Abbie and Ella performing with their team at the park. Abbie is in mid cartwheel in this one!
I have to give a shout out to Liz!! What would I do without you and your camera. Maybe one of these days I can repay you for all of the picture taking you do for me. You are the best!!! and yes if you were wondering that is my dad "grandpa dee" who got the tickets for us all so we could sit together. What a good sport!!! and mom "grandma diane" who I think attended her 2nd rodeo ever!!! woo hoo!! or should I say Yee Ha!!
Yes, we went to the rodeo too. Chad missed out on this event (he was conveniently in St. George. Once again a good time was had by all!!! Abbie loves her cowgirl hat.
Matt going on a ride with Abbie and Ella, he is such a good sport. I get a sick stomach just watching them.
Abbie, Ella, Tanner, Sydney, Richard, and Ammon on puff. See how much fun they are having!
Attending the carnival. The kids have a blast but we (the adults) just try to endure it!!! Remember its for the kids!!!!
Tanner, Sydney, Nic at the parade. Abbie waving to all the Beauty Queens coming by, I think it is soo cute, she has done this ever since she has learned to wave.
Ok so here are some more pictures of what we did in the summer. Of course you can't call your self a Spanish Forkin' if you don't participate in the festivities of Fiesta Days. I hear a lot of people my age say how its not like it used to be, but I think that is because we are "old" now so it doesn't seem as magical as it was. I do believe that the parade is not like it used to be, it seems now that it is just a walking advertisement for all the businesses around. It wouldn't be such a bad thing if they would think of entertaining the crowd instead of just walking the parade route. Anyway, my kids think it is a blast and that is why I do it. I want them to have the same or even better memories of childhood that I had, and mine were magical to me. So anyway here are some of the things we did during Fiesta Days!!!
