Honeycutt BBQ at Aunt Tami's

Reece, Dayton and Landon are trying to make a getaway in their cousin Brady's jeep.  Aunt Tami and Uncle Chris played host for a Honeycutt family get together.  All my siblings except one were there and the cousins all had fun playing.  Uncle Chris also bought a huge supply of fireworks and put on a show for everyone.  It was great to get everyone together.
Chris likes to light a bunch at a time and did I mention this was a Sunday in a Utah neighborhood, I'm sure all the neighbors were horrified!  :)
The whole crew watching the fireworks.  Yes it is still daylight but we all have little kids and want them in bed when it's dark.  I know I know.

Marysvale July 24th Weekend

Even though Sadie was very clingy to mom and dad and didn't like posing for a picture we all had a great time at Grandma and Grandpa Jensen's.  Cousins Braden, Tannice and Brody were there to visit as well.

Marysvale always starts the 24th of July off with a fabulous parade.  The best part about small town parades is that you can get to "main street" about 5 minutes before the parade starts and about 15 minutes later the parade is over and you can go home.  It's my favorite!  Here you have the outhouse float with the dude in the long johns.  He was waving toilet paper at the crowd.  I'm not sure what this float means but it was a crowd favorite.
Here he is showing his better side.
Another awesome thing about small town parades is that they throw out a ton of candy and small toys.  Here little Reece has scored a big plastic dinosaur.  You don't get that from the big city parades.  The kids had a ball.  
After the morning parade mom went home with Reece and Sadie for a little break and Grandpa, dad, Landon and Dayton went to the Marysvale Rodeo to watch the bull riders.  After the actual rodeo with bulls and horses and stuff the town hosts a "Fish Rodeo" for kids.  This is a big attraction for the town and visitors such as ourselves and tons of fun for the kids.  A big rink place gets filled up with about 2 feet of water and then a truck pulling a water tank full of trout drives in and unloads all the fish into the water which then all the kids run around chasing the fish and try to catch them with their hands.  It's awesome. Here you can see the truck pulling in with the tank of fish. 
For some reason there was a rooster there. It didn't really seem out of place but I thought I would photo and document it so you could get a better feel for where we were at.
Dad is helping Reece catch his trout.  I don't think the fish really have a chance because they swim around but once they get to a side everyone traps them against the wall and then it's all over for them.

Landon and Dayton managed to grab a fish without dad's help.
Reece showing his Rodeo prize.
Sadie I have to say was not all that impressed and was wondering what all the fuss was about.
I love small town traditions like this and it's so fun to go and be able to be a part of it.  So fun.

I'm a Big Girl! 1 Year Old!

My beautiful baby girl Sadie Ann is 1 year old!  We love you Sadie, you are our princess even if you don't like your princess hat.
Most babies tear into their 1st birthday cake but little Sadie just took one little bite at a time, it was very cute and definitely different from her older brother's 1st Birthday's.
Sadie had a little help from her big brothers opening her gifts.

Things I love about Sadie Ann.
She is my girl.  She is a very serious baby.  She loves to wear her little bracelets and if she isn't wearing one she will find something that will work as a bracelet and put it on her wrist herself.  Sadie loves to give her momma and dadda kisses and will usually go back and forth between the two of us giving kisses.  Every now and then a brother might get a kiss.  Sadie is a very careful baby.  She takes her time to figure things out and takes her time eating, walking, trying out a toy.  It's very different from our other kiddos.  We love you Sadie and are so very happy to have our own little princess in our family.  Happy Birthday!

Erie 4th of July 4k

The whole Jensen family decided to run the local 4k Race.  Dad ended up finishing 3rd in his age group and the rest of us were just happy to be finished :)  We spent the rest of our 4th of July at a ward breakfast and invited friends over for a BBQ and fireworks at our home that night.  Happy Birthday America!  God Bless the USA!

Unexpected Project

Travis went out one Saturday to quickly spray a coat of stain on the fence.  He soon realized that the sprayer was getting stain all over everything we didn't want stain on so he called in the troops and we all went to work.  Two days later the fence was done :).  Gotta love those family project bonding times.
