I’m not used to seeing Archie anymore, are you?
Official audio here! I hear a little bit country … Nice!!!
If you like it, buy it! iTunes right here folks.
This is such a talented family. I follow all of them on FB, although I admit I’m probably a big fan of Madeline, Jason’s oldest daughter. This is still one of the cutest vids. She’s got her daddy’s eyes! It’s long so even if you watch just to 1:25, there’s a pre-July 4 message for you.

And further from Friday’s thrill seeking, comes a reminder from Pocoelsy that, we really shouldn’t be surprised! So, what’s next?

Look who else went up! Dan Clark!
Here’s a picture of David with Dan, Jason and Dean from the Military Tour in 2014.
Looks like it was a successful event this weekend for the Thunderbirds!
And did you catch in the interview that David said he hiked Mount Timpanogos? That’s on my “HopeToDo” list!
Mount Timpanogos, sometimes informally referred to as Timp, is the second highest mountain in Utah‘s Wasatch Range. Timpanogos rises to an elevation of 11,752 ft (3,582 m) above sea level and is the 47th-most prominent mountain in the contiguous United States.
Mount Timpanogos is one of Utah’s most popular hiking/climbing destinations and is climbed year round. Winter climbing requires advanced mountaineering ability. In spring, undercutting of deeply drifted snow by streams creates a hazard that has proven fatal on several occasions. Climbers can fall through the undermined snow fifty feet or more into the icy stream underneath.
Although it is a 14-mile round-trip hike, with almost a mile of elevation gain, Timp’s summit is one of the most-visited in the Rocky Mountains. Hikers on the trails climb through montane forest, subalpine and alpine zones. The hike is marked by waterfalls, conifers, rocky slopes and ridges, mountain goats, and a small lake, Emerald Lake, at 10,380 feet (3,164 m).
Mountain Goats? I can almost hear a The Lonely Goatherd spontaneous chorus as I type this ☺
David loves the great outdoors, as evidenced in this great pic of David and his sisters shortly after he returned from his mission.
Oops, make that #thegrandoutdoors

Your daily chuckle
Loved this sent in by Joanie. From heraldextra.com “Inside Darnell’s Head”
My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, and one of our activities was attending the David Archuleta concert at the Scera Shell in Orem.
Don’t judge: My daughter, who is on a mission in Peru, is a huge fan and would never forgive us if we didn’t go and get some pictures. We had VIP tickets (the Daily Herald is a sponsor of the Scera Shell) so excellent seats among the 5,000-plus who showed up.
Those is attendance were constantly calling out to Archuleta — “I love you David!” and “Marry me, David!” — and that was just my wife.
Just kidding. She behaved herself pretty well.
I couldn’t help thinking that the guys in his band probably didn’t think they’d one day be jamming in Orem as Archuleta sang a Disney medley, but here they were.
Here we are indeed!!!!
Chile wins Copa American!
And David catches up on that news today!
@coffeejbean was referring to the fact that it was also a sad day, as Lionel Messi from the Argentine team retired from international football after missing in a penalty shot.
Half way to Christmas!
I was reminded of this through a barrage of tweets this week that Christmas is only 6 months away! And 2016 is half way over! Let’s focus on that first one again ~ Christmas is only 6 months away and that means a number of Christmas concerts confirmed (DAC the Halls on Nov. 25/26) with, we hope, more to come!
Loved watching the Westbury Zero Gravity that Kalei posted this weekend, and right after it came another Westbury vid on my PC today. I thought I would share one of the most fun Christmas performances. Just cuz

Nothing official planning for the week so it might be a time to sit back and plan for weekend festivities for many.
I want to thank Kalei, Joanie and David from Texas for working their butts off over the past two weeks as David performed in Utah and Arizona and kept Twitter, this site and FB buzzing and brimming, in fact, overflowing with info and fun. It takes alot of work to always be ‘on’, and it’s very much appreciated ❤
I’ll be adding more during the week, including a special Canada Day post!
