PROVO PARADE (FREEDOM FESTIVAL)
So at 7:00 AM on my day off we headed down to Provo. Let me repeat that for those that passed out from disbelief. So at 7:00 AM ON MY DAY OFF we headed down to PROVO. Two things that are not my favorite. Early mornings and Utah County. Diet Coke please. Thankfully I had two fantastic girls with me, so they protected me from the hypocrisy, the size 2's, and the oxycontin. Anyway I digress. We found ourselves a prime viewing spot of the Provo Parade. As we settled.....something caught my eye. Well a whole group of somethings.....
Yeah....Yeah.....IT was an entire line of Star Wars Characters. As an entry in the Provo Parade....Woot! I mean I am a fan do not get me wrong but..........Huh only in Utah County. Other highlights...........
I was able to control my rage and sit quietly on my hands with my mouth shut as Glenn Beck passed. I just closed my eyes and hummed hymns to keep the spirit with me........Diet Coke please!
All in all is was a fantastic Parade..........Diet Coke please
Fireworks at Sugar House Park
Honestly I look at this picture and I am again amazed at how happy I am. Like I honestly am. Sure I still have to go to work, I still stress daily about the boy I adore, I still wonder why I can not lose the "last 5 pounds", and I still worry the Chargers will not win the Super Bowl. But you know...I am super happy. I have a great family. I have great friends. The Atonement is pretty much the greatest thing ever.
We had a good sized group with us. The usual suspects minus Ginger and Matty (if I had had a forty I would have poured it on the sidewalk). Fireworks, spooning, and friends.
Spooning Fourth of July Style.
Seriously...I have great group of friends.....I am lucky.
Here is to the 24th of July!
