4th Of July Celebrations… Never A Dull Moment

July 4, 2014

Thursday: What a beautiful morning to wake up to!

I met up with Amber, Rachelle, Melissa and Scott for a good 8.02 mile run. We finished it off in 1:02.42. It felt good and it was so nice to run with them (I have not ran with them for a couple of weeks now). I hurried home and Corom and I met up with a friend (I coach her daughter for cross country and track) to go check out some new trails on our mountain bikes. These trails are about 10 minutes away from the high school. They were amazing! 12 miles worth of trails.

I do love mountain biking! We had a good time. We rode for about 2 hours and then came home. After cleaning and doing chores, Corom and Mike and my 2 middle girls and mike’s daughter drove to Wyoming to get fireworks for our “firework” show for the 4th of July.

They had a little detour on the way home from this adventure… I guess they ran into a couple of hippies that were trying to make their way to the “Rainbow Gathering” outside of Heber City (in the mountains). I guess it was a huge gathering for all those that wanted to show their peace and love and to celebrate their freedom. They said their names were brother Emanuel and sister Alana.

I thought it was a little ironic that on the news this “peace” gathering had a few knife incidents, many arrests and lots of drugs but hey to each their own. 🙂 Always something different and adventurous when Corom’s around. They did get a lot of fireworks out of this trip. 🙂 Every year Corom, Mike and Jason B put on a show for all the neighbors (and whomever else) who don’t have a place to go to watch fireworks. We have a good time. My 2 middle children were not feeling the greatest with Corom’s driving. Mike said it was funny watching them being over dramatic!

Meanwhile, back at the house… My oldest went with G-Goat (Corom’s mom). She took my oldest out for her birthday. She has been in Australia for about 3 weeks… So it is a late birthday outing but my oldest loved it!!! My youngest and I hung out together. We had so much fun!

We watched a movie together, went for a walk, made a chocolate milk shake, made one for our 92 year neighbor (Dottie), and hung out with her for a little while. It was a nice afternoon! We all (Corom and my 4 girls) met up at the Booth’s house for a barbecue and a little firework fun…

Friday- 4th of July: I was supposed to run a race here in town but at the last minute they cancelled it… So I went for a run and ran into a friend of mine. We ran for 44:25.67 minutes. It was a nice run and good company. Thanks Tifany J. After a short time of being at home, the girls, Corom and I went to a small town called Eureka. My friend Rachelle invited us to go with her last year for their small town 4th of July celebration. We had a lot of fun last year that we wanted to go back again this year.

20140704-222227-80547910.jpg The girls rode on a fire truck around the neighborhood and then we had fun “races” to compete in.

They had a chicken competition… All the kids were put into a ring. They would release 5 chickens and whomever caught one could take it home. What do you think… Did we get a chicken?…

My 3rd child actually caught 2 of them and the 3rd one was given to us by Rachelle’s nephew. My girls did awesome in there! 😉 It was fun to watch them team up together.

Oh and as soon as we got to Eureka, my oldest jumped out of the car and had to take care of some car sickness issues. 🙂

We hung out with family and neighbors back at our house. We barbecued and played around in the backyard. (Yeah our dog, Kittie, jumped up on the table when we went inside to start cleaning up.)

We, then headed over to the gym (South Valley Gym) and Corom, Mike, Travis B, Jason B, and a few other guys began our fire work show. A little more than 50 people showed up to watch. It made the guys a little more excited and in return they began to act like little boys. :/ It was very entertaining. A couple of them were burned but it didn’t seem to bother them!

Happy 4th of July!!!
