4th of July!!!!

Happy July 4th!!!!!!

One of my favorite holidays is the 4th of July! I love the parades and all the fun that goes with it. Wearing Old Navy flag tees and the sparklers, BBQ and the fun activities that come along. living up here in Utah there are so many fun things to do around the holiday! I love the small town festivities! We went to Plain City for the Parade. It is only a few miles down the road. Aubree ( my niece was in the parade with her cheer team) The kids love getting candy that is being thrown by the parade patrons and the weather this year was beautiful!!! After the Parade we awlked around the park and did some fish wrestling!! The fire dept filled up a make shift pond and then game and fish came and filled it up with trout. The kids dove in and went fishing with their bare hands! It was sooo funny watching these kids and Nikki squealling in my ear as the fish were flying out of a few hands!!! All together My kids brought home 12 trout. I was the lucky one to dehead and gut them! Im becoming an old pro at the fish thing!!! My kids (all 3) love to go fishing!!! Then what better way then to cool off in the sprinklers until it is BBQ time!!!

weekend road trip

I am going to post some random happenings from the past couple of months! I know I have fallen way behind in blogging! Facebook has taken me over!!! Ill try to keep up!

This past weekend the kids and I went to Blackfoot Idaho for a Crawford family BBQ. We went to the lake and enjoyed meeting new friends and seeing Gran ( my mom). Saturday after the BBQ we had a big firework show! We all had such a great time!

Sunday morning we sang Happy Birthday to Bryce and then the kids and I went to Breakfast. On our way home we took a detour through Soda Springs and down through Montpelliar to Minnetonka caves. It was so spectacular! If anyone ever has a chance to go put it on your list!

The drive up there was beautiful. We had a few road hogs along the way!!! Moooove over!!

WSU cheerleading

These pictures were from our night out on Saturday. Natalie and Wayde were in a cheer clinic on Wed. to learn a cheer to perform at the Weber State basketball game. I origanally signed only Natalie up...however while checking her in I noticed Wayde having the time of his life, as Wayde only knows how, with the male cheerleaders. When I went to pull him away so they could get started one of the guys that knows Wayde, (his mom is Wayde's resourse teacher) said Wayde
would be great sign him up!!! So now I have a son who loves cheerleading!!!

Let's Go Sledding!!!!!!

First..... we need to shovel out from Christmas day!

Wayde wants more presents not pictures!)

Christmas morning! My lovely children tried to wake me up at 3am!!!! Needless to say they went back to BED! When 6am came around they tried again. They succeded, I woke up and we started our Christmas morning! We had a fabulous Christmas. It was different this year being all alone without family here. However we made it fun and we even had a nap! Later that night we went to the movies and saw "Bedtime Stories". What a great movie. When we walked out of the theater there was a blizzard!! It took us twice the time to get home going 10 miles an hr. We got home safely and had nachos for dinner.

(Naptime! They fell asleep whatching the "Christmas
Story" Wayde did not... this is him after the MESS he
made in the kitchen) That's my boy!

Our Trip On The frontrunner

We decided to take a trip to SLC and walk around the Gateway. It was me and the 5 kids! ( Bryce, Carter, Wayde, Natalie. and Hayden) They had a blast riding the front runner and taking trips to the bathroom.(wherever theres a bathroom!!) I have to say while waiting it was a little scary by the tracks! It took about 45min. from Roy to SLC.
