Mustang Days 2011!

Last week was the eer-anticipated Mustang Days. It's a week long celebration for the the town of Lovell that consists of community performances, a quilt show, street dance to a local band, family fun night, class reunions, a parade, and fireworks. It's a fun week with lots to do, and we usually get to see lots of friends and family we don't see often. This year, the boys and I were gone most of the week, so we missed the Follies (a community performace), but we were there for the other major events. Friday night as soon as we got back from Utah, we took the boys over to grandpa and grandma Asay's so that Christian and I could go hang out with some of Christian's friends from high school at the street dance. It was fun to catch up with some friends that we haven't talked to in a while. Saturday, we got up and went to the parade. Christian's brother, Jacob, was on the Stake church float and his other brother Michael and aunt were on their class reunion floats. They little boys got a bunch of candy and the adults even got some ice cream sandwiches. After the parade, we got had yummy lunch at Daniel and Kasi's house and got to hang out with everyone. After some much needed naps, we went back into town to have dinner with Christian's friend and his girlfriend and then headed to the lake to watch the fireworks. We had never gone before and didn't really know what to expect. We waited for almost two hours in the crazy wind, but the fireworks were really good. We will know better next time what to expect and will bring teats and blankets! It was a great weekend and we were sad to have it over!

Fun at the parade!!

BBQ at Daniel and Kasi's. Kasi's mom and dad found these raccoons in one of their trees and gave them to their daughter-in-law's mom. They were at the bbq and the boys thought they were something else...I thought they were a little creepy and gross myself (I made them change their clothes as soon as we got home!).

Waiting for the fireworks to start. It was really windy which made it kind of chilly and we only had one blanket in our car, so we all four had to share. Next year we will be more prepared!

This was a cool heart firework...you can't really tell, but it is! :)
