July 24Th and Toquerville Falls
So my pictures are all backwards....lets hope this makes some sense:) After our long 24th day this is what my car ended up looking like and my dads was a little worst of then mine. If you can't tell that is his muffler on top of his car. Oh yes it fell off:) We will just say it is a little rough drive up to the falls. We had way too much fun! we started the day by going to the parade in cedar which was the longest parade of my life but a very good one. It lasted almost 2 hrs. long. Emmitt can only handle 30 min maybe an hour so he wasn't so happy at the end as you will see. Then we headed to toquerville falls. It was my first time being there! They are beautiful and perfect to swim in. The water was perfect actually warm.
The muffler falling off at the very end when we were almost out of the little canyon.
Toquervile FallsThe were seriously beautiful

Catching Tadpoles.
At the park swinging after the parade. Uncle joe sure liked pushing you!
You tired of being at the parade an hour and half later:)
You liked the dragon though!
YOu ran out and got a frisbee from the parade.
YOu thought the firetrucks were the best of the whole thing!
you, ethan and aunt shannon waiting for candy!

Bryce Canyon Trip
My family was headed to Cedar City to visit and then later to go camping on the mountain. We were planning on going to Bryce so we called them up and ask them if they wanted to meet us there then drive over to cedar:) It happened to all work out perfect! It has been so long since I have been to Bryce Canyon! I can't even remember. So I was very excited! My mom, dad, jessie, and joseph, Mary and Kevin, and Grandma Jean all went on the trip.

Dad and Emmitt chasing eachother. Emmitt was giggling so hard!
I love this picture, Mitt just taking in the beauty all around.
These two never would stop chasing eachother the whole time! You would think they would get tired.:)

The trip was so worth it, I came to find out that we will have to plan a weekend to go back and spend more time there. They had tonz of hikes I would love to do and much more to see. We only had time to check out the oversights! They were beautiful though!
Westwood Family Reunion!
The reunion turned out to be so great! We headed to Marsha's house, Mary's sisters, which happens to be the perfect place to have a reunion! Seriously, I have never seen such a great fun backyard:) They had a tramp, a slide, a rope swing, and a sand volleyball court. Emmitt was in heaven I sware. Emmitt was literally the energize bunny when he entered this backyard, he had to check out everything which meant very little sitting and visiting for me:) no worries I didn't mind checking out everything with him. We had food, played in the water, sand in Emmitts shorts and much much more as you will see by the pictures. It felt great to be apart of such a wonderful family!

getting ready to go and eat inside.
Here is the rope swing! I know its nuts isn't it. I never was able to try it out but that will be a goal of mine next reunion!
Emmitt and Kade headed down the water slide. The water slide was the big hit of the day! You had to wait in line like you would at a water park. Everyone wanted to go down it!
Way to go Honey!!!
Here is the line. At some points there were kids on each step clear to the bottom waiting.
Granny and Emmitt enjoying the slide to!
At some point and time all the little girls just kept taking you down the slide with them. They would just ask me if they could! I didn't mind at all and neither did you:)
The start of Water Balloon War! They had six little kid pools filled with water balloons ready to be thrown! Kevin, Tason, and Kade took advantage of those pretty quickly as did the kids around them. All out war started:)

Tason getting ready to launch.
Emmitt was too cute instead of throwing them he would help out by picking them up and handing them off to someone who needed them.
After hard play He finally decided to settle down and take a dip in the pool! Thanks Aunt Marsha for having such a great reunion and a fun place for it to be held! Emmitt will be excited for the next one to come, as will I:)
