happy 4th!

So yesterday was the 4th of July. Yay! I had a lot of fun, more than last year. Of course I had Myles with me this year, so it was bound to be great no matter what. ;) I started the day out like I do every year by going to the Templeton parade with my family. This year there was a lot of stuff going on in the park, and the fire department was putting on a pancake breakfast, which was gooood. Mmmmm. Pancakes. So we found a shady spot and watched the parade go by for a while. It was the same as every year, fire trucks and classic cars and little kids riding by on bikes. I liked the equestrian units, its too bad there weren't more of them. I wish I could ride in a parade. I wish I rode my horses more period. But it was pretty good. After that was the classic family barbecue, complete with watermelon, corn on the cob, and mom's homemade potato salad. Oh gosh, you haven't lived until you've tried my mom's potato salad. Its so good. Let's see, then there was the watching of old kung-fu movies with my dad, and after that we went to Morro Bay and set up a bonfire so we could watch the fireworks. Blanketss, smores, sparklers, the whole bit. I love the 4th.

So what else. I don't think I've mentioned before that I've started a new vocal training program. I am trying so hard to get this one particular solo in our choir, but I don't know if my dad will ever give it to me, wether I earned it or not. See, I don't think that the other choir members will accept his decision if he decides I'm the best person to sing the solo, they'll just think that he's giving his daughter special treatment. Which he wouldn't be. I've been practicing so hard its not even funny. I sing almost every day, and I've been using this new program to help me expand my range. I think it's helping, too. So we'll see. I have a feeling he's going to ask me to sing it during practice tonight, he's asked all the other people who tried out to sing again except for me. I intend on blowing them all away. I want to do really really well, so everyone will see that I'm working really hard to improve on this. So wish me luck!

Myles wants his computer back, so I guess I'm done blogging.
