September Events

We went to my parents house after Labor Day to celebrate their town’s Peach Days- a week long celebration with small town festivities.  The ironic thing is that the town doesn’t even have peach orchards any more.  Regardless, the boys had so much fun participating in all the events. 

Monday: Strut Your Mutt Pet Parade

Tuesday: Talent Show

Wednesday: we went to visit family in Provo

Thursday: I don’t remember. 

Friday: Dinner and variety show at Mayor’s Park

Saturday: Town Parade, lunch and festivities and City Park, Soap Box Derby,  Horse Races, and Demolition Derby.

We also had picnics in the mountains, towed my mom’s Explorer to safety since she nearly drove it over a ledge into a mudddy stream, got lots of rain, and visited with lots of neighbors and family.  We did some sewing projects, visited lots of neighbors’ gardens to get some produce, and made lots of homemade goodies.  All in all it was a really fun time and a nice break from Vegas.

Happy 4th of July!

Red Cliffs, St. George

Sorry for the late post.  I have issues uploading pictures!

So we went to St. George to visit family for the long weekend and had quite a blast (ha ha). Mikey got to meet his girl cousins who were visiting from New Mexico and he got along pretty well with them. Last time they all were together the girl cousins wanted to trade their youngest sister for Mikey, because he was cute I think was their reasoning.

We love Duplo Blocks    Suzy and Josh

Well I won the annual hand in the bucket of ice water contest- again!! I almost missed it, but they let me join in a bit late and I held my hand in there a few minutes longer to make up for being late. Breathing techniques learned in birthing classes really helped me out=o) At least they were good for something!

Mikey and I went swimming and he really became comfortable with the water, jumping in, going under the water, and walking down the stairs to get into the pool. We had such a great time bonding together. Mike kept the baby inside so Mikey and I played outside for hours!!

  

I didn’t get a picture, but I made homemade ice cream and it was such a hit with everyone! We’ve had the ice cream maker since our wedding, but we didn’t get it out of the box until about 2 weeks ago! The nieces and nephews absolutely loved it and begged me to make more. They didn’t even let it harden up, they ate it soft serve style.

So Mikey was afraid of the fireworks so he stayed inside and watched from the window. He’s such a cute boy! He still says “me afraid of the big fireworks” but requests we go to Gamma’s so he can go swimming and watch some more fireworks!

The best view

As with any vacation it’s so much fun to get away, but oh so nice to get home and sleep in your own bed!
