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.
