We started off our day by going to a ward breakfast. We kept hearing everyone talk about the great food they were going to have and that this activity is one of the main events of the year. Well, they were right, the food was awesome. They had omelets, hash browns, bacon, eggs, and pancakes. It was REALLY good food. Someone said that the family who puts this on every year has a cooking business on the side and that they cook food for almost every ward activity. We also got to meet and chat with a some of the people in the ward and get to know them better. Then we had to go home and take a nap because we had waken up so early to go to the breakfast!
Later in the afternoon we went to a Farmer's Market to buy corn on the cob and some fruit for our dinner. We also went and bought the kids a little blow-up swimming pool because it is getting very hot here(possibly 107 degrees on Sat.) ! We had a great BBQ for ourselves and were pouting a little because we didn't have anyone to invite over. We are sure missing having the Kovich's to hang out with all the time! We had corn on the cob (very good corn!), steak, and fresh pineapple. Then we made somewhat of a strawberry shortcake for dessert.
Around 9, we headed for downtown Boise to watch the fireworks. It is the first time since 2003 that they have had fireworks here. We'd never seen the downtown area yet and after going for the show last night we are excited to go back and check out more of the downtown area. The fireworks were in a huge park and we walked a little ways and got very close to where they were setting them off. It was an excellent show with some massive fireworks that almost reached the ground and a really great finale too! Evan was a little scared at first, but by the end he was clapping and pointing at the fireworks. Jordyn wasn't scared at all and really seemed to like the fireworks. We had a great Fourth of July!
