Sound of Freedom...

 Have you ever heard the sound of Freedom?  I have!!  I wake up to it every 4th of July Saturday morning!!  To me it's the BEST part of the Heber/Overgaard 4th Celebration!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sound of an Anvil!!...I would like to thank the AWESOME Les Parham and his partners in crime for their time and effort in making the fireworks so amazing!!  I hope they know how much we truly appreciate them!!

This year for the 4th weekend it was our Tenney Family Reunion.  It was fun filled and crazy busy!!  My dad was the Grand Marshall in the parade so we decided to have a Family Float!  I haven't been to the parade in YEARS and it was a lot of fun to see people and to actually see that we had more than 1 float in the parade this year!!  It was AMAZING to see the amount of people that actually go to the parade!!  I might just have to go in years to come!!

 For our float we did 'Don't be a Stick in the Mud...Celebrate AZ 100th Birthday!'...we filled a trailer with muddy water and the older grand kids got in and got all muddy.

After the parade we continued the reunion at Jami's with a fun bounce house and slide and just chilaxin and visiting!

What an awesome time, you have such an amazing family; but I am sure you already know that. I am so bummed that I missed most of the parade, I didn't see your parents/your float. Wish I could've seen you, but will definately make a absolute must do next time I'm up. Love you and your family, you are all such wonderful people.

Your Dad really deserved being the Grand Marshall in the parade for all he has done for the Heber-Overgaard community all these years. So glad he got some recognition. What an awesome family and great pictures! Glad your reunion was great!
