Happy Fourth!

 We celebrated the Fourth of July by going to visit Mark's family in Shelley for the third year in a row. We started the festivities on Saturday by driving to beautiful Driggs, ID to for the Huntsmans' "Celebrate America" event.

 It was a day long family festival including an air show, bounce houses and games for the kids, entertainment and a patriotic concert.

 The highlight of the night was hearing Glenn Beck speak followed by some of the most amazing fireworks we've ever seen. It was really a great day even though it was pretty hot.
 Mark (a huge Beck fan) declared it one of the best days of his life. Pretty much all his favorite things: WW II airplanes, visiting with an old buddy from high school, Idaho mountains, being with his older brother David, honoring veterans, celebrating this great nation and traditional family values, hearing Glenn Beck and watching the fireworks with the kids.

On Monday we went to Steven and Kathy's yearly BBQ. Lots of fun visiting with family and swimming (for those brave enough to handle the freezing water!)

We ended the night back at Grandpa's house for our own fireworks and a little target practice (we are in Idaho, after all!)
