After the events of the previous day, we were happy to start the day off by sleeping in. John was the first to wake up at 9:30. I woke up shortly thereafter. We had the house to straighten up and then it was a lazy day from then on. That evening we invited John's parents and his sister and family up to see our measly fireworks. (We're no Stadium of Fire down in Provo, but it was a lot cheaper!)
We enjoyed a meal of hot dogs, chili, salad, chips and cottage cheese with a strawberry daquiri (non-alcoholic, of course) slush. That was followed by a homemade Nutella ice cream and flag cake.
Griffin thought it looked better with a mock flagpole.
The crazy eye!
...and at least one dog who could sleep through anything.
Special thanks to my mom who sent us a list of our ancestors who served in the military. Griffin asked that very morning if we had anyone who was a captain. The information was very helpful!
