WHAT’S UP Wednesday – Our upcoming VACATION!

Finished Group

(Cousin pictures in red, white, and blue…2009)

I LOVE the 4th of July!  In my home town Taylor, AZ there are all kinds of great things going on…a rodeo, the firing of the Anvil, the patriotic program, the parade, the craft shows, the country dances, the fireworks, the Navaho taco dinners…I love it all!  So when I moved to Missouri I sorta expected the 4th of July to be the same, BUT to my surprise our town only does a dinky firework show, nothing else.  The thing they make a big deal out of is our FAIR!  Yes you read that right, a fair!  They even do fireworks during the fair…seems a bit crazy to me, but everyone loves it!  So this year Ben and I decided to go to AZ for the 4th of July!  I am SO excited!  I get to enjoy the festivities, be with my family, and be reminded of the freedom I have!  We are however driving…and YES it is a very long drive!  And yes I know we will be stopping a lot because I am preggers and will have to use the little girls room often!  Wish us luck!

  1. Oh, I know EXACTLY what you are talking about! Growing up in Texas, the 4th of July and parades and fireworks were HUGE!

    When we moved to Phoenix, I was shocked that the only parade I could find was about 10 minutes long... I guess it is just too hot!
