Independence Day

A brief summary of my Independence Day:

The Brentwood Ward sponsored an Independence Day breakfast at the park. Who thought of breakfast anyway? We had fun, though. Grandma and grandpa great visited and grandpa told me about one of his first jobs ever at age 17; he worked in a gold mine in southern Utah for $2 a day. He paid 90 cents a day for meals and boarding, and took home $1.10 profit. He worked several years in the gold mine.

Melkenu called; presumably up to mischief.

We took the kids down to Gonzaga University to watch the fireworks. We had a wonderful time. While we waited, the kids sat in the middle of a blanket and I pulled them down the hill. We laughed and laughed and laughed. What fun!
