Small Town Celebration- Part 1

In the middle of July, all the small towns around us have their celebrations! Everyone comes and goes to the celebrations! We loved going to all of them.  The first town, to start off the afternoon, had lots of bubbles and chalk for the kids to play with.  The kids were able to make some very large bubbles with some sticks and ropes.  Lucy was in absolute heaven with the bubbles. She would try to help the other kids by holding on to the sticks!

Next, came the relay races.  Each child was divided up into a group based on their age. Emmy took first in her age group and won a pop.  Ben took a close second.  Hyrum did well too.

Then came three legged races and the egg toss.

To end the afternoon, the fire truck was there to squirt everyone! My kids were pretty soaked!

Did I mention that during this Ben went around with some cousin of a friend to sale pop!  Leave it to Ben to do something like that! 

Later that night, we went to the family dance. It was so much fun! Lucy really got into it and danced her little heart out! The boys were brave and asked some girls to dance after I showed them how to.  They also were encouraged by five minutes of Wii time for every girl they asked.

Emmy had fun dancing with Brandon. Lucy didn't like it if I danced with other people.

It was such a great day and we had so much fun as a family.
