We took my sister Brianna to Strawberry Days again just like we did last year! Brianna's gold fish Bowser that she won herself last year had died about a week before while they were in Blue Water, New Mexico. She was very excited to win herself a new fish. She reminded my mom almost every day that it was a carnival fish and wasn't supposed to last that long but it did! Brianna was extra BRAVE this year she wanted to ride the FERRIS WHEEL, even though she was scared of heights she still wanted to! She did discover this year that she really enjoys the expensive carnival games MORE than she likes the rides. She wanted to win herself a fish, we bought one bucket of balls for $5 and she won herself 2 fish!! She named them Carrot and Cookie, sadly Carrot only last one night. Brianna wanted to feed her to the cats but my mom suggested that flushing her down the toilet would be a better option. We let her play one more carnival game after that she picked the Dart Balloon game she did a great job and won herself a little dinosaur all by herself, she was very proud of that. Nate even broke some bottles and won her a cheetah stuff animal, she was a little confused why he picked up the balls the through them and not her... After melting at the carnival we headed to our pool! Brianna was a little scared at first since she has only been in swim lessons for a couple weeks now but we got her a floaty and she had a great time. She decided that swim lessons were no longer fun because with us and her floaty she could go to the deep section and for her that was alot more fun!
Friday night we FINALLY went to the Drive In movies even though we kept changing our minds a thousand times if we were going or not. Nate forgot our pump for our air mattress but was determined to be comfortable he started blowing it up himself! I was pretty impressed he got it pretty full in the 30 min he had before the movie started! I was amazed people packed GIANT LOVE SACS in their cars for the movies. What is nice is all of the showing are double features! We saw Madagascar 3 and What to Expect When you are Expecting. Nate basically slept through the entire first movie, but thats ok he was tired. I have not stayed up that late in a VERY LONG TIME! Shockingly i was not as tired as i thought i would be today i may change my opinion on that tonight while we are at the rodeo but we will see.
So Nate and i feel asleep after i got off work on Saturday before the RODEO. We woke up at 7:20 which is 10 min before it starts Nate jumped out of bed and rushed over. Sadly it was packed! We tried to stay as long as possible but we had HORRIBLE seats so we finally gave up and went to the carnival. THANKFULLY the Lehi Rodeo has assigned seats even though we were there plenty early! Its always fun to see Trevor in the Rodeos especially when he does well. He took 2nd that night and 3rd over all.

He will attend Nationals in November and compete against other winners from the other states! GOOD LUCK!

We had our first Payson Lakes fishing adventure of the year. Nate wasn't even done putting his pole together by the time i pulled out my first fish! ( i had 3 before his pole was ever in the water) We had a fun night catching fish with his little brother Michael. The night ended with the score of:
(guess my pink fishing pole really does work)

Nate caught himself a toothless piranha also known at a Bluegil. Which later became my brother little pet.. AJ was playing by the water and this fish would not leave him alone! It kept coming back at one point he said he could feel it tugging on his swimsuit DEFINITELY a PIRANHA! Sunday morning we got up early to go to RAINBOW BRIDGE my dad was sure I had been there before but I didn't remember it.. And we have been going to Lake Powell since I was 12 so I think I would have remembered it if I had. After our choppy waved voyage and my dad taking us down these narrow... I dont even know what to call it I should probably have Nate write this part because I am traumatized and have nothing good to say.
The drive home was really entertaining, lets just say we have obviously spent lots of time in the car lately. All in all it was a good trip but like all trips not long enough!
