We went to Provo for the hot air balloons. The weather was bad so they didn’t launch, but we got to see this balloon fill with hot air. It reminded me of Washington, DC.
I shot BB guns with my kids to declare our independence, then watched Airwolf on Netflix. The baddest helicopter ever. Our neighbor killed a rattlesnake, so my second daughter wanted to keep a section and skin it. She was the only one who would touch the dead snake. I used my wicked awesome ESEE 4 knife to skin it, then we salted the skin to dry it out.
We had a neighborhood BBQ and fireworks display, showcasing the newly legalized aerial fireworks. Utah County looked like it was under attack. God bless America!
