We have had quite the Pioneer Day so far! We started the day with breakfast at Kneaders where we all feasted on their delicious (and unlimited!) French Toast. When we got back it was already so hot and such a pretty day we decided to put the sprinkler under the trampoline and let the girls have fun. They loved it! Elise was having so much fun with her cousins.
We decided since we were already out there we might as well get out the slip n' slide while we were at it! None of the girls really undertand the concept of how to properly work it, but they had fun walking on it and letting the water spray them in the face. Elise did in fact slip several times on it but not in the real sense of a slip n' slide :)
Elise loves the water!! She is always fearless in it and is usually the first one to brave the water and hop in! She was out there for at least an hour just giggling and running back and forth. We all had so much fun!
In other Pioneer Day news, we were able to go to the Days of '47 Parade preview at the South Town Expo Center last week. They have many of the floats that will bei n the parade out so you can look and see. I was SO impressed with all of the floats- especially since most of them are done by various stakes in the state! I can't believe that it is someone's calling. The work they did was incredible. These are some of my favorite floats!
We thought it was much better to see the floats standing still and in an air conditioned room rather than camping over night and watching the parade out in the hot sun :) We were glad we got to go!
And lastly and unrelated, the other evening we went to spend time with my sister Natalie. The kids got into some of her dress ups and old Halloween costumes. Elise dressed up as a dinosaur and a monkey and I thought she looked too cute to not document it!
She was so excited when we put this on her. It was like she knew she was absolutely adorable!
My little monkey. How we love her!!!
