Emilia's first 4th of July

The 4th of July started early this year! We had to be up at 6:30 in order to make our first activity of the day: The Heber Creeper Freedom Train (which was extra fun because a huge thunderstorm kept us up during the night). We had heard about the freedom train last year, but tickets sold out too fast so this year we made sure to get tickets way in advance. The train left right at 8 and we got to the depot at 7:52, but we made it and got settled just as the train departed for Decker Bay. We relaxed and watched the scenery as fiddlers played patriotic songs.

Emilia seemed to really enjoy the train ride. We thought the slow movement of the train would make her fall asleep, but she only slept for about 15 minutes of the whole 90 minute ride. She was really interested in looking out the window.

Later that afternoon, we headed to Salt Lake to celebrate Ethan's birthday with tasty Thai food before heading to their house for cake and fireworks. Unfortunately, we got a flat tire on the way which delayed things a little. 

Jessica and I have been having fun dressing our little girls in matching outfits. They wore special outfits for the holiday.

Emilia is having fun practicing sitting and she is all smiles these days.

Family picture!

Happy 4th of July!
