Party Weekend in Bullet Format


  • Firework party at our house. The one time a year we actually are un-lazy enough to host anything. Just can't beat that kind of city sponsored entertainment. Fortunately I was the only one to see the ashes on the cookie plates once I took them inside. Good thing everyone has really tough intestines.

  • Fire station tour and children's fair. Skipped out on the children's parade but still scored the treats and free carnival tix.

  • BYU football game with my daddio. Further proof that I am his favorite. Too bad he didn't love me enough to upgrade his tix to the shady side of the stadium. Sweating next to 64,000 of my fellow fans is just part of the experience though and I ain't complaining (anymore).
  • Sunday stuff. We have had the kids sit in a specific order on the pew for the last few weeks with Noelle being the 'floater' (meaning she pretty much sits on everybody and everywhere at some point during SM). This has worked wonders and we've been getting a lot more out of this meeting than we have in several years.
  • Rainy parade and games with cousins. I obviously was very neglectful w/ the camera this weekend, but several other bloggy friends have posted pix of the downpour. Ike didn't want to give up any candy just because he was soaking wet, but it was way too cold to stay.
  • Ethan's first day of preschool. He is so not like his older brothers who required much hand-holding/shoving to get into their preschool room. In fact, he didn't even want me to take him because he was so excited to carpool and go in his friend Wyatt's car.
  • That was that. It's always fun to have extra family in town and we look forward to the next holiday weekend so it can happen again!

sounds like we all had similar fun this weekend! Ethan is one of THE cutest preschoolers I've seen. Glad he went willingly, he'll have a blast (even if he isn't with me)! : )

you are QUICK - I haven't even gotten M's first day pix off of the camera...

I will assume that the ash was all over the cookies I didn't eat... or maybe H's trampoline induced illness was actually ash induced? Either way - she is over it now and need never know!

That is exciting family news. It is the last summer holiday. That reason alone should give it more celebration!

Good for Ethan! Good for you for knowing which order to put your kids in on Sundays too. We appreciated you letting us come over and watch fireworks at your house. Ash kept landing in my hair but then Dan wanted to watch Bambi so I stayed ash free the rest of the time.

What a great yard to have a party in. And how 'bout that basement? It's ready for a lego-mania party or something!
