10K & Foam FUN!

Saturdays pre-pioneer festivities started early in the morning when I ran the Pioneer Classic 10 K. Afterwards, the kids enjoyed snow cones, bounce houses & face painting.

After lunch, the kids participated in Lehi's FOAM Day! They had a great time until their goggles fell off & got it in their eyes!

But they sure looked cute!

Parks & 47 Days Floats

This week we ventured out to three different parks & the 47 Days Float preview that was held at the Southtowne Expo Center!
The kids enjoyed the face painting & balloon creatures, while Becky & I were amazed at all the creative floats!
FUN times by all!

An Outdoor Weekend

We spent the entire weekend outside. Why? Because we can & we deserve it!
Alpine park is one of our favorites; the best swings, beautiful mountains, huge shade trees, tons of grass.
