4th of July 2011 part 2

In the early afternoon we get together at my mom and dad's place to play and eat.



We put up a big black tarp down the hill in the back yard and sprayed water on it for a huge slip and slide. All the kids decided to go down at the same time.






dad broke some ribs going down on his stomach head first.





even Aunt Melissa went down in her clothes!

4th of July 2011






















ahhhh..... memories. It really is an amazing site to see so many balloons in one park.



This was a second annual visit to the Provo Freedom Festival Balloon Launch. We wake up at 6am and be down in Provo by 7 to watch dozens of hot air balloons fill the morning sky. It really is quite the show. We then go out to breakfast and we are back home in bed by 9. :)










Darth was there with his balloon so I had to get a pic.








Orthotic


So our dentist recommended that we get started with working on Anson's teeth. His back 2 teeth sit side ways so we needed to straighten them out. So.....we found a great Orthodontist and got this lovely piece of gear installed. I have a key that goes in a whole and I turn it 3x a week. He will probably have it for about 9 months. Anson thinks it's cool and is very aware of what he can and can't eat. Yeah for dental work!!

Lehi Miniture Float Parade

Our ward makes a float every year for the last week of June for the Lehi Round Up week. For the past couple of years we have placed very high in the judging. We have taken first place, Sweepstakes and this year, 2nd. The theme was "Remember your first taste of ..." and we chose freedom. We made out of paper mache a VW bug, hippy style that was broken down and falling apart. We even had it smoking out the back.


this tree was my favorite. It was sooo cute.

These floats usually take every sat. plus more toward the end for about 2 months.


It's alot of hard work and time but we were very proud of our little car. My kids also walked in the parade with Aaron and I.
