Every year on Pioneer Day, the Bountiful City Park has carnival games and rides. This is the bungee jump/trampoline that he waited in line for TWO HOURS to do! Luckily, there were chairs nearby in the shade where we sat and waited.As always, there were a variety of pioneer games, including the log saw that Ryan and Papa did together.And carnival games such as the fish pond, bouncy shark, etc. I keep enjoying these, thinking any year may be the last he’ll want to do them. He didn’t want to ride the ponies this year. :(

Our semi-annual WGU meetings were held July 7 - 11. I always enjoy getting together with my good friends. Once again, we had a great week!
We were color-coordinated a couple of times…

On Tuesday, June 30, the Utah Cultural Celebration Center began their World Stage Concert Series with the Utah Symphony! We missed last summer’s symphony concert (we were visiting Yellowstone), so we were excited to be there this year.
As always, we had a lot of fun with Kristin & Abby.Our friends and neighbors, the Moons, were also there. We enjoyed visiting with them, too.And Ryan kept us all entertained during intermission with his popcorn throwing skills!Our Independence Day festivities began on Friday, July 3, with the North Salt Lake City carnival and fireworks at Eaglewood. We missed last year (same Yellowstone trip), but have made that a tradition every year since we moved back to Bountiful from Las Vegas. It was fun to be back. Mom & Dad were at the temple with a cousin who is going on a mission to Canada. So Ryan and I went alone. As we approached our usual spot, the Strand/Chilton clan was there! They had brought pizza, birthday cake and ice cream for Lil’ Troy’s 3rd birthday, and invited us to join them. It was fun to still be with family there! (Thanks, Teya, for taking our picture!)It was great to see Troy, Teya, Loni, and their families. It was great to see Teya's new baby, and to see Loni, another family member expecting twin girls!
Randy, always teasing, annoyed Nate by pouring water on his head. (I know, hard to see into the sun.)But, finally, after years (generations!) of Randy doing “bunny ears” to everyone in pictures…karma!We had a great time hanging out with the fam, watching the skydivers and flyovers, and doing the carnival games.Finally, on the 4th, my good little cub scout put up the flag…...We picked cherries and made a couple dozen pints of jam…...And enjoyed visiting and lighting fireworks with friends and family. It was a great week!
