P.I.T.H. Day in Provo

First of all, you need to be sure to check out the new Cummings' family blog Melinda started, as this title comes from a post about my little sister Trina. You can check out the blog here.

For my PITH day, I did anything but Party In the House. This Fourth of July I spent in Provo, away from my family in VA for the first time. It felt very strange not go to a Pancake Breakfast at the Church, then do a cook-out for dinner with the family, and finish off the day at Ida Lee for the spectacular Fireworks celebration there. I missed not seeing Beetlemania or the Coasters & Platters this year. More than that, I missed my fun family.

I did try to keep myself involved, though. The night previous, I slept under the stars with one of my friends, Michelle, and we woke up and made pancakes. Then, we went to the 4th of July Parade in Provo, came back to swim and cool off (UT might not be humid, but it sure gets hot), then we went to the Freedom Festival for a few hours. After that, my friend Casey invited me to make Peach Pie with him-- and that "No Fail Pie Crust" of Heather's really worked out!-- and then a large group of us went to the MTC fields to watch the fireworks from the Stadium of Fire performance. While waiting for the firework show, we had fun throwing a Frisbee around and talking. It was a great day full of fun and fireworks.

I still love the 4th Cummings style, though. There's no place like home.


  1. We missed you! I kept looking around for you to dance crazily with me at the Ida Lee Celebration.

    You were in Utah.

    That was sad.


  2. Was the Freedom Festival originally the French Festival, like the fries?
