4th of July

We had a fun 4th of July--although it was totally different than what we usually do. When I was growing up, we always did the whole pancake breakfast/parade/swimming/bbq charade--which I loved! But living in Provo in an apartment forces you to do things a little differently. My family was in town so we definitely had a much more exciting time than we would have alone! In the late morning, we hiked the Y...I'm still confused why I've done this hike four times now. It is SO hard! I thought I wasn't going to make it this time. But I did. Here's me and the sisters at the top:

We're in order of oldest to youngest. L-R: Laurin, Marci, Kelli, Jamie

After the exhausting hike, we went out to eat at Chadder's (an imitation In N Out). Although I hate to frequent those copy-cat places, I really like burgers that taste similar to In N Out's and there's no real thing here for me to eat (yet!). After Chadder's everyone took a nap for a couple hours (really, that hike was tough!).

In the late afternoon we went miniature golfing. It was so fun! Thomas won (he was like 10 under par) and I came in second place at even par!! I'm so proud...I've never done that well! After miniature golf most of the family went out to eat for dinner and Jai and I went to the grocery store to buy ice cream and toppings for banana splits. YUM. We went to watch the fireworks late at night and they actually were pretty lame. Not as good as Rancho Cordova fireworks. Oh...and it started to rain. Of course. It rains almost every day here. IT'S JULY. Utah is no good.

Happy 4th of July!!!
