utah award {pioneer day photos}

my phone spent the day soaking in a bowl of rice yesterday,
after i dropped it into the cowboy caviar on the way to the family yard.
it's the most delicious avocado dip, drenched in an oily dressing.
pulling oil out of the inside of an iPhone is a slow process.
this is what i have learned.
andrea's float won the UTAH award!
{lots of other people helped build the float, but i just call it "andrea's"--my apologies}
it was the float that had the most things on it "about utah."
that is how my 12 year old cousin johnny described it.
the news people on ksl loved it too.
they spent a good 30 seconds {1 hour in parade talk time} pointing out the fry sauce, green jello, etc. as the float went by their station.
after yesterday,
i never want to eat anything with sugar 
{or at least until this sugar/food coma wears off...................}
i woke up with a massive headache from all of it.
oh how lovely it was yesterday though.
another fantastic holiday at the family yard.
in the words of sean,
"it's a good thing utah gets cold in the winter b/c i couldn't do this all year round."
and in the words of me,
it's a good thing utah gets warm in the summer b/c i CAN do this all summer long!

 the end.
{until next year}
