My day started out early like most of you trying to save places along the parade route, but I started out with lining up with the sea of walkers/runners at the 5k starting line. I was nervous but excited since I had never done something like this before. I marched in Timpview High School's marching band but that's not like racing! I really enjoyed doing the race, and loved seeing my family cheering me on as I passed by. I'm going to make it a tradition and beat my time that I got this year. (43 minutes)
After the parade, we went to a park and had a picnic with Marc's family which was fun. We got in a water fight and even grandma was in on the fun.
At the end of the day, we sat on the lawn in front of the temple to watch the fireworks which were awesome this year! My little Hannah and Jaidyn loved them and wanted more. I hope you all had a great 4th as well!
