Orchard days this year was very full of events. It started off with running the 5k. I placed 4th overall in womens and 2nd in my age group. It was not a good run for me. I think I am retiring from running races.
We then went to the parade which Addie was in for her cheerleading group
After the parade it was time for face painting
As you might have guessed Trey was very pleased with his stop sign
The four of us then entered the cherry pit spit. The top ten women move on to the finals I placed 11th. Darn it! In the kids age groups the top 5 move on. Trey and PJ were in the same division. PJ placed 6th and Trey placed 8th. Addie placed 3rd in the preliminaries and so she went on to the finals where she placed 4th. She is a little too competitive. She was very upset with her 4th place finish. I thought it was great
Here she is in in the finals. Spitting her last cherry pit
It was then time for the pie eating contest. My kids enjoyed this but none of them finished their pie
That night Addie was in the rodeo for being the little miss Santaquin Queen. Addie and I also stayed and watched the whole rodeo and fireworks. we got home really late and didn't make it to church on time the next morning
I have a good husband ( a little grouchy sometimes) and three beautiful children.When I am not indulging in the joys of motherhood, you may find me teaching dance to kindergartners or coaching Special Olympics.
