4th and Footloose!!

For 4th of July this year, Matt, his cousin/BFF Marc, and I went to the Idaho Falls firework show. It is said to be the "Best Firework Show This Side of the Mississippi", and it does NOT disappoint. We got there 2 hours early to find good seats. We ended up parking and literally sitting on the highway so we could make an easy getaway. Traffic here is NUTS after the show is over. At first we were sittin up on the hill right next to the gaurdrail, and cars were whizzin by. We decided that was a little too close, so we moved down the hill a bit. Even though there were crazies who had their baby strollers right against the guard rail!

Waitin for the show to start!

This weekend, Matt's boss, Dale bought us tickets to the Playmill to watch Footloose. He also bought extra tickets for us, so we invited our great friends, Ali and Amanda. We made the drive to West Yellowstone, Montana after Matt got out of class. I really didn't know what to expect, but the show was AMAZING. The singers were phenomenal, and their acting skills were just as good. During intermission Dale bought us the famous fudge and popcorn. He really hooked us up.


After Footloose, Dale kindly invited us to go up to their cabin on Bill's Island for dinner. Once a year, Dale invites 7 other of his friends to go skiing and have dinner at his cabin on Bill's Island. Bill's Island is home to the cabins of many celebrities like Demi Moore. They have a tradition that's been goin on for 15 years where they go skiing at midnight under the full moon. I thought it was going to be weird hanging out with a lot of people that are the parents of Matt, Amanda, and Ali's FRIENDS, but we had sooo much fun.
