4th of July

We found out a few weeks before the 4th that Zach would be working that day at the Stadium of Fire. I ended up staying in Hurricane a little longer and then my parents drove me home the day before the 4th. I was happy to have some company while Zach had to work.
We all went to lunch together, but Zach had to take his food and run. At least we snagged a quick family pic. :)
After lunch we decided we wanted to hike to Bridal Veil Falls. The only problem was I somehow forgot that it is right next to a college town that also has a lot of families. The place was packed! I thought there must be some event or something going on, but it was just busy. We decided to ditch the idea and take a drive up the canyon. I showed my parents the Utah Valley Marathon route and then we went to Heber to get some ice cream.

This just goes to show how amazing and selfless my parents are. This 4th of July marked their 31st wedding anniversary, and they chose to share the day with me and little T-Dub. Not only are they a great example of what a marriage should be like, they are two of my closest friends.
Zach didn't have the most exciting of all days, but he did get to see Kelly Clarkson and he said they had one of the best firework shows he has ever seen. I know my mister loves fireworks, so I was happy for him that he could get some enjoyment out of working on Independence Day.
The next day, Mom and Dad drove north to look at some bikes for my dad. As luck would have it, they found the perfect one. He finally got the bike he has been dreaming of for the last decade! I am so happy for him and proud of my mom. I know she doesn't love the idea because of the safety factor, but she let him get it and I am sure it will make him happy. I can't wait to go for a ride and remember what it was like 14 years ago riding with my dad on his Harley!
