a family reunion. We headed down on the third to get things started. We went to the family farm for food games and fun. We ate while the kids played in the water.

Our little family hanging out at the farm in the was hot!

Now small towns know how to do festivities! The 4th of July is always fun and a big deal down in Gunnison but especially this year. Gunnison was celebrating it's 150 years......wahoo! Anyway that night they had a big dinner and auction. Then they had some motocross bikers come and after that a concert with the Osmonds' (not Donnie and Marie unfortunatley but there older brother who I have never heard of but was pretty good) and then a big fire work show, almost as cool as the stadium of fire!

Easton and Gracie waiting for all the fun to begin

The bikers jumping over a big dirt was pretty crazy!

After the concert, Easton and I watching the firework show

So the next day, on the 4th they do a flag ceremony in the morning along with breakfast and a parade of course! I told you small towns know how to paartay! Then after the parade a carnival at the park along with lunch.

Since Gracie is at that busy stage in life, she wouldn't stop for one second for me to get a picture of her in her cute 4th of July outfit. So sorry this is what you get!

Later that night we went over to my sister Jamie's for a barbecue with the fam and fireworks. After that we played volleyball until midnight. It was a great fourth!
