The "Grand Marshall"

My wonderful dad was given the award this year to be the Grand Marshall for the 4th of July parade in Hyrum. He was presented with his plaque and badge at the Patriotic Program on Sunday night June 28th. It was quite a trick to get him there! We had to make him believe that Courtney and Hadley were dancing for the program to get him to go. And even still he was fighting us and didn't think he really wanted to go. The program started at 7:00 and he goes to bed around 8ish to be up to go to work in the morning. Mom managed to get him to go and once he was there I would have thought that he had figured it out considering neither Courtney or Hadley were even there. Luckily, we pulled it off!! Congratulations Dad!!! I'm so proud of you!! What an honor??
