Pioneer Day Celebration

Our neighborhood rocks. It seriously is so fun ... we had the annual Pioneer Day parade and bbq a couple of weekends ago. Sophie and Collin had been looking forward to it for weeks ... it did not disappoint. We actually considered going out of town this weekend but knew that Sophie would have been so sad if we missed this event. It really is so much fun.

The kids spent almost the entire day prepping their bikes for the parade {washing and decorating}. And the parade this year ... was complete with a police escort and the Davis high drumline band. Our kids tend to be whiny bike riders and complain and say they can't do it for most of every ride we ever go on, but not this parade. It gives them so much motivation and they were right up at the front pedaling away. And ruby loved riding in the trailer.

The bbq is equally great! Good food, lots of great company, a fish pond, face painting, a candy cannon, cotton candy, and a giant water slide. What more could you need?!?! Collin and ruby loved just playing at the park and Sophie loved the water slide. It took her awhile to get into it but once she did she was having a blast. She went home in tears because it had to be put away. She even told Logan "This is the worst July ever!" She was so sad. Maybe we should get her a slip and slide ... but it's not quite the same.

Here is Sophie enjoying the water slide ... just look at that smile at the end. Love it!

Such a fun night!
