Our 4th.

Our 4th started off with a breakfast get together at Greg’s Grandma’s house with family.  And how could I show up to a 4th of July breakfast without providing fruit that looks like the American Flag? It had to be done.

 photo July42013_KaraSimmons_22_zps36e049d8.jpgWe stopped in at Cafe Rio for some fine dining and then watched one of the longest firework shows we have ever seen up along the mountain side in Park City.  I dare say it was one of the best 4th of July’s we have ever had.  Except for one little event, Lydia took a spill right as we were walking up to the barn.  So if you were wondering why there weren’t nearly as many pictures as Lydia, this is why.

And now only a year to the next 4th of July!  Boo hoo.

  1. We were in Park City too. However, we didn’t stay for the fireworks…maybe next year! Sounds fun. The girls looked darling! (I love matching!)
