So there you have it. 4th of July Rexburg style. Tonight we're heading to Idaho Falls for some LEGIT fireworks... or so I hear. Apparently they're the 2nd best in the nation. (http://blog.ratestogo.com/best-4th-july-fireworks) So... I'm pretty stoked. I've never gotten good fireworks pictures, but maybe tonight that will be a false statement.
Let me know how ya'll are doing!
And... check out my (tentative) portfolio. (www.megheb.weebly.com)
Here are some shots from the evening.
Hulia's a goof.
Unfortunately it started raining 10 minutes before the movie ended, so I never got to see if the 6 foot bunny makes an appearance. Oh well...
I miss good ol' southern rain.
And don't bite my knee.
my "cake": frozen brownies with mint ice cream and smashed up oreos. apparently it says "happy birthday" in chocolate sauce. sure, tempe...
preppin' for "beer" pong... (note the diet coke)
I think I found my calling in life.
my game face is so intimidating
Note my Horkley's t-shirt... a gift from Julia. For you non-Rexburgers, Horkley's is a piece of heaven on earth. Any day you can get a 44 oz. soda for $.60 and on THIRSTY THURSDAYS it's only $.30. I've been wanting one of their shirts for a long time. Thanks, Jules!
And thanks to everyone for helping to make my birthday special!
Between my God and me
I let Him choose the colors
He worketh steadily
Ofttimes He worketh sorrow
And I, within my heart,
Forget He sees the pattern
While I see only part
The dark threads were as needful
In the Weaver's skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He had planned
Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why
I keep trying to remind myself that the "dark threads" I may be experiencing will make for a much more beautiful weaving.
"Get a notebook, a journal that will last through all time, and maybe the angels may quote from it for eternity. Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events."
