HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!!!!

Happy fourth of July!! We had the best day! It is Romneys family tradition to go to the University of Redlands for the 4th. We wait in line in the blazing heat and at 5pm they open the doors. It is held out on the football field. We set up camp and bring our coolers. We eat our dinner on our blankets and wait for the sun to go down. We play card games and wait some more. While we are waiting for the firework show planes fly overhead doing different things. There are skyjumpers who also put on a show. IT is so fun. The atmosphere is just great. Every year we bring more friends and they keep coming back. Happy 4th to all!!!

Here is Romneys brother Roger and his wife Lyndzee and their kids Charliee and Jett

This is Romneys sister Penny and her husband Jared with their kids Keegan and Ellie

Mom and Dad came and they thought it was pretty fun too.

Charliee was so excited to watch the airplanes and skyjumpers!

The skyjumpers are crazy. A whole buch of em jump from 10,000 feet and make there way down to where we are sitting. They land going about 20-40 MPH. It is so cool to watch them do flips in the air. The last jumper came down with the flag attached to his leg.

Here are the planes that go back and forth and do different things. It's really fun to watch and see all the kids go nuts for airplanes.

This firework show was so awesome! It went for about 30-45 mnutes. They shot off the fireworks and it went along to music. The ending finale was to the Star Spangled Banner. Everyone stood up and sang along and it was amazing. The whole sky was lit up.

What a fun fun day!
