July 4 & 5

We had a pretty awesome weekend! July 4 started out bright and early... we got up at 5AM to volunteer at the Freedom Run in Provo. It's a fun run/5k/10k in Provo. We helped with runner registration and handed out prizes at the end. After breakfast and a looooong nap, we went down to Nephi to visit our new baby cousin, Sadie Jane. She was born around 4:30 AM, and she was adorable. In the evening, we drove up the hill to watch the fireworks from the Stadium of Fire.


Here we are waiting for the fireworks to start.

Fireworks!



July 5, we went to Lehi to see my cousin's daughter's baptism. It was wonderful to be there with her and to see all the family.

Later that evening, we drove to Logan to see a car show with two of our friends. The purpose of going was to win our friend Mike's dad the '68 Dodge Charger that they were giving away, since it was his dream car. Unfortunately, we didn't win, but we had a pretty okay time anyway.


The Charger that wasn't meant to be...

Peter and a Delorean. You can't see it, but the license frame says "Where we're going, we don't need roads," and the license plate says "Outatime."

That sounds like a fun weekend! Thanks for posting the pictures of the baptism we were so sad that we couldn't be there! I am glad that you guys were able to go!

Yes, thank you. We were planning on being there too, but then I had surgery. (Yes, Rachel, Wag is your Aunt Barb.)
Again, thank you for the photos.
(And I'm enjoying your blog, too.)
