Pioneer day

July is usually so packed with activities and things going on. Its just so busy, but i love it!

Growing up in Az we didn't celebrate Pioneer day. So for me, its another excuse to celebrate amongst friends and family. This year we took Walker and Lilly to the Spanish Fork rodeo. They loved it! Walker couldn't wait for the bulls! But he loved the Bunking broncos as well. Lilly had a bit of a difficult time,being so tired from playing all day (and cutting her cousins hair is exhausting!) So she whined A LOT! We had snow cones to cool us off and some good company! Overall we had a really good time. Both the kids fell asleep in the car within 2 minutes .


Jewel and I took all the kids down to Spanish Fork days and did the whole carnival thing. We all had our choice of the carnival food that was there. Each kid got to choose a ride of their choice as long as they were tall enough or with an adult. So I am officially OLD! There was no way I was going to get myself on ANY of those Carny rides! The girls chose a motorcycle ride and the boys choose the water boats. We walked around the booths and then we all started to get hot. So of coarse, we had ourselves a snow cone and some what cooled off! It was a really fun day!

Later that night we had a BBQ with friends.Unfortunately, the wind got out of control and had a mind all its own. So the party got moved inside the house. I love having a holiday as an excuse to be with good friends! We still had a good time despite the wind. Later we all went across the street to the Shearer's house to do smores. The wind was still bad, but that didn't stop us. I think everyone had a good time and a good Pioneer Day. We're so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives!
