Independence Day 2015

We had another small Hinton reunion that took place over the Fourth of July weekend. On Friday, everyone meet in Kaysville and spent a few hours at Boondocks. We had fun mini golfing, riding bumper boats and go-carts, playing arcade games, bowling, and playing in the jungle gym.

Will and Adele playing Air Hockey.
After we were done playing, we got some lunch and headed back up to Logan to relax for a little bit before the big firework show.
We spent most of the day Saturday outside as we had rented some fun blow-up toys to play on. The kids couldn't get enough. Will was going down fine for a bit, but then he decided he was scared and wouldn't go down unless someone was holding him. 
His favorite person to take him down was Stephanie.
The kids (and adults) had a great time and played on it for most of the day.

 The adults who played in the water enjoyed having contests such as biggest splash, most style, etc. Those who were content to sit on the sidelines and watch were the judges. No surprise, Lance wont the biggest splash. Usually he would go down when the pool at the bottom was starting to get a little too full. By the time he was done, the water was about half the level before.


In the afternoon, most of us headed up to Bear Lake to go to the Pickleville Playhouse. The grandparents were nice to stay home and watch the younger kids so the rest of us could enjoy a night out. We saw "Juanito Bandito in the One With the Monkey". It was totally my type of show and I loved every second of it. I can't rave enough about how much I enjoyed it. It definitely makes me want to go back and see another one. 

We got shakes for the ride home then went and got some dinner. While we were gone, the grandparents did some fireworks in the driveway with the kids.

On Sunday, everyone started to slowly pack up and head out as needed. We hadn't seen everyone in quite a while and it was good to catch up. We hadn't told any of Lance's siblings that we were expecting, so it was fun to surprise them with that news. Julie was the only one not able to make it, but we will get to see her shortly when she makes a trip out here.

Yay for awesome holidays and yay for family gatherings!
