Happy 4th of July!

I've decided that the 4th is probably our second favorite holiday behind Christmas.  We definitely do more to celebrate it than any other holiday.

Last night we had a great time at the Stadium of Fire.  For sure my favorite part was Carrie Underwood singing the national anthem with a perfectly timed flyover at the end.  The kids did pretty good, considering all of the adults were pretty restless.  Maggie did a great job braving the fireworks from the stands.  The flyover caught Amos off guard and he never really recovered, but he enjoyed the show from underneath the stands with Pop. 

I only took a few pictures with my phone, so here it goes...

Pop, Amos, and Nan:

Maggie and Dada:

Maggie was a clapping machine.  She loved all of it.  My second favorite part of the night was watching Maggie eat a huge hot dog, while drinking a huge coke, while Carrie Underwood sang "American Girl."  Maggie is definitely our American girl:

There is something really cool about being in Lavell Edwards Stadium as the sun sets behind the mountains:

The best part is, we're far from done. Right now, Eric and Nan are in Provo staking out our spots for the parade tomorrow morning =)
