Pioneer Day and the weekend

Here in good old Utah, July 24th is a state holiday complete with 4th of July type celebrations. We started the fun bright and early at 7:30 when Jake and I ran the one mile fun run. It was his first race and he did great! He ran all but a few steps. He loved crossing the finish line and the Gatorade that was there for us. Here we are post race.
Bryan woke Kate up and ran down to meet us at the finish line.
Here is what my dad got me dressed in to go to the race. Bryan played in a three on three competition.
Kate napped while Jake watched the parade and ate candy. In the afternoon, after Bry went to work, my friend and I took the kids to the park for festivities. Here is the jump house fun.

After running around in the heat, we got snow cones and headed to play bingo. It was a little long, but Jake ended up getting a bingo and winning a snow cone maker and some yummy syrups. Then home for dinner, baths, and to bed early. Bry and I got to step outside after dark and watch fireworks from our yard. It was a long, tiring, but fun filled day. Friday was business as usual. Then Saturday we spent the morning failing miserably at yard saleing. Then we were off to the pool to cool off. Jake is getting more and more brave every time we go. This time he was going under water on his own over and over just for fun. Before long he might be swimming.

I don't like to read your blog. Everytime I do it makes me jealous. I'm not sure if we can be friends anymore.
