This year we celebrated the 4th of July on the 3rd.
We went to Great Grandma and Grandpa Richens' house for a BBQ and to watch fireworks.
When we got out of the car we noticed that it was really leaking something. It looked like water, but had a pink tinge to it. Kollin figured out that it was the water pump or possibly a hose that came loose.
So we got it towed so there wouldn't be any further damage done. Good thing it should all be covered under the warranty!
After we got done eating in the backyard, one of Grandma and Grandpa's neighbors came over and invited us to come over and bounce in their bounce houses they had.
The kids loved it!
And Tanner especially loved the slide.
We set up chairs and blankets on the side of their house where we had a perfect view of the North Salt Lake fireworks.
Tanner was getting pretty fussy and squirmy before they started since it was a ways past his bedtime.
But right when they started?....
It was so nice that he sat and watched instead of screamed at the loud booms like he did last year.
Kollin had to work on the 4th and didn't get home until around 5. That was actually kind of an early day for a normal work day. But his manager was saying that he wanted everyone off by 3 on the 4th. So I wasn't too happy. Oh well.
When Tanner went down for his nap, I blew up the kiddie pool (thank you air compressor!) and filled it with water so the sun could warm it up a little.
After Kollin got home we all went out and took a dunk.
The water was not as cold as it would have been if I had waited to fill it right then.
I know, Kollin's farmer tan is fabulous!
Tanner had lots of fun splashing and soaking me.All in all, it was a nice (mostly) relaxing 4th of July!
