We started out our 4th of July with the Primary Bike Parade! It's the second year I've been in charge of this event and it's one of my favorite things! The kids all adore it, and the actual parade is fairly easy to execute.
The kids spent hours perfecting their patriotic bike decor.
The parade is led by a police officer in our ward. He runs his lights and siren and the kids go wild for it! The entire route was about 1.25 miles.
Donuts and milk afterwards ... always a hit!
We didn't have concrete plans for the evening and were thrilled when our good friends, the Benners, invited us over for a swim and BBQ.
The kids went swimming while I prepped a salad and then we had enjoyable night and evening.
It was such a scorching hot day...it was the first time in, well forever, that we watched fireworks without jackets on.
As part of our 4th of July weekend, the day prior we hit up iFly. The kids received tickets to go on a 'flight' for Christmas and we finally found the perfect time to go.
After some training they were ready... except Miles that backed out at the last minute...darn!
He eventually changed his mind, but it was too late.
A quick video of Addison.
We really had a blast...it's such a cool experience. I would definitely do it again!
