How many people get to celebrate Independance Day twice a year!

We do and have for as long as I can remember. My hometown always has their Independance Day Celebration about a week after the 4th of July. I think it orginally started because the neighboring towns are all bigger and they wanted a good turnout.

So every year we not only get to go and celebrate on the 4th of July, but we also have the "Extravaganza" to look forward to! The Extravaganza has lots of food and craft vendors, a small area with rides, the playground, music all day Saturday and Sunday, then of course the fireworks on Sunday.

So Brea and I have spent the last 2 days hanging out at the park enjoying the festivities. So I am a little bit behind on getting some posts up, but hopefully I will catch everything up Monday and Tuesday. Be sure to come and check out my posts I have some more great products to introduce everyone too!

that sounds too fun. You know I live in Utah and I am LDS we celebrate the 24th of july which is when the pioneers come into the Utah valleys. When I was growing up I lived in a very small town. The bigger town we lived my did fireworks for the 4th, but none for the 24th so a bunch of the young men in our town got together and decided to do their own fireworks. :) They pushed a bunch of old tires and a old clunker car up to the top of the hill behind town. the stood all the tires up and filled them with straw ans gasoline then when it got dark they lit them on fire, let them sit for a min and then pushed them down the hill. There was a wash at the bottom of the hill and very few jumped the wash and we never had any fire problems. At the end of the night they would roll the car too! :)
they did this for years. The cops would come and try to catch them, but they all had thier motorcycles up there and always got away. Once the Channel 5 news even came and did a little blip on it.
how funny huh?
