To start off our summer we were able to celebrate the great city of Eagle Mountain! To start off the week, we got to go on a Scavenger Hunt, seeing some of the businesses that are in Eagle Mountain. Then you turned in your items from the Scavenger Hunt and you were entered into a drawing. Riley ended up winning a pass to Trafalga, a fun center with mini golf, go-karts, batting cages, etc.
Here's one of the items from the Scavenger Hunt. We had to take a picture in front of the stadium for the rodeo. Maybe I should have picked an area that didn't have all the port 'o potties.
When we turned in our form for the Scavenger Hunt, they were having an animal show and a petting zoo.
They also had a baby contest, so I entered Chase. Unfortunately he did not win, I don't think he was dressed up like a cowboy enough (there were babies with belt buckles and cowboy boots). At least I got a really cute picture of him taken for FREE! So it was totally worth entering.
The next day was the geocaching event. If you don't know what that is, it's kind of like treasure hunting with a GPS. We were given 5 sets of coordinates and we had to find the box with the password. We turned in our forms with the passwords and were entered into a drawing. Riley once again won something. He got a set of planter boxes from Home Depot. And Cody won a date night to Trafalga, so now we have 3 passes to Trafalga.
The night of the drawing they had a carnival, Riley had a blast. I'm not sure how much fun Chase had, doesn't he look thrilled.
To end the week full of fun, Eagle Mountain had a parade. It was really big, they had over 120 entries! Here's a few pictures of us sitting at the parade and one with Cosmo. Cosmo wanted us to dance, so we did hoping he'd throw us a shirt. But he didn't throw us one, he only had so many and we were at the very beginning of the parade. Riley got a ton of stuff though, probably 4 lbs of candy, 2 frisbees, a toothbrush, a mini football, and many other items.
It was a really fun week and a great way to kick off our summer!
