ART TO START......the weekend

We started the weekend by going to the Utah Arts Festival. This is such an awesome event that happens every year. It is in Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City. This was my 3rd year taking the girls. It is 4 days full of wonderful artists and really fun things for kids to do and a way to explore their creativity. We always stop at "The Mad Hatter" and the girls make hats. I love what they come up with. Bronwyn's was especially funny. The booth is sponsored by Roberts and only costs $3. They have lots of supplies. I love the hats that come out of that booth as I watch all the kids create. After an afternoon at the Arts Festival we headed back to Lehi so Nat and I could judge the floats for the Lehi City Parade. They called us up a month ago and asked us to judge. It was really fun. Nat especially got into it. There were about 40 floats (miniature) and some were just so dang cute! The theme was " If I Could, I Would...." We had to judge a lot of different criteria. I'm including pics of the ones that we thought were especially clever and cute. We went to the parade and of course the girls had fun catching all the candy that was thrown. I love a hometown parade! There is something just so sweet about it. A town coming together to celebrate the people and place they live. I love my little hometown!

Lehi Roundup Days Boutique

One of the great things about living in a small town in Utah is that almost everyone of them has a hometown celebration. Next week is Lehi's Roundup Days. Lots of fun activities planned every night and it kicked off with the boutique this weekend. I have never done this boutique before, but because I'm not doing Swiss Days, I thought why not? I just finished tonight and thought I would post some photos. If you see anything you are interested in, just leave a comment or call me. We will be there all day tomorrow (Saturday June 20), stop by and see me! Hopefully, the weather will hold out.

On another note, BRONWYN was chosen as one of 5 finalists in her age group for "Lehi's Got Talent". We are so proud of her! She performs Monday night at Wines Park at the Community Picnic. Come listen if you are out our way.
