after the reception we chaperoned a multi-stake youth dance at the cannery. we even got asked which stake we were from when we got there…until we explained that we were there to chaperone (and the person at the table asked to see my left ring finger!). we manned the sno-cone table (cherry or grape?) and by the end we were pros and could even do half and half (half cherry, half grape) without a second thought! it was fun to be with the youth and we even managed to squeeze in a couple of dances (the rest of the time i danced at the sno-cone table and dave pretended he didn’t know me:)

i thought this quote from the navy seal creed on his monument was really powerful and descriptive of america's attitude and feelings
we also spent some time with our families. we had breakfast with dave's parents and later went to my parent's annual ward bbq. myles loved the water slide and i had to take a picture of one of the twins (i am embarassed to say that i don't know if it is carter or cade...oops)
that night we went to see colorado's pro soccer team, the colorado rapids, with mindy, cole, lincoln and payton. we had a great time and the rapids beat the new york red bulls 4-0. the kids did great even though it was way past their bed time, although they didn't quite make it through the fireworks show. a band played after the game and the fireworks were AMAZING and went of forever. it's the largest show in the state and we loved it.
we got ready at my parent's house and the mullet was a big hit with all the kids...can you blame them?!
we look hot! especially dave and his mullet. please note the ghostbusters t-shirt and thundercats belt buckle. plus the killer jean jacket from savers.
please note my crimped hair. my mom found the crimping iron in the bathroom. it is the same one my sisters and i used growing up. still works! lexi loved it so much she crimped her hair for the 4th!

watch that grandma shake her hips!!
and she wasn't the only one getting in on the action...
i know this video isn't turned the right way, but i can't figure out how to turn it. oh well, myles is hilarious. he moves his hands more than his hips!
that night we headed to a bbq for a little get together with some of my friends from high school at the archer's since andy was home for a few weeks from iraq and doug and dana were in town from tucson. of course i left my camera in my purse and didn't remember it until we were leaving, resulting in a picture-less post. it was great to see everyone and i feel so grateful for the wonderful friends i have been blessed with.
i have decided that every week should be a 3 1/2 day work week. it is totally doable!

i picked lex up after work and here is how the evening went:
we dropped by and picked up dave, some dinner at quiznos and headed to a park for a picnic
dinner was followed by a competitive game of putt-putt golf. we were tied up for most of the game, but lexi managed to pull out the win in the end, barely beating dave and i :)
then we headed home for movie night complete with plenty of junk food (dave eventually had to confiscate the candy after he saw a pile of wrappers next to lexi and her cheeks stuffed full of starbursts like a squirrel…a girl after my own heart…i can never get enough candy). we watched “high school musical 2” and lex knew the words to all the songs and even some of the dances. she is the cutest!! we had so much fun with her!!
