Saturday was the day that our Stake celebrated Pioneer Day. We had a 5k, pancake breakfast, kids parade, face painting, pioneer games (tug o war, sack races, wheelbarrow races, plain old foot races, etc...), and the fire engine that came to spray everyone down. We didn't get the kids up early enough for the 5k, and we forgot about the fire engine and left before that, but the kids Loved the races and the parade. They ran out of food before we got to it, so we had some juice and enjoyed the rest of it. I do wish we'd stayed for the fire engine though. Then our neighbor hosts a bbque and firework show every year. When I say firework show, I really mean the big stuff. It's what I remember the stadium of fire being years ago. It's fun to chat with neighbors, lay on your blanket in the grass and giggle with the kids as the fireworks explode above you. My favorite is Seth. He had absolutely no idea what we were doing, but I got him to come lay by me... after the first pause in the fireworks he clapped and said, "Yay!" Then at each pause after that, he'd do the same thing. The finally was a little too loud for him, but the rest was so cute.
Sunday morning was hard because of staying up so late though! It's hard to decide whether tired kids at church is worth it, but I do love the socializing.

After learning about Christ and the 10 lepers in Primary today and after praying for her Grandma Wilcox's broken toes and Aunt Sharon with her baby.... she threw this in her prayer, "And please bless Grandma not to be a leper anymore." Yeah, Grandma Robertson has the flu, not leprosy.
