July 4th - Independence Day (and Ezekiel's birthday!)
Since we lived in Zion, and just a few blocks away from a rather large park, there was always a lot of fun things to do for the Fourth of July. There would be games, pony rides, a petting zoo, and usually rock climbing...all conveniently located just down the road from where we lived. The younger ones especially enjoyed seeing the animals and getting to ride the ponies. We also got a front row seat to the fireworks display that the city put on later in the evening, because we could watch it from our rooftop!
