Children's Parade and Festival

Last Saturday our Stake was invited to take part in the Children's Parade in Downtown Salt Lake City. We had to be there at 9:00 and I thought that was when the parade started. We had to park at 250 East and then walk up to 600 East. I was pulling Landon and Emma in the wagon and Dave carried Reagan in the kid backpack. The parade didn't actually start until 10:00 and our Stake was the last group. We didn't start going until aroung 11:00. During the actual parade Dave pulled the wagon and carried Reagan. That left me free to take some pictures. We got to walk in the parade also. So here are a couple of pictures before the parade.

Here is a picture of them riding in the wagon during the parade.
After the parade they had popcicles and then they had a festival. At the festival they had a bunch of bounce slides and bounce houses. The kids had a blast. They really enjoyed going down all the slides and jumping in the houses. This is a picture of them in the SpongeBob bounce house.
Here are Dave and the Kids after the parade and before the Bounce houses.
I guess the parade will be aired on July 24th on Channel 5 so you can look for us. The day ended with us eating at Chick-fil-A and running errands. It was a fun day!!!

Our Getaway and a Getting to Know you Again

"Weekends are a lot like rainbows, they look good from a distance but dissapear when you get up close to them."--John Shirley

This last weekend Dave and I were able to go on a little weekend getaway without the kids. Dave works with a plumber at Home Depot and he has a cabin in Kamas. We were able to go there for the weekend. It was so nice to get away from it all and just relax. Friday night we went into Park City. We went to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Company and got a Caramel Apple then we went to a restaurant. We looked at a menu before we sat down. When they seated us we got another menu. We then realized that we must have been looking at the lunch menu before as the prices were double. So we left and ended up going to Nacho Mama's. It was good. We also went and bought some groceries for the next day.

Saturday we hung out at the cabin all day long. I watched LOST on DVD and finished the first season. Now I am patiently waiting for season 2. That night we went to Heber and went to Dairy Keen for Dinner. On Sunday we woke up and packed up. We were going to go to church at noon and just do Sacrament Meeting but when we got to the chuch we found out that Sacrament Meeting was last and so we just came home. We did read a conference talk to get in some religion. Even though it was good to have a break from the kids it was good to see them again. We got to my parents house before they got home from church and we were there when they came home. It was a nice break! Thanks Mom and Dad for watching the kids.

Tell us one of your most embarrasing moments: ok. So back when I was single I was going to a Singles ward. For one of our Family Home Evenings we went to Cascade Springs. I was riding in the front seat of Dave Richardson's car. My friend from Australia, Tennille was in the Back Seat and another guy was back there also. Dave was driving like a maniac. We made it up to the springs and we walked around. On the way back down, he didn't do much better. We had to pull over a couple of times so I could throw up. However, the third time I did not make it out of his car and I threw up. It was so embarrassing.

Sorry for the long blog entry but hopefully you learned something new about me!
