Freedom

What a fabulous thing to celebrate!


We woke up early on the forth to enjoy the hot air balloons for the second year in a row. I get as excited as a little kid to see them. Tiffanie and Zak joined us this year and we rode our bikes over there at 6am to be there for the balloon launch. I'm pretty sure Tiffanie initially was thinking that there was no reason good enough to get up that early on a holiday, but it grew on her when she got to see a giant pig hot air balloon up close and personal.



The rest of the day was spent relaxing (sleeping) watching movies, swimming, and enjoying the company of good friends, good food, games and the one year anniversary of our $2 wiffle ball set while awaiting the fireworks.

During the fireworks our friend Emily started singing the words to America the Beautiful. I joined in and starting singing along. The meaning to this whole event really hit home. To just really think about those words... O beautiful for spacious skies... America! America! God shed his grace on thee

My, my, my, if it isn't twig girl! How the heck are you? How on earth did you find me? Things look like they're good in your little neck of the woods. I'm just dandy. I'm in the Primary Presidency in my ward if you can believe that!

I LOVE hot air balloons. I seem to remember you inspiring me to find an event last year too, but I had missed them all. I will just have to try again!

That would have been so cool to go and see. I am sorry I did not call you when we were there. Things were so busy. It seemed like everyday was filled with some sort of event. I hope you are doing well. It is GREAT to see your blog and all the cool things you are doing in your life. Take care.
