More blogging you say?

More blogging you say...Yes, I am addicted! My kids just say..."mom, are you putting that on the blog?" Yes I Am!!! Today was the annual Farmington Festival Days Parade. We have been going to this parade for the last 5 years and it is by far our favorite. We were residents of Farmington at one time (only for six months, but who's taking note anyway)! Not as many people as the Kaysville one and way more CANDY for the kids. I mean, come on, what's the reason you ever went to the parade as a little kid, the vintage cars? Whatever, it's all about the candy and this particular parade won't let you down. We always joke that there is so much candy, the kids are sick of picking it up by the end of the parade. And, they have the street sweeper guy (passing out otter pops), at the end of the parade to clean up all of the candy that is in the street. We love it! Call us next year and we might let you come with us!!! HAHAHA

...Our favorite parade of the year!!! (no we are not parade junkies...)



Throw some to me...to me...Hey over here...I want some candy...

After the parade we came home to fix some sprinkler heads, or at least Chris fixed them. The kids are really into earning money right now and this chunk of dirt has been on our sidewalk for the past few months so we decided to let them shovel it up to earn a little dough. I know, I know we are such awesome parents to let our kids shovel dirt for money. Don't be jealous and certainly don't tell your friends, they will all be callling us and wanting our advice and stuff...

Trying to earn a little money to buy a snow cone maker...Cheap labor I say!!!


Like mother like daughter...I was often found in the mud as a little girl...

Best $3.99 he ever spent...It's payback time kids...remember the Alamo!!!
