4th of July!

For the 4th of July, Tommy and I went up to Bryce Canyon with our new friends Andy and Ashley. Ashley's dad built this awesome cabin on the top of a hill that had an amazing view. We had such a fun and relaxing time and it was really great to get away from all the heat down in the valley.


Here is the front side of the Cabin.


Here are Andy and Ashley on the balcony. They are such fun we just love hanging out with them. It's so great to finally have married friends.
On Saturday, we went into Knab, UT to do a little shopping and watch the fireworks that night. We first went to the local community park where most of the people in town were hanging out and waiting, eating and playing. It rained off and on but the result we these beautiful raindrops on the flowers. Plus, we all know how much I love daises.




There was also a great windmill right in the middle of the park. It was raining when I took this picture but there was a cloud burst right then. I loved it so much I decided I needed to share it with you.

After we left the park we walked around Knab for a while. We wanted to do a little shopping but most of the good stores were closed because of the holiday. We ended up going into a few tourist shops along with a western movie set museum. It was pretty cool and full of old movie sets and buildings.






At the end of the night, we went back to the park to watch the fireworks. They put on a great show and we had a great time.



Thank you Andy and Ashley for the great trip!!
