So, Happy 4th of July! It's kinda funn. I feel like only in UTAH will the STATE move a NATIONAL holiday from a Sunday to a Saturday! All the state events were held on the 3rd of July. So many people also celebrated on the 5th of July, and even a small group on the 4th. I feel like it has been a dragged out three-day celebration of fireworks. I can't wait until I get some normal sleep again. But I have realized that I am in love with this holiday for multiple reasons:
- It is summer time and warm!!!
- People out everywhere so we can talk to them all!
- Good Grub!
Yes, it is true, the best pulled pork can be found around the 4th along with tons of people out and about. ...So as good little missionaries we headed into our apartment at 9 p.m. But the unfortunate thing was IT WAS STILL LIGHT! We pretty much live in the Ritz of missionary apartments and have a small back deck that we can over see our area (on the 2nd floor!) Also, the river, where they shoot off the fireworks. So we were on our back deck looking out and planning for the next day and wondering when they were going to start shooting them off. It gets dark around 10 pm and we have to be in bed by 10:30 so we were really hoping we would get to see them, and finally they started. Much to say there were trees and street lights in the way. Not a show like "Stadium of Fire!" But still pretty sweet. I love fireworks AND we made it to bed on time. :)
