We decided to stay in the valley this year for the fourth instead of making our annual trip up to Heber to enjoy their amazing fireworks. Since it wasn't worth roasting in the heat we went against tradition and didn't see a single firework. This holiday just isn't the same without the magical display.
We did, however, enjoy two lovely BBQ's with both sides of the family. I was too busy playing host at the one with my family to take any pictures. I did manage to snap a few pictures of the small party we had with some of the remaining Haynes family members that didn't go up to the cabin.
How grateful we are for the freedoms we have that we take for granted everyday.
