Manti High

Friday we went down to Manti for my sister Ariel's high school graduation. It was so fun to go back to my old school and see people I haven't seen in years. I particularly enjoyed singing the school song at the end of the ceremony.

Here I am with 3 of my 4 sisters. Left to right: Alexis (29), Ariel (18), Me (25) and Deanna (15).
The next morning we headed to Ephraim for the Scandinavian Festival. Here we all are at the parade. Left to right: Shantara, Danny, Mark's ear, Mandie, Brandon, Lincoln, Mason, Nora, Alexis, Jan. My mom was escorting Ariel and the Miss Manti Royalty (the fun job that comes with having a daughter as Miss Manti) and Deanna was on the Miss Independent float (good thing she is the first attendant and not the queen or my mom would have been in big trouble!) And my brother Chris and his kids were promoting his motor-cross track.
You know this crew. That's my new stroller. I love that it has reclining seats and a rain cover. Here Ivy is snoozing away out of the rain.
My favorite part of the festival is all the great food. We always eat BBQ turkey with piccadillies for lunch and follow it up with a multitude of treats. I love this shot of Millie and her stick of cotton candy bigger than her head! We helped her out a little bit, but she truly ate the vast majority of it.

Hey, looks like you had a fun weekend. Your stroller looks so nice. I bet it is a relief to have both kids fit in there.

In the picture with you and your sisters Alexis looks just like you. You're so funny to include Mark's ear in the naming of people. =) Looks like fun.
