how we celebrated the fourth

This year our fourth of July was very eventful! We started the day off with a little run and when we got back I was exhausted because I am clearly out of shape, so when we got back I was just relaxin' on my bed when Alex pranced in with his computer and plugged in right into the TV for me. He turned bachy on for me, he then continued to make me a lovely breakfast. (I was feeling very spoiled by this point) 

We then went to the lake with some of my cousins where we tubed, talked, and went on a crazy ride.

Then we went to watch my sister Macey play in her soccer game.
 Followed by a BBQ with all the Gates family, and of course sparklers.
 We watched the beautiful St. George fireworks from our own backyard, and this was the only picture I got of them, to bad they look like little ghosts instead of fireworks.
