Fair Days 2009

I have to say that as soon as Fair Days ends that means summer is over. We had a lot of fun this summer. We went to Jackson Hole, built a derby car, crashed a derby car, played softball, and had fun at 7 peaks!

We wanted to have my derby car done by July 24 because it is Cameron's birthday. So we went out to start my car so I could practice driving it before the derby. But it wouldn't start and wouldn't start! We figured out that the carburetor was bad. So we got another one and it wouldn't work either! So by this point I was thinking that I wasn't gonna be able to drive. But we finally got another one that worked. We went over to a field in Midway to let me practice. Well Cameron thought that he needed to take it for a spin and ended up braking my back axle! Not many can say they broke and axle BEFORE the derby! I drove the next night in the actual derby. It was fun, but I don't think I ever need to do it again. Especially since I was sore for a week! But at least I can say I have done it! Needless to say my awesome brother-in-law won the derby! He is an awesome driver!

We spent the next week at the Heber Fair Days, watching my sisters show their lambs, playing at the carnival, and watching the parade. I am so sad to see summer go, but super excited for the next chapter of our lives to start....sending Lexi to pre school! I can't believe she is already old enough!

This is my beautiful derby car AFTER the derby. The rear fender got pretty damaged!

My cute girls and I at the Fireworks on the 24th of July. (Cameron was fixing the rear axle that he broke!)

Lexi thought she needed to try on my helmet and get ready for the derby!

Lexi and Rachel riding in the parade on the derby car. Brad's trophy is taller than Rachel!

My cute mom and Quinn at the parade.


  1. I still can't believe you rode in the derby...that takes guts if you ask me.

  2. Seriously, I wish I could've seen you drive in the derby! Oh well- still cute pictures though.
