4th of July

We decided to really celebrate Independence Day this year. As soon as I heard that Carrie Underwood was coming for Stadium of Fire I called siblings and mom to see if anyone wanted to go. Cindy and John decided to take a month vacation from Texas and drive to Yosemite, then to Mom and Dad's for a few weeks and then to Utah for a few weeks. Mom and Dad decided to come too.

We started the weekend with a BBQ at Elliot and Katie's house on Friday. I decided to make corn-on-the-cob cupcakes for dessert.

On Saturday we had a BBQ at the Buells and played games before we headed to the Stadium of Fire.

Summer and Steve set-up the Badminton set and everyone was having a difficult time keeping the birdie off the roof. I was designated as the one to retrieve the birdie.

After the picnic the kiddos decided they needed to cool off. So, off went their clothes and in they went to the pool.

Brooke decided she wanted to join - but didn't want to bother with removing her clothes :)

I loved the Stadium of Fire. Bryan and I have wanted to go for years but have never liked who was coming. I was thrilled to hear Carrie Underwood. She was amazing. Both Cindy and mom got teary eyed while listening to Carrie. I hope we love the act next year so we can go again!
