"Oh Yeah Oh Yeah Oh Yeah Oh Yeah"

I have been singing my own made up song "Oh Yeah" for the last few weeks and I will tell you why. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and these are my top 6 reasons.

1. The matching shirts my mom buys ALL OF US.
2. Sleeping on the street in the gutter for the parade.
3. The parade! My family sitting there heckling and encouraging EVERYONE.
4. The missionaries that get to be in the parade.
The Freedom Festival downtown :)
6. The BBQ prior to the Stadium of Fire/followed by the STADIUM OF FIRE.

Well to my dismay and lack of preparation I didn't get stadium of fire tickets even though I was sitting there on line for hours. I had no idea Mylie would be the cause of much of my heartache.

Day by day I began to notice Enormous posters advertising the Stadium of Fire to taunt me and every time I saw one. I would whimper. SO MY ADORABLE AND THOUGHTFUL husband got to work and secretly tried to find a way to get us tickets. WELL "OH YEAH" he came through and not only do we have tickets BUT we are going to be IN THE SHOW!!! "OH YEAH" " OH YEAH" I am not exactly sure what we will be doing but we have a bunch of rehearsals I can't wait. And now you know why I have been singing "OH YEAH"

The stadium of fire is my favorite! Remember when I danced in it for a few years? funny!!! I miss you! Remember that summer that we were inseparable and we cried when we both went on vacations? Also funny. I know this post is randon, but I just miss you and love you.

Ashley!! How are you? I hope all is well with you and Chris. Looks like you guys are so happy! Brandon and I love being married and love living in Florida. But we are also going to the stadium of fire! woo woo can't wait to see hannah in action! :) haha my dad's company (MonaVie) is one of the main sponsors so we're going. Can't wait to see you perform! It should be lots of fun. Brandon wanted me to tell Chris hello. You guys have inspired us to look for bikes- so cute that you ride them everywhere. We'll see how much we can handle in the 98% humidity and 98 degree weather. :)
