Evening Picnic with the Jones'

Every year we find a fun spot in the foothills behind our home to
set up a picnic to watch the fireworks from the city below.
This year didn't disappoint.
We always make sure we are in our spots to by 8:00 to watch
the amazing jets do their heart-thumping flyover before the fireworks.
While waiting, Ollie and Claire got itchy eyes and some serious allergies.
Ms. Jones and her handsome man Spencer came to Utah to
spend this happy holiday with us.

We are so lucky to live in this amazing country!
We have to much to be thankful for.
My heart swells this time of year as I think to my heritage and ancestors who
gave up much to come to this wonderful county for freedom.
I hope I am making them proud.
