Pioneer Days

Every year my mom's side of the family gets together for one of the most amazing weekends ever, The Fairview Pioneer Days, better known as the 24th of July. we all get together and go to the parade, Chill at Aunt Maria's, play in the ditch or pool, make fools of our selves by attempting to play sports we clearly can't play, and going to the most amazing display of crushing metal and fire ever, the demolition derby and fireworks!
I didn't get all the wonder full pictures from the parade like i normally do because i left the camera in my car. but i will just let you know that Sanpete parades aren't like some dinky Price parade where they only give out one piece of candy. in Sanpete they throw out handfuls of candy. If your smart (like us) you will sit the first block or two into the parade. See... the kids in the parade don't realize that main st. in Fairview is quite long. So they throw out all the candy at the beginning because they are so excited. The sad thing is our family is getting to old to just stand out in the middle of the street (or behind the white line) to get candy. we only have Karina, Aubree, Matthew, and Macie. Not a great candy fetching Crew like when i was little. but we are great at catching T-Shirts. (even when they get stuck on phone lines.) The best story of the parade is Courtney (my Brother) got hit in the FOREHEAD with a piece of candy. the funny thing is the candy made a welt on his forehead. i wish i would have had my camera with me because it was like an instant-a-welt. we always just hang out at my Aunt Maria's because it's the thing to do on the 24th. We all attempt to play basketball, some attempt to play soccer, and others attempt volleyball. we also get really tan from just sitting out talking in the heat.

After getting baked in the sun, we all get cleaned up and go to the DEMOLITION DERBY!!!!
This year was by far one of the best years. There was one car that went on to it's side, one completely flip, and a pretty awesome powder-puff round. By the way a Girl took 2nd over all! The Fireworks were awesome! the last 3 were amazing. they went off in a triangle, and were HUGE! they then exploded into smaller ones. you know that ones that look like they are coming at you. these are some pretty cool pictures i took.


Lamb Day

Lamb Day is one of the Funnest home town events ever. it may sound weird but they eat a lot of Lamb have a softball tournament a dance and lots of fun stuff at the park. We have a parade and this year we had the family and the Tractors in it. Lamb day is so much fun. this year was pretty eventful at Lamb day but only a few choose people get to hear about them. Here are some pics to show how much fun I had. My Sister and i on top. Heading over to Grandmas.

The Final Entry


Happy JULY!

July has been an eventful month and so much fun. I started out with an enjoyable family camping trip on the 4Th. we had fun just chilling in nature and fishing.
I wasn't able to fish cause i don't have my fishing license so i took pictures. Karina (well my dad) and kacyila caught a fish. we did the catch and release thing but the fish kacylia caught wasn't lucky enough to be released. he swallowed the hook and died.This is Karina Playing with the worms. she is so funny she didn't want to touch the fish but she would touch the worm. ha ha good ol karina.

After Camping I went to the Zoo with Mike and little miss Daisy (mikes Niece.) It was so much fun i hadn't been to the zoo for 9 years so it was time to go see all the cute little animals. Here are a few pictures that we took at the zoo. Daisy wasn't to happy with the big Gorilla. Mike Said she was shaking when he went to put her one the Gorillas Shoulder. Even being close to it she wasn't happy. It was so funny we saw the Rhino. Mike said "Daisy look how big is nose is." In response Daisy said "He's stupid." It was the most random, funny thing i have ever heard from a 2 year old.
Daisy wanted to go in the "Round and Round" so we let her go. So was a little scared at first so i told her that her animal was nice and that she need to hold on because it was going to go up and down. (I'm to short for her to hold on to when it goes up). She loved it and every time we passed Mike she would stick out her tongue and wave to him. She wasn't to happy when i took her off but yet what kid isn't happy when they have to get off a ride. while we were taking her home she asked if we could go to the zoo like we hadn't been yet. She fell asleep and we had a nice drive back to Provo.
Monday we went to FHE and had a blast like always. We had dinner, played games around the camp fire and had S-mores. It was really fun. Oh and who can forget about watermelon faces.
