24th of July!

My mom was in charge of Flowell's 24th activities, we went down to help out and join in the fun.
The primary always has a little parade were the kids dress up like pioneers. This was our 5 minute job of making a wagon for the parade, we made poor Austin pull the boys! :)

My mom got a little train of my aunt and uncles fixed up and had it for the kids to ride, my boys stayed on it ALL DAY!
There are other cars behind this, but my boys only cared about the 4wheeler and the horse!
Layton is never happier than when he is on a horse (real or pretend :)
I was mean, and made the older kids get out of the bounce house for 5 minutes to give the 2 and under kids a fighting chance at having fun, Parker loved it!
Poor Nana, this is super typical to see. My sweet Mom trying to watch 8 kids at once! We all dump on her like crazy, I will be so sad when school starts again...
I love the 24th almost as much as I love the 4th! We had a fun day in Flowell, we went to our wards "Pie"oneer party that evening. Everyone takes a pie to share and it is held in a barn with dance lessons going on. The party doesn't start until 8 pm, which is great for the heat, but not so great for bedtimes. We had fun, but made a vow not to take the boys next year!
