The first week of July

I love the month of July. Summer is in full swing, fireworks happen, holidays are celebrated, parades come marching by and of course it's my birthday! 

On the first I went up to Bridal Veil Falls with my young women. I also brought Lila along. She loved feeding the fish and hanging out with the "big kids". 

Then on my birthday I had such a great time. I woke up to breakfast in bed, then I got to open my presents… a beautiful KitchenAid! I have been wanting one since before Micah and I were married so he decided to just go ahead and get me one. I'm glad he waited though because we were able to actually afford it, I got the color that I wanted and it came with so many fun extras! I can't wait to use it!  After presents, I got a delicious cake from Cravings Bakery in PG. So yum! Finally, Micah made us dinner. I finally used my mani/pedi gift certificate that a couple of my friends gave me and went patriotic. I also got a visit from my VT. They brought me a delicious cupcake. Then a really sweet lady in my ward brought me some balloons, flowers, and a charm with the Salt Lake temple on it. It was especially sweet because two of the balloons were actually for my kids. The yellow smiley face for Brighton and the princess one for Lila. How thoughtful! I had a wonderful 26th birthday.

On the fourth, I woke up early and got ready for the Freedom Run. I got Lila up also and we headed down to Provo. I had a great time running the 5k. My adorable niece also ran with a couple of my sisters and my brother-in-law. The temperature was really nice and I thought it was a great way to start off the holiday.

After the 5k I watched the parade with my family and then headed home to get some rest.

In the evening we headed back to Provo to watch the fireworks. Good times! Lila and Bright really loved them. 

Happy 4th!
