My Pretty Pink Vacuum

This is my new pretty pink vacuum. I love it! I never thought that I would be excited about buying a vacuum, but I am excited about this vacuum for 2 reasons.
1. It is pink
2. We bought it because we are moving into our own apartment!!
We move in just over a week! We are so excited, but at the same time, we are both kind of clueless as to what we need, because neither of us have ever lived on our own. We did go last night and buy some of the essentials like silverware and a kitchen trash can and a toaster and my pretty pink vacuum :) I have a feeling that the first few weeks of living on our own are going to be pretty interesting because we will still be trying to figure everything out, but I am oh so excited!

Trip to the Renaissance Fair

Jesse and I took my brother Michael down to Cedar City this past weekend to go to the Renaissance Fair that they have down there every year. I have never been before, but I've heard Heather talk about all the fun things they have there so I really wanted to go, and it was so much fun! We got down there Friday afternoon and went to the Greenshow, because you can't go to Cedar in the summer and not go to the Greenshow at least once. We then
headed over to the Renaissance Fair where we saw some nasty belly dancers and really cool fire dancers
Us watching the fire dancersThen we walked around to all the tents that they had set up and just looked at all of the fun things people were selling.
On Saturday, we went to the Shakespearean Festival gift store headed back to the fair and bought a bunch of fun stuff. I got a new bag, a dream catcher to hang in my car, a dream catcher necklace, and some dream catcher earrings (I have no idea how I got so obsessed with dream catchers, but I love them). Jesse got a dagger, which was from the Shakespearean gift shop, and one of those magnetic bracelets that supposedly cure pretty much anything.
This was one of the camels they had that you could ride!
Saturday afternoon, we were all planning on going to Harry Potter, but my Uncle Al surprised Jesse and I with tickets to a play called Noises Off! for that afternoon, so while we went to the play, Heather and Michael went to Harry Potter. The play was hilarious! I had never heard of it before, but it was great!
Here we all are outside the gift store

And chillin with Shakespeare
Saturday evening we went back to the fair one last time and Micheal and Heather got henna tattoos and I got feather extensions in my hair :)
I couldn't get enough of the fair. All the people there were so interesting.. and strange, and there were so many fun things to look at- and buy :) It was definitely a very fun weekend!

4th of July

This 4th of July was a great day, full of eating and relaxing. Heather and Grandma Jones came up from Cedar City, and it was great to have the extra company here. We started our day at midnight the night before when Heather, Michael, Jesse and I went to reserve a spot for the parade in Kaysville. It's absolutely crazy just how many people go out a whole day before and reserve their spots for the parade, but we were able to find a tiny little square that was still open right by Davis High. The morning of the 4th, we headed back to Kaysville for the parade, which turned out to be nothing more than a bunch of car and trucks driving by with banners hanging off the sides of them. The highlight was the Davis High marching band that passed right at the beginning. It was still fun though. I think we all had more fun waiting for the parade to start :)
Dad enjoyed his handheld yahtzee game
Heather, Michael and dad
Heather and I being super pretty
And Jesse and I looking lovely :)
After the parade Jesse and I decided to go on our own little picnic, but it started to rain right as we went, so we ended up just going to a park and sitting in his truck to eat.. it was still fun though. For dinner dad made hamburgers on the grill and we made homemade root beer, yum!
We then went back to Kaysville for the fireworks at Davis High, and again, I think we had more fun waiting for them to start than anything..

And then we got pretty

And then Michael and I decided to plank
Happy 4th of July everyone!!!!!
