When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

I've been meaning to place a new post here but have honestly been too tired! lol
The fourth was so much fun. Half of my family ended up inviting themselves to my house. At first, I rebelled. I had been looking forward to a quiet little holiday, but my nephew came into town who has been serving in Afghanistan and I couldn't turn them away. I love him and his little family too much. And it was the 4th of July after all. He's in the Army Special Forces on the helicopters. He hangs on the outside, onto a gun and drops and picks up the rangers and Seals from their missions. It's super dangerous and just a couple of months ago, their chopper was shot down. No was died, luckily, but it was scary. He has some harrowing stories that would give you goose bumps. He's being transferred though because he has kids and wants to live to see them grow up. They'll be stationed at Fort Lewis, in Wash. They were great fun. He's just a big kid himself!
Jared's sister, Jennifer and mom (my sister) came up and we bar-b-qued and went to the Brigham fireworks. It was so much fun! I just love family. Most of the time! lol
