Fireworks and Fox Hill

I have said it many times, and I will say it again,
but Provo, Utah is the place to be if you're celebrating our country's birthday!  
So much going on, so much patriotism, and so 
many activities and community love.
It's pretty amazing.
I have lived in Provo nearly all my life and have partaken of the 
Provo 4th of July experience and each year I am always amazed.
Last Saturday our little family, plus Lucy's family (and my parents),
 watched the fireworks from our backyard pool
(thanks to The Stadium of Fire!). 

I passed out glow sticks, licorice, and flags while the kids swam
and waited for the sun to go down and the fireworks to start.
Fox Hill is where it's for the firework show.
Our house sits just above the stadium which makes us 
about eye-level to the twinkling show.
I bought a swan and pizza floatie for the pool and 
sadly they both deflated within
an hour after blow up.  That was disappointing.

I thank my lucky stars every single day for this home, this property and my city.
Which also makes moving THAT much harder.  Oh man.  
I felt such heartache, but the knowledge that we need to
 move overwhelms me too, and I know that is what God wants for our family.
That takes so much faith- and not just from me, but every single one of us.
And we're doing it.

Pretty much everything I wear (and my girls)
on a daily basis comes from Roolee Boutique. 
 They have the cutest dresses, t shirts, and skirts 
with super affordable prices.
