2012 Fiesta Days Parade



On the 24th of July our family has always enjoyed watching the Fiesta Days Parade in Spanish Fork, Utah. This year, Maddy was in the parade as part of the Payson Community Theater cast of Xanadu and dressed in her 80's outfit. Below are pictures from the day, including some with Joey and his cousins Elise and Jesika.

2012 Summer Vocal Recital

Yesterday Maddy and Joey performed at the Vocal Recital for Jeanice Woodbrey Studios. Both sang two songs, the culmination of a summer's worth of study. I thought the selections they performed were perfect for each of them and really matched their ranges.

Maddy sang "Green Finch and Linnet Bird" from "Sweeney Todd," and "Meadowlark" from "The Baker's Wife." Joey sang "Empty Chairs and Empty Tables" from "Les Miserables" and "Seize the Day" from "Newsies."

Below are some pictures as well as the videos of their performances.

2012 Stadium of Fire
















After a family barbeque in Salem to celebrate the 4th, Jeni, Maddy, Joey and I headed to Provo for the annual Stadium of Fire. Billed as the largest indoor 4th of July Fireworks celbration in the US, it was a lot of fun with special guests Scotty McCreery (American Idol Season 10 winner) opening for the Beach Boys! It was a really fun night of  entertainment and music. Below are pictures from the show.
