Pioneer Day and Caleb's Blessing

So you may be getting sick of the mixed posts, but there is so much to keep up on lately and this is the easiest way so you will just have to deal with it!
First off, Real Soccer Game,
For the 24th this year we were lucky enough to score free tickets to the Real Soccer game. I was pretty resistant to go at first. Soccer is not exactly my sport of choice, and I've actually never even seen a game before. Since it was free, we made our way to Rio Tinto Stadium to see what all the fuss was about. Plus there were fireworks after the show. I was actually pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the game. On the one side there was an entire section whose job was to be loud, energetic, and crazy the entire game. I was so entertained watching them that I didn't even notice how boring the game was. Ha ha, it wasn't that bad, but really how lame is a game that ends in a 1-1 score. Really? A tie? Anyway, Averie was good the entire game. She started out taking a nap for the majority of the time, but later woke up and was happy as could be. She surprised me during the fireworks. I was trying to keep her all covered and protected when Brian told me to let her watch. I didn't think there was anyway that she would be able to see them let alone have them catch her attention. She stared the entire show at the fireworks. She was totally amazed. It was such a blast and we might go again if the tickets are free...Maybe...

Secondly, if you think Averie is cute, wait til you see her cousin Caleb.
Is he not just the cutest little boy? That nose! Those eyes! That hair! Those lips! Oh I just want to eat him up! Well it was his blessing today and I was so glad that we were able to be there. See I am just the worst Aunt in the world and for reasons I can't remember, I missed both Evan's and Issac's blessings. I was not going to miss this little guy's.I had to take a pic of the cousins. They both were like, "What the heck are you doing to us?"Here is my freakishly large baby. Just kidding, but holy crap kiddo! You make Caleb look like a newborn! Averie is getting so chunky and I love it. It's ok that strangers think she's six months old. At least you know she is not going hungry!Does it bother anyone that it is August 1? Where did the summer go? Only a few weeks left.
