American Idol Concert!

We went to the American Idol Concert. We had a great time. Jessie was the one behind this and got the tickets. Scott and Jason were not that excited. Being the good sports that they are they came with us. We went to dinner at Olive Garden, then to the concert. It was a blast. Lynette, Dave and Hailey came with us.

Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth to everyone and God Bless the USA! We are celebrating the fourth with our family in the back yard a swim party , BBQ, and the Stadium of Fire with Miley Cyrus! I don't really love the Stadium of Fire. But we thought it would be fun this year. Jessie and Rylie are very excited about going. We usually have a BBQ with our old neighbor and do a cul-da-sac of fire. We are really going to miss that, it is a lot of fun! There is always next year.

Freedom Awards Gala.

Scott and I went to the Freedom Awards Gala tonight. We have never gone before. It was a wonderful event. I had read the book by Immcul'ee Ilibagiza "Left to Tell." She received one of the Freedom Awards. This is a life changing book that I recommend it to everyone. She has a quote in her book that I love, " When we are no longer able to change a situation-we are challended to change ourselves." This is a great book on Faith and Forgiveness. I love this book!
