Utah State Fair

What does the cow say?
This is the largest sculpture made out of horseshoes.

This was what her face looked like most of the time we were watching the animals.
This is an AWESOME shot of me at the DWR booth. They had a few of these cutouts with the question, "Can you see yourself working here?" Answer. NO. I would probably never hold that bird dead or alive (can't tell in the picture can you?)
On top of the world.
These were handmade pillows with creepy doll heads in the middle of them. Notice the ribbons. hmmm.

I feel like there are so many things that I need to post about, but I'll start with one of my favorite events-the Utah State Fair! This is the third year Kurt and I have gone together. After we went the first time I came home and told my family how much fun it is and I said, "How come you never took me to the fair when I was little?!" Apparently my mom had taken me to the fair at least once with my neighbors the Hick's girls and I don't remember it. Sorry mom. We had lots of fun this year with Felicity. She is pretty young, but she liked the animals and being carried around by her dad. Kurt thinks I like to go just for the food. Could be true. I also like looking at the photography exhibits.His favorite thing is watching the 4H kids show their pigs. Felicity's favorite thing was watching some people snort cocaine at the picnic table next to us. Seriously. Kurt went to buy a drink and while he was gone I looked over and this girl was pushing something around with a business card and then she leaned over with her dollar bill and snorted it. Classy. Other than that it was a wholesome family event.

Grove Creek

Last weekend, I hiked a portion of Grove Creek with family and friends. We had a great time. The first portion of the hike was kind of steep, but it came with some great views. The hike passes a couple of waterfalls about two miles in. That's where we turned around. All in all, the hike took about 2 1/2 or 3 hours.

Dad, cousin Nick, uncle Doug, some weirdy, neighbor Ernesto, friend Jake, and the bros - Seth and Bryan (my father-in-law Mike took the picture)
