We had to be home by this weekend to move into our new apartment but we didn't know that we were going to be lucky enough to make it for the Eugene Celebration. We took a break from the move because we couldn't miss the Slug Queen Parade.
Hardly any of my photos turned out because the lighting was bad, but fortunately for me my friend Michelle took a bunch and I'm hoping she doesn't mind that I am stealing them.
The Slug Train was being harassed by a huge salt shaker which brought a mixture of responses from the sidelines. There were cheers from those who have slug-infested gardens, and jeers from the Slug Queen supporters.
This guy has been seen around town petitioning people to stop using plastic bags.

Becky sent me this picture that we took right before we left Utah. I wanted to post it because it will be the last one of us all together before they have their own little baby boy.
We enjoyed our drive home in our new mini-van. The newest member of our Rigby team is a gold Honda Odyssey and it sure made the trek between our two homes much more endurable. It may have been better for the mere fact that we had space for all of the baby stuff that I had stored at my mom's house and 50 lbs. of produce that Mike sent. It was also really nice after a couple of years without to reintroduce our family to air conditioning. The DVD player seemed like it was going to be pretty fun for the girls, but they were bored in about 20 minutes. Daisy refused to wear the headphones and Rocky said that the movie was just "too long."

We all got up early on Monday morning to try out the all you can eat French Toast at Kneaders which was super delicious.

We've been having a lot of fun hanging out with all of Brandon's siblings and there is obviously a lot of silliness when the cousins get together.

Rocky was upset too, at first, but once we got to the little stream she perked up and was her usual happy self, chatting all the way back.

My mom got us all tickets to the Brigham City Temple open house. Apparently they are pretty hard to come by even though there were 250,000 given away. We felt lucky to take a tour because it is beautiful.
Afterward we had a picnic in the park and tried to get some photos of all the grandkids together. I'm sure that anyone who has ever tried to get a bunch of kids to all look cute at the same time has learned that it is a fool's errand. We're not even that big of a family but it took a lot of time and enough of me yelling to put everyone in a bad mood.
I also think it is important to note that Daisy ate a chicken strip that was almost the size of her head.

There were games, of course, and a lot of time playing in the water. For Matt's kids that meant that they actually got themselves wet, but for mine it was that they poked their toes in and then spent the rest of the time throwing rocks and getting themselves all muddy on the sidelines.
It was super fun just to kick it in Smithfield Canyon. Although we were only about 10 minutes from Matt's house it was so great to get outside and enjoy being together.
