And im proud to be an American..

Every year on the fourth I always play the song " God bless the U.S.A" by Lee Greenwood and sing it at the top of my lungs, I just love the fourth! Eat all you want, have BBQ's in the sun, watch beautiful firworks, celebrate our freedom and be with people you love. Of course this was my first fourth that I did not go home to California and be with my family and watch firworks at my grandma's which made me miss them so much, but it was my first time watching fireworks with my husband! Last year we went to California and opted to go see Transformers instead of fireworks :) but I told Chase that this time I wanted to actually go and watch the fireworks. Chase and I had a wonderful Fourth of July! and I hope all of you did as well! We went downtown to St. Louis and ate lots of food, people watched, and hung out with Emily and Lane. Emily works right by the arch and her company gave us free parking and we got to go to the top of the building and watch the fireworks from outside. It was really beautiful! I feel special that we already got the hook ups down here in Missouri :) All in All it was a great night!

I love the 4th of July too. It sounds like you had a great one even though you were'nt able to be in Calif. You like like you had pefect seats for the fireworks!

I need to be better at staying on top of your blog. It looks like you had a very fun 4th of july. I love singing the same song as you every year. If you don't sing it on the 4th it just doesn't feel like the 4th. I am glad you are having such a great time in Missouri! Keep up all the fun outtings. :)

That looks like so much fun! It is hard to be away from family on holidays; but this is also a 4th that you will always remember because it was different! When we are all back in Utah we need to get together, perhaps a lagoon day like we talked about FOREVER ago :)

I could totally see you singing "God Bless the USA" at the top of your lungs, not even off key. Gosh, I wish I was with you on the forth so I could hear you sing that song Dana. You give me the chills when you sing. Love you!
