Yankee Doodle Dandy

We celebrated the 4th of July in Park City with the Felt Family reunion. Kathleen Felt Covey is the daughter of Paul and Afton Felt, who are the parents of 12 children. When Paul asked Afton to marry him, he asked her if she was willing to have 12 children. Grandma Felt said yes, but she honestly thought Grandpa Felt would forget about it. 12 children and over 65 years later, their posterity is gathering together every year. We played tennis, went to movies, hung out at the pool, watched fireworks in the plaza, lit up sparklers with the cousins and picnicked in the park. Johnny and Katie were the star emcees of the annual talent show. The ultimate compliment to Johnny's act was that I overheard some cousins using his magic show tune when they were trying to do some magic show tricks. You'll have to request to see the magic show sometime.

Here are most of the cousins waving the stars and the stripes around.

Here is Johnny boy showing off his talent and his patriotic flare.

Here is a close up of some of the cutest Felt cousins (I just call it like I see it).
