Draper Idol.

Every year at this time in July, our little city of Draper has a big celebration called "Draper Days."  There are tons of activities throughout the week: a Rodeo, neighborhood parties at different parks with food and entertainment, a big parade ... The biggest park is set up with vendors, games, rides, food and fun for Friday and Saturday with big stage entertainment and a huge fireworks show on Saturday night.

They also hold an annual "Draper Idol" which took place last night and three of my girls sang at that.  May I just say that this generation of youth can sometimes blow my mind with the talent?  At one point, while a previous winner was singing, I said to McCall, "I should get pictures of him because I bet he'll be famous one day." I thought the same thing about last year's winner, Ellee Duke ... she is a star.

It is always entertaining to go, especially when I am partial to certain performers!  ;)  We (I can say we since it's a family affair, right?) brought home one award, but if I had been on the judges panel it would have been a three way tie for first place ... 

Good times kiddos!


  1. Who got second?!?! This generation has SO much talent! I don't think we give them enough credit. We chalk them up there as crazy kids who don't care or listen. Amazing abilities out there waiting to be heard and used in some way or another! Wish we had something like that here to go to.

  2. WAY TO GO GIRLS...AND TO CHLOE FOR THAT TROPHY! That is so fun!!! I Love it! Tell them I want to hear their songs again on Monday!!!
    See you soon!!! :)

  3. Loved it! I especially like Chloe's singing pic. Ha. Can't wait for her to perform tonight! I hope I don't miss it! Stupid work....
