Pioneer Day

Well, I actually got brave and took Noah to the Days of 47 Parade this year. I haven't been since I was a kid. I hate the crowds and it's usually so hot too. This year, it was a little overcast so it made it nice. We had to pay to park but only had to walk about a block to where we were sitting. We took our chairs to sit on and had a pretty good spot until some annoying Hispanic lady kept getting in front of us taking pictures...I said "excuse me" a couple of times but either she didn't speak English or pretended not to hear. We had to stand for some of the parade so we could see. President Monson was in the backseat of this old car waving and we saw him pretty close so that was really neat. They had tons of cool floats. It always amazes me how creative and neat they are. It ended up being really fun and I'm glad we went.

This was a float that was done by the Granger West Stake which is the stake I grew up in.

Newman Reunion

This year we held the Newman reunion at Kelly's new house in Wellsville, Utah. (which is basically a small town in Logan) He new house is gorgeous and huge. We all went up Friday night. We played games, volleyball, relay games and the kids did crafts with Mom and Melodie. We also went on a hike and watched a movie in their theater room. We all had a lot of fun. I wish I had taken more pictures but we were just too busy having fun and being together. The pictures aren't in order of events because I messed them up and am too lazy to fix them.

On July 4th, we went to the Huntsville parade. It was a pretty good parade for a small town. The kids got tons of candy. They were even handing out water bottles.
