july july

on our way to the Eaglewood Festival of Speed   .
Is the fourth really over already? Seems like time is flying this summer. We started our celebrations on Monday, with the Eaglewood Festival of Speed car show. Next year A might have a car to display (he just bought a Mitsubishi Galant VR4, it looks like a grandpa car but is apparently really fast?). But we'll see if it is done and if he decides it is cool enough to display next to lamborghinis, caterhams, and lotuses.

Eaglewood Fireworks.
Tuesday we attended the North Salt Lake fireworks (sort of required by my job). We played phase ten, ate barbeque pork sandwiches, and people watched. Have you watched teenagers recently? It is highly fascinating. We also got some mini donuts that were pretty spectacularly good, and the fireworks this year were awesome.

Wednesday we enjoyed a family reunion, complete with out-of-towners, home movies, and Aggie icecream cones. Grandma told the story of the crooked mouth family, we sang the old sow song, and laughed at how much all the great-grands look just like their parents. Then we headed up to Ogden for the Hot Rockin 4th demolition derby. It was outrageously hot. Seriously, I melted. The bleachers faced north and south, so we had hot sunshine up until about 9:00 pm. People watching there was pretty great, and the derby itself was highly entertaining (they had a truck heat this year!). My awesome sweet husband missed the entire grudge round standing in line to get ribbon fries (potatoes cut into spirals and then fried). They were pretty darn good, like a marriage between french fries and potato chips. After the final round we left, since we'd already seen fireworks the night before. We still got home pretty late, and then work started today bright and early today at 7:00 am. Don't you think we should all take a week off for the 4th of July? I sure do.
