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.
