Super 4th of July...belated.

We had some super adventures on fourth of July weekend. The festivities began the night of the 2nd when we met up with our friends Mike, Bre and Ande along with both Bre and Mike's families in the mountains. We had a campfire, delicious pulled pork sandwiches and dutch oven cobbler! It was fun to hang out and laugh and it was Anson's first kinda camping experience (we didn't sleep up there), so that was exciting.

Mexican Horse Race (not at all meant to be racist):  4 people (or as many as you want) are given a mexican name and you have to stand up in front of everyone and tap your legs very loudly like a horse and one at a time yell your given name as loud as possible and then it speeds up and then you have to tap your legs and then yell hoof and your given name as loud as possible.  The names given were: Bre (Juan), Mike (Juilo), Don (Arted) and Carl (Alejandro).  This is so hilarious and we didn't get it until the very end, which is exactly what I caught on camera. Listen closely to Don.

July 3rd:

Our morning started with the parade in Victor, which happen to take place two blocks from our house (yeeeesssss), followed by the craft fair and delightful food and then later that night we had more food at Huntsman Springs where I ate hardly anything, but had two brownies (they were so amazing, I should have taken a picture).  Our night ended hearing a very patriotic speech by Glenn Beck who was invited to Huntsman Springs by the owner of the golf course/development John Huntsman.  Then FIREWORKS! It was an great day.

July 4th:

We spent driving to Southern Utah to Deer Springs Ranch for a family reunion.  Pictures and stories to follow!
