Also while we were in UT we attended the 24th of July parade downtown. It was wonderful and brought back a lot of memories for me of living there and always going to the parade. My kids don't get the opportunity to go to a parade that often. Actually ever, now that I think about it. So thank you Dad for encouraging us to go! We were also very lucky that Andrew once again picked a home that is right on the parade route and facing west. After a long day at Lagoon, Andrew camped out all night and saved us some great space, in the shade right up front! You are a saint Andrew! Here are some pics of all the family enjoying the fun!

So I am doing better, it has only been a month since my last post. Last weekend we spent in Utah visiting family and friends and celebrating Heather's birthday and the 24th of July. Heather's birthday we spent at Lagoon in the 101 degree heat. Andrew and my fearless children decided they wanted to ride the sky coaster. That is where they strap you into a harness, pull you back and up about the length of a football field and let you go. It is like a giant swing, only you are laying on your stomachs. I checked with several of the official Lagoon workers and they assured me no one had ever hit the ground. Here are some pictures from their ride. On both I am way zoomed in so you can't really appreciate how high up they are.
