A fun 4th of July Weekend!!!

So the Howards had our traditional Park City 4th of July. We had an awesome time swimming at the Peaks Hotel, watching the fireworks at the Park City Mountain Resort.

Joshua and Shelly joined us for the fireworks.

They almost didn't make it, but we were glad they did

It isn't easy taking a picture when you can't see the was too dark to see anything!

On Saturday the whole family spent a white-trash day fishing for crawdads at Strawberry Reservoir. We caught two five-gallon buckets full using balloons tied to bacon wrapped around rocks. There was lots of screaming, splashing and swimming. We killed them by twisting off their tails (it was so sad, I felt so bad) at the lake. Ooooh, they were yummy!

Trevor with a handful of the legs, eggs, and mud we cleaned off the little tails. Caviar anyone?

Brook, Trevor, Jenny, and me with the fruits (or tails) of our labor.

We were the ones that got to clean them!

That night we camped out in the backyard. The stars were so beautiful, and it wasn't too cold. It really was a perfect weekend!
