Flowell Pioneer Day 2013

Every year we go down to Flowell for their Pioneer Day celebration. Its not the same with out my parents there, but we still had a fun time.

The boys were in the kids parade, and I helped judge the baking contest.

Nix ate the biggest otter pop ever

and looked super darling

 The boys played on the bounce slide, and got their face painted

After dinner we got ready for the outside movie. It was Swiss Family Robinson, which I have literally seen at least 50 times. But Lance and the boys hadn't ever seen it and really liked it.

Parker's face was still painted in the morning :)

in the sandbox

Nix likes to eat the sand as much as he likes to play in it, he's lucky he is cute ;)

Summer days

My sister Suzie came to visit for the week with her cute kiddos. We dont get to see them often so it was fun to have them up to our house for the day.

Rush Valley Rodeo 2013

We left Park City and headed out to Rush Valley for the annual "Little Cheyenne" Rush Valley Rodeo.
Layton and Parker both did the goat ribbon pull and the mutton bustin.

Love my 4 cowboys

This is the cutest baby there ever was!!!

With the cousins doing some pre-ride ipod warm up :)

They both rode great, but Layton ended up winning a little money and was so excited. Parker felt pretty bad so Layton offered to give him half (which would have been $22), Parker settled on $2 though :)

Then all the kids chased the money calf :)

Its always fun to go out to the rodeo, the boys are hooked :)

Park City

When we left Starvation we were headed to visit some family and float the Provo river. I was driving my Armada and pulling the boat, and Lance was on a different route driving the Semi pulling his trackhoe.

I got a "small" tire bulge on the boat trailer along the way, up in the top of the mountains with no service. I had about 70 miles to go until Heber so I just slowly limped along until 3 miles out of Heber the tire finally blew. Long story short, and buying 3 new tires later, we were back on the road.

We had used up most of our time with the tire issue and had to pick up Lance in Park City. When we got there we deicided to just stay there for the rest of the day and enjoy it. So we checked into our hotel

Went and got some dinner

Then headed up to the Park City resort.

We did the Alpine slide, alpine coaster, and the flying eagle zip line. The boys had so much fun, and loved every bit!

 Then ended with some ice cream of course.

We went back to the hotel and just swam in the pool and relaxed in the room for a bit.

All Nix can see in any bathroom is the toilet paper, it his very favorite thing to do :)

 It wasn't our original plan but I love how it worked out. Lance is at work so often, which I appreciate, but it is fun to spend some time together when we can.

Starvation Res

Lance has worked out of town Monday-Thursday for the last 2 and a half years. This week he was working in Duchsene which is right by Starvation Reservoir, so we decided to rent a cabin there for the week. The kids and I just hung out during the day, then in the evening when Lance was done with work he would come stay with us. It was a lot of fun, I wish my schedule was more flexible so we could do this kind of thing more often,

We had such a fun week with Daddy and loved the cabin. We were sad to be leaving.
