- Hot Dog Roast with Peterson Crew
So it's tradition in my family, especially on "moon night", to head to the hills or out to Big Rocks for a hot dog roast. We sometimes try and guess where the moon will come up on the horizon and sometimes break out in the song, "When the moon comes over the mountain..." If you don't know it, which most of you probably don't, it's okay. It's a Peterson thing:) We were in Utah for my brother, Michael's, wedding, and were lucky to get a good roast in. We had a beautiful sunset and nothing beats sitting around a camp fire with this great crew. And the kids can't get enough of their cousins!
- Michael and Lindsey's Wedding & Reception
In May, my little bro married the girl that he has been in love with since the 8th grade! They are such a great couple and she is hilarious to be around! Speaking of....they are in California right now celebrating their 1st anniversary. sigh. Consider this post a celebration of them! Anyway, it was wonderful being in the temple with my family and the reception was beautiful! Her colors were a turquoise blue and chocolate brown. I loved the center pieces. Lindsey and her mom painted all the apples. Such a cool idea. Brooklyn could not stop staring at the beautiful "princess". We had a great time and even busted a few dance moves! Oh, and check out the photo of the boquet being tossed. My niece Brinlee caught it. All I have to say is, "Yeah right, Brin, not for at least 15 years!!"
- The 4th of July
We ventured out to watch a parade and enjoyed a favorite little street carnival afterwards, where the kids had a ball getting their faces painted, playing in the jump houses and slides, watching the balloon man create something for them, and eating popcorn, sno-cones, and cotton candy. All for FREE! For the fireworks that night, we went to a little waterfront park on the Sound and prepared ourselves for what we thought would be an incredible show. Let's just say we were so far away from the action that we could barely even hear the big boom noises from the fireworks. We instead, were entertained by Brooklyn and Isaac dancing for us and playing on the lawn. We did have a great view of all the fireworks across the sound, all along Whidbey Island though. It was just a little quiet, that's all!
