Days of '47 Fun

We had a fun filled all started on Wednesday night when we were able to go the Rodeo with Grandma 'Jean. My boys love the Rodeo and could not take their eyes off of it the entire time...Carson loved to go over to the where they took the calves after then were finish using them. He would stand there is just watch :) Jackson sat with Grandma and talked all about Rodeo things :) Jackson sure has a love of rodeo's just like Grandma.

The next day we picked up Aunt Kirsten from the airport and went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house with her and our cousins Emily and was super hot so we did not take many pictures. But here is a cute one of Jackson and his cousin Emily.

On Friday which is the official 24th of July we got up early and went and had breakfast with Grandma LaJean and headed over to watch the parade which was a first for me and my kids. We got front row seats and the kids had a blast. After the parade we catch up with our favorite cousins....Emily and Paige and went and saw the Kennecott Copper Mine which was also a first for all of us. It was really neat and amazing how deep they are in the earth. My boys particularly loved to watch the earth movers. We had to take a picture next to the huge tires that are on the trucks. It was amazing that the workers had to use a huge latter to get into the trucks.

After visiting the copper mine we came home so that I could start to prepare all the food for Aunt Jeana's baby shower. I hurried and whipped out a cake, brownies all before Rick came home and we decided to go and watch the fireworks at the Bee's game (even though the official game was cancelled) It was a fun night with a million people it seemed. We watch the fireworks with Uncle Brian, Aunt Amanda, Emily, Paige, Aunt Kirsten. Carson did not like them...the noise is really hard on his ears. Even though he has tubes for over a year now his ears still give him some trouble. I hope that he outgrows it at some point. So I had to lay with him and cover his ears while he watched. The fireworks lasted a long time. The boys were so tired by the end of the day, as was I...I could no longer remember what day it was. I still had to come home, go to the store and finish the things for Jeana's shower. I didn't finish until after 1 am and feeling very guilty for not exercising and having a huge amount of stress I decided that exercise was my best bet so I went to the gym and did cardio for 45 mins. I came home and fell asleep about 2:30am just to awake a 6:30am. The shower went well...After the shower I came home and went and celebrated my husband and I's 6th wedding anniversary. I am not sure what we were thinking of getting married over a holiday weekend.
I am so lucky to have such a great husband and best friend to share my crazy but fun life with. So that is my life over a short weekend...and now I just want to do nothing for awhile..but can't this weekend we are going out of town for Rick's 10 year class reunion. Crazy!!
