HAPPY 4th Of JULY and General Good News!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!! We are finally finished with our week of Fireworks sales! I'm not sure if I've ever been happier to get a week over in my life. We did really well, we even had about 3 hours on the 4th that we had all three windows packed with people and the lines went about 20 ft out. To give you an idea of our sales Monday the 29th through Friday the 3rd we had sold about $8,000. On Saturday the 4th we sold another $8,000. It was crazy! We sold out of almost everything. I think if we would have had more product we could have made even more. We make a little under 20% of our sales to split between us and our friends we did it with. They just had their second child and with us having one on the way, the money is going to doctor bills.
Here's James looking like a regular salesman! So handsome. He had the top 2 sales. One of $320 and another of $290! It was always amazing how much some people spent.
James and I borrowed my Grandma and Grandpa Larsen's camper to have behind the booth. We had to have someone there the whole time in case people tried to steal the fireworks. We would be held financially accountable if that were to happen. So we slept there every night! I frogot to get a picture of it, but it had to be 50 ft behind the booth. Oh what fun!
We did get a little break Saturday morning, an we were able to go check out the cars at the Cache Valley Crusin'. I found my new car, let me know what you think? :) They had so many cars this year, I think it was the most I have seen in a few years. The weather was nice, and it wasn't to hot, but later that night I saw my sunburns comming and I was shocked. I got fried!
This car was amazing, I had to take a picture of the sign on the window! Of course I frogot to take a picture of what it is and what year it was. OOops.

We had a fun busy 4th, and ironically we didn't shoot of any fireworks. We just didn't have time. We hope everyone had a great time!!

The good news is that I received my diploma in the mail today, so I'm an official USU graduate.

We had our Dr. apt last Monday, and everything looks good. I am 25 weeks and, he's a growing healthy boy!

Also James has been at Midas just over a year and he is now being considered a head mechanic so he will work everyother Saturdays as the other head mechanic. I'm so proud of him and all his hard work. He absolutely deserves this little promotion!

Or, actually, are you going to the Larsen Thanksgiving? We'll be there!
