4th of July 2015, day 1

One of my favorite things about the 4th of July here in Provo is the 
traditional hot air balloon fest. Early on the mornings leading
 up to the 4th of July, hot air balloons flood Provo's sky.  
Since I hike the "Y" daily, I watched the whole process of the balloons 
from start to finish. 
Then I ran home and woke up the Little Nies and the 
Jones family to come out to the front porch and view the splendor.  
Each of us picked our favorite colorful balloon and we watched it until it landed
on some grassy park or parking lot in Provo. 
Then Spencer washed our windows.  
Was he telling us something????
We made panini's for lunch before we headed up the canyon for a 
delightful drive with the children.
I like to show off Utah's amazing mountains to these Arizona folk.
If I didn't know you and you had never been to Utah before, I'd take
you on this mountain journey too.
