The new small 4 wheelers were definitely a hit with all the kids.
The kids were having fun from sun up to sun down and later of course. Making things, doing crafts, playing in the river, riding 4-wheelers, shooting army men and empty pop cans at Davin's shooting gallery, roasting whatever, and getting as dirty as they could all day!
On the 24th of July we went into the town of Marysvale. It is a very small town but they know how to throw a party!! It started with a parade, where each kid was loaded up with candy, toys, water bottles, Frisbees, all sorts of stuff. Then it was off to the city park for games, races and great food! I could not believe the prizes they were giving away and neither could my kids. Rylie did not even want any tickets at first, but when the younger kids came back with all their loot, she and Lexi where all about playing some "little kid" games!
Then we walked over to the Rodeo where we had great seats and lots of games for the kids in between the rodeo events. They got the chance to catch a chicken that they could trade back for five dollars. Skylar was laughing so hard she couldn't even see where the chicken was through her tears of laughter. Davin and Ashton touched feathers but no one in our family ended up with the half plucked chicken. The older kids chased a cow with a ribbon tied to its tail, whoever ended up with the ribbon got themselves 10 bucks. Rylie and Lexi did not even try to go after it. When I asked Rylie what she was doing out there she replied " That thing had horns , I wasn't going after it".
But the highlight of the day was the FISH RODEO. All the kids entered into this big cemented area. They filled it up with about 6-7 inches of water and then dumped in over 200 trout. After that is was a free for all. They had to use their hands but whatever they caught they could keep!
It looks like fish for dinner tonight!!!!!
Skylar was so sad when we told her the fish was not a pet but rather her dinner. She was convinced that if we just filled up the tub at home her fish would come back alive and could be her pet!
The kids had fun walking through the little town and seeing the sights!
We all loved the day we spent at the lake.
Rylie tried water skiing, but didn't really like it too well but we were proud of her for trying. Grandpa thought he could water ski from the sitting, relaxed position just off the shore but he could not get up, not that way anyway!
The tube was probably everyone funnest part of day. They even loved getting thrown off!
One the way home we stopped at Big Rock Candy Mountain that is just a few minutes outside of Marysvale. It is really worth seeing. Our kids thought it should be renamed to Big Carmel Sunday Mountain, I agreed!
