24th of july

What a great holiday the 24th of july is. The day the mormon pioneers came to the salt lake valley. A unique holiday to utah, with a hug parade. I debated on whether or not I should wake my kids early and drag them down the street to the parade. I was on the fence, knowing it would be easier to let themand me sleep.

I was remembering my childhood and the many good memories of going to the parade with my dad and my cousins. So I did it. I got my kids up, talked my mom into going, and here is the evidence we went to the parade.

This picture below is the best evidence that we were there. ha ha. this nice young lady sat in front of us after the parade had started and gave us a wonderful view throughout the rest of the parade. Iknow its tacky that I photographed, but man.

The day before Mo got stung by something, maybe a bee or a wasp, not sure. By the next day her hand started to swell and by last night this is what it looked like. Her hand was twice the size. The swelling also moved up her arm. It's finally looking a little better tonight.

Don't worry that is just cream on her hand. Talk about bad luck this is the second time she has been stung in a month. The other was on the 4th of july on her foot and it swelled up too. Some patriotic love from the bees.

You left out the picture of the poop hanging out of that butt crack?

Probably for the better.
