Independence Day

We enjoyed a delicious pancake breakfast up at Brighton to kick-off our Independence Day celebration. Well actually, we enjoyed sleeping in. THEN, we got out of bed and made it up to Brighton by 10:30 to enjoy breakfast in the mountains.
Nicholas: "Hey! They have Lincoln Logs!"

After hiking around a bit, we drove over Guardsman Pass into Park City and rode the Alpine Coaster--similar to the Alpine slide but better!

That night we skipped the usual tradition of Sugarhouse Park fireworks and glowsticks and stayed closer to home to watch the fireworks right in Holladay City. I missed being with my family, but it was fun to celebrate with our community and friends.

We also missed Courtney who was in Santa Cruz hanging out with Ruby. Nicholas said she was missing out on all the fun. I'm pretty sure hanging out with one of your best friends on the beach and in San Francisco was a pretty even match with the Alpine Coaster. Not sure Nicholas would agree!

my company picnic was there last month, and we went. everything was free (hence the 4000+attendees--we utahns know a good deal!), but the line for the alpine coaster was like 3 hours and we didn't have time to do it before it closed. but the alpine slide x2, zip line, and the other bungee/climbing rides were fun. glad you liked it...maybe we'll go back up for an evening sometime! ♥
