We spent Independence Day at Sam's parents' place in Orem.
Five of the six Ward kids were there with their families.
We were missing Staci and Kyle, who were home waiting for their first baby to arrive.
Anyway, we had a big family BBQ, played backyard games, etc.
Grandma and Grandpa Ward gave their grandkids each a new outfit.
Katie, Kristen, Julia, Gideon
Tyler had fun playing this corn hole game with his cousins, Owen and Wes.
Sarah, Sam, Julia
Brian was waiting and wishing that we would stay late
do fireworks with the family.
Lucky for him, his wish came true.
It was the highlight of the day for the boys.
Katie was scared of the fireworks and thought they were "scary and too loud."
We all climbed into bed around midnight after a day well spent.
