We had a lot of good food! My dad made marinated turkey and dutch oven potatoes. He also had some fresh green beans from his garden--yum! We all brought salads, fruit, and desserts. It was all so delicious! We were very full from all of the good food.
We took some pictures of all who were there. Here they are.

We first started in Mapleton. We were near the beginning of their parade. It was a fun, kinda low key parade. The girls didn't get too tired and it wasn't too hot yet. Then we went straight over to Spanish Fork and were 2nd to last in that parade. So, it all worked out and we were able to do both parades.
Here are a few pictures from the Mapleton parade. I was on the trailer with them, so I had the side view.
They are performing on the back of a flat bed diesel trailer. At Payson, I had always had my teams "march" down the street and stop every so often and dance. We also did arm movements and ripples as we marched.
They survived their first two parades in a row! Our administration was at the end of each parade handing out water, powerade, and ice cream bars. It was great!
I also have to give a big thanks to Sunroc--they let us use one of their trucks and trailors. I'm very grateful for that. Also to my assistant Marci Hite's mom, Kathy Williams, she designed the nice banners that we had made for the parades. Hanks Signs in Payson printed them. Thanks everyone! It was a great first parades experience.

All of the food, favors, etc. were pink--or close to it! We had butterfly shaped sugar cookies, cream cheese filled cupcakes, ham sandwiches, pink-fluff strawberry salad, and strawberry lemonade.

We also decided to go to the judging at the park. There were only 15 or so contestants, so we didn't think it would take too long. Here is Jaden modeling:
On Friday, I went down and went to lunch with my friend Melanie. I haven't see her for years! She lives in Arizona now. She was up staying with her parents that still live in Nephi. We had a good time catching up and just talking about the good ol' days! Here is a picture of Melanie and I:
My dad rode through the parade in this old Highway Patrol car. He is the passenger.
My aunt Judy was also a former Ute Stampede Rodeo Queen. Here they are--the rodeo queen sisters!
Later on, we all went to the rodeo. Here we are--our seats were in the new section of covered bleachers that they added to the arena this year. They were very nice!
