Oh ya here is a picture of who I ran the Freedom 5K with. Thanks Amanda for being my partner. Jake and Kyle for onion days I plan on ditching you so be ready. I did beat my goal of finishing in under 30 min. I finished in about 29 Min. and 30 sec. after the delay at the starting line.

We took a short much needed get away to Park City. Rode the bikes up Friday Stayed at the Holiday Inn then played all day Saturday and came home in the evening. BIG thanks to my sister Annie and her Hubs Rhett for watching the kids butt mostly Brooke who woke up sick. Thanks for putting up with that ;)

In front of the Alpine slide.

In front of the Hotel which was way nice. Got a little hot tub time and an huge continental breakfast.

It was a long busy weekend. First we started by camping in Grandma and Grandpa Alvey's back yard. Then an early rise with Jake and Kyle to go run the Freedom 5K. Afterward we met the family at the parade. After the parade we went back to Grandma Alvey's for a BBQ and Pool party. Due to the fact that the camera was left in Zach hands is the reason why I have so few pictures. My apologies.

Staduim of Fire-Fire works. Every year we go to the same spot order some Ceasers, a cooler of pop, always carmel pop corn and treats, and a few thing to do to pass the time. And it is always a fun night of Fire Friends and Food.

I needed a break from the kids playing out side in the heat. The constant applying of sunscreen, feeling like a water Nazi, sweeping up the grass tracked in from outside when they play in the water.....Soooo I got ambitious and made play dough for the kids which is a treat cause I HATE play dough. But I figured oh well if they ruin it cause I cooked it for pennies.

Recipe for cooked Play dough.
1 C. flour
1 C. water
1 tbsp. oil
1/2 C. salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar

Stir and cook until consistency of wet mashed potatoes. Take off the heat and knead by hand until it looks like play dough . Keeps for approximately 2 months. Store in refrigerator. **** I noticed it need to be heated until it is nearly impossible to stir by hand. or it will be to sticky to knead.****
