Star Spangled Banner

We had a fabulous 4th of July. It all started on July 4th eve which is the night Logan has a stadium show with fireworks. Erin sang the National Anthem. This picture shows how happy she is - this is after she sang!!! We were pretty proud of her. We were so glad to have Carol and Sara come up and be with us. Marek (the hockey player) was there too. He videotaped the entire fireworks. Everytime we were laughing or something he VIDEOTAPED us. It was kind of like our own reality show this week.

The morning of the 4th all the kids went down to the Stake Center for the Scout Breakfast. Then we headed out to the Hyrum 4th of the July parade. Carol went home, she was pretty exhausted after he tour. Thanks so much for coming to see Erin sing Carol.
The parade was hilarious and YES Marek videotaped the entire parade, (zooming in on the dairy princesses I'm sure)
We then had a bar-b-que. Konrad made some great chicken. We had apple and cherry pie to give Marek an all-american holiday.
We layed around holding our stomachs for a while and then drove out to Lewiston (yeah, Lindy's hometown) to see the fireworks. This is our favorite redneck adventure in July. It was a great holiday and we can't wait until next year.


  1. I was so happy to see those pictures. I was going to add some to my blog but I'll save that for another day! It was a fantastic rendition of the U.S. national one I've heard in a long time. I was excited for Erin! And I'm soooo sorry I missed the Redneck festivities in Lewiston. I should find my mullet shots from a couple of years ago! See you in a few hours. Good times up there in Cache Valley...ALWAYS!

  2. We are so sad that we missed all of the festivities up here. We are especially sad that we missed Sara and Carol. We definately need to do stuff this summer, we are only around for about one more month!

  3. 4TH OF JULY WAS THE BEST!!! I'm glad I came down! The food was awesome, as usual, which got me excited for THANKSGIVING!! Marek really did videotape EVERYTHING he saw... I don't know who is going to want to watch that... but anyway, thanks for having me! miss you guys! see you soon!
