The Fourth

I just have to say, isn’t the fourth of July an amazing holiday.  I must say it’s a time I get very nostalgic for my childhood hometown.

The parades.

The Stadium of Fire (if you’re really from happy valley, you’re singing the themesong right now).  I remember watching Donny Osmond hang from a helicopter singing “We’re Comin’ To America”.

The talks at the Marriot center about how lucky we are to live here and how God has blessed our country.

{Sigh}

It’s just not the same here.  I think people enjoy our country, but we’re not really PASSIONATE about it… and I’d have to say I’m one of them.  I love my country, I feel blessed to live here and so proud of our armed services….

I never really thought the Freedom Festival (which is actually AMERICA’S freedom festival, so feel free to visit) would be something I’d miss.  I don’t, however, miss marching in that 100 degree parade with 20 pounds of polyester stuck to my sweaty body :).  But I do.

What did/are you going to do?

BTW, after searching long and hard for someone on youtube to have posted the stadium of fire theme song, I did come across this blog entry about the freedom festival with a pretty amusing video at the bottom.

WAIT, here it is! Themesong starts at 13 seconds…

    JOel and I were just talking about how much we miss Provo on the 4th. Although we did see a pretty amazing fireworks display the other night.

    Went to Stadium of Fire this year. It was AMAZING and I totally agree with you. They really nail that American Pride. I loved it! Random fact: Lou Diamond Phillips hosted it…WTH?
