God's Fireworks

There were many fireworks going off in the valley last night. God's were by far the best though. I love the lightening and spent a time outside trying to get pics of it. I didn't get any good shots, but the time outside with the wind and lightening was great.

I always feel like a horse in storms. Or rather how horses acts in storms. I feel like running around and being crazy. There's an energy to them that I love.

Floats, floats, and more floats

Dillon took me to see the 24th of July floats after work. When we got there, they handed us a ballot to vote for our favorite, so I was on the lookout for the best one.

Some floats were a little more creative than others. I think this is Lynne's stake's float. Hee hee.

Is this chic sleeping on the job?!?!

This guy was really proud of his light house. He told me that the dolphin and the whale spit water. That would be fun to see.

I got to the point that I didn't really care if people's heads were in my shot. Especially when shooting the floats I wasn't terribly moved by.

This one was all about Utah inventions. Idaho gets pretty pissed about Philo. Utah claims that invention even though he was from Idaho.
She loves her job! Idaho claims this one too.

Does this guy look like a good Brigham Young? Well I thought so. He's actually a great grandson of his.

I took the most pics of the ones I liked best. I ended up voting for number 6 - the Visions of Liberty float. It was super neat, I thought.
