Parade




The kids and I participated in the 24th of July parade. This is my sister Hanna and another little primary girl pulling the handcart that Hunter, Maddie, Emily and cousin Carlaya were riding in.




Although the parade wasn't very long I ended up carrying all 3 of my children before it was over. Despite this HORRIBLE picture that makes me look like I'm 4 months pregnant. Which I'm NOT!!!! It really made me think of those that walked the plains. All those moms that had to carry their children along the way. I am so thankful for their sacrafice.



After the parade we all went to the park for fun and games.Hunter participated in the race. I was impressed with how fast he could run. Every participant recieved a quarter. Him getting a quarter was the highlight. I was very impressed with this celebration. They had cold soda, frozen capri suns, snowcones and bottled water all for $.25. I walked away spending $2.00 on 4 children. It was great.

cute pictures. I had totally forgot that it was Pioneer Day while Carlaya was up there. I think that was her 1st. I am glad she was able to do all those fun things..... Thanks for helping with her so much that week.
