We had a great time the whole weekend of the 4th of July with Shawn's family. Everyone was in town from Vegas and Cali! We started it off with going to the Stadium of Fire! I haven't been since I was in it and that was in High School. I was one of those cute, patriotic dancers. :) Anyway, Barbara and Larry bought us all tickets and we were excited to go. Right off, the parachuters come down into the stadium. The one wearing the flag actually crash-landed, so that was pretty exciting. No one looked hurt. :) Then, there were some patriotic songs and performances. After that, David Archuleta performed. My cute teeny-bopper nieces were totally singing every word to his songs. It was great! His songs are good and his voice is good but he's just too sweet to be a good performer. Does that make sense? The main event was Brad Paisley. Unfortunately I didn't know a word to any of his songs. I'm really not into country but I thought I might know maybe a song or two. Nope. So it was a little boring for me. He is a REALLY good guitar player and my nephew was freaking out about that. It was pretty funny. The fireworks show is where it's at! The loud booms and fireworks are just amazing! The traffic was also pretty amazing in a bad way. We didn't get home until 12:30...1 1/2 hours. My sister babysat Sadie and I was felt bad we got home so late.
|It was HOT! That's my motto this summer. But at least our seats were in the shade.|
|I was one of those dancers o so long ago!|
|There's little David Archuleta.|
|I didn't have my good camera but this was a pretty fun one of the fireworks show.|
|Victoria and Sadie...both very astonished and amazed.|
|Shawn apparently needed a chair. Any chair.|
