|Princess is in the back of this cool truck!|
|Enjoying the parade.|
It was a chilly morning, just before 9:00, so we bundled up in our blankets and jackets. Bossy was totally prepared as always, but when she passed out the Otter Pops, I didn't think she would get any takers.
I was wrong.
|Sport and Owen, NOT enjoying the parade...|
But I digress...
|Getting your award, Scout|
|Princess in the green|
My sweetie and I dropped off the kids and drove straight to Sam's. We are celebrating Teach's birthday tomorrow and we were lacking a few things. Most of our money was spent on disposable dinnerware so that we can reduce the number of dishes we have to wash by hand. I'll fill you in on our disaster tomorrow, but suffice to say that the flood included both dishwashers so we are now waiting on an insurance claim and washing everything by hand.
|the rain rain rain came down down down...|
Unfortunately, that's not what happened. By the time we drove the mile and a half to the park, it was pouring down and cars were starting to leave. We grabbed a close parking spot and decided to wait it out. Fajita and Crafty were working in the Youth City Council booth and they were totally soaked. It was only a few minutes in when they decided to start closing down the booths.
Thirty minutes later while the rain still pounded down, we left the park and headed home. There was a good 6 inches of standing water on the road and the kids enjoyed splashing through the puddles although they were pretty upset to lose an evening of fun and fireworks.
|A fun movie party|
I popped a big bowl of popcorn while Princess cut up a watermelon. Drama Queen had the younger kids bring down blankets and pillows so they could sack out on the floor just like they would have at a concert. The evening turned out to be a hit and we only had a couple of them fall asleep on the floor.
I wonder what Wynona thinks of Utah?
