Flashback Friday 19

Since we are coming up on the 4th of July, I thought I would do a 4th of July flashback. This was in in 2004. I was home in Santa Barbara for the summer. Our ward always has the pancake breakfast. I think everyone does that right? Maybe not. Anyway... my good friends that I grew up with, Katie & Holly and I all dressed up for the breakfast... and they had little hats on display, so we got a picture.

Later we had our own fireworks at home. I spelled out my name with sparklers. I have always loved sparklers. I think its because it reminds me of when I was a kid at Grandma's house.

Last, we always go to the beach to watch the fireworks. Can I tell you how much I miss that? I love going to the beach and laying back on the sand as I watch the fireworks go off over the ocean. It was a simple day, but I love being with family and friends celebrating Independence day. Its a great holiday.

Ok, I was IN Goleta/SB and I didn't go see the fireworks. How lame am I?
Side note: our ward here in Gilbert does NOT do a pancake breakfast, and I don't know of any that do around here. Everyone leaves town for the 4th, as far as I can tell.
