July 24, 2008
It has been a very eventful week. Rick and I got free tickets to the Salt Lake Bees Baseball game from my work. The game was on Tuesday night so we drove up to Salt Lake to go the the baseball game. IT was a lot of fun. They played the Oklahoma Redhawks. The Redhawks won 7-4 but that's who I was cheering for anyways since that is my home state.
Then on Wednesday night Rick and I went to the Spanish fork Rodeo together. Going to the Rodeo has been a yearly tradition since we started dating. This is the third year in a row that we have gone. We love going to the rodeo because it is as close to Oklahoma as you can get out here. They even had some riders in from Oklahoma doing cow roping and on the bucking broncos. It was fun to watch all the horses and riders preform and compete. This is one of our favorite things to do during the summer.

For the 4th of July Rick and I went to the Stadium of Fire. It was Rick's first time ever going so we were pretty excited to go. I won the tickets through my work so it was nice to get a free seat!
Here are the sky divers landing on the field. It was really neat to watch them jump out of the plane and fly down onto the field. That is one thing that I don't think I could ever do!
And of course the dancers that perform each year did an amazing job! There was about 1500 of them on the field at a time this year. They said that was the most they had ever had at one time. They did a dance that had every sport that is in the summer olympics. It was really interesting to see how they performed each sport but still did it in a dance.
And the fireworks! This is always my favorite part of the 4th of July. I love to watch them and they always do such a good job at the Stadium of Fire! Rick and I really enjoyed being a part of that this year. It was a fun way to celebrate the freedom of our country! Happy 4th of July!!!
