Beaver, Utah

We went down to Beaver this weekend. Where is Beaver, Utah? It's about 2 1/2 hours south of Riverton. What's in Beaver you ask?Trent's family.

Beaver is the cutest little town. They have several really cute traditions. The 24th of July is when all the natives migrate back to Beaver. They have this parade, and they throw TONS of candy and curd cheese (yes really!) After the parade, they have a gathering in the town park. Beaver does their High School Reunions every 5 years, and they usually fall on the 24th weekend.

There is a Thanksgiving tradition as well. The Light Parade. There was about 5 floats with lights on them. Once again they threw out candy, and Santa came riding on a Firetruck. After that, Santa goes to the town park, and turns on the town lights.

Why did you go to Beaver you ask? Rhonda (Trent's sister) set up family pictures. Everybody was there. I think that was a first! It was super cold, and the kids really didn't want to cooperate. But what's new?

All the grandkids with Grandma and Grandpa Barney.

During family pictures, I found out that Trent's step-sis Amy is pregnant! Congrats to the Groll family!!!

I think this is the closest I've ever been to a deer. There were some people on the side of the road feeding them.

Trent's step-mom Jan is the best cook ever! She made us all another yummy Thanksgiving dinner.

The kids were off having tons of fun running Grandpa Barney's trains, playing hide-n-go seek, and the game I now call Bucket Butts. They'd sit in the buckets until they were pretty well stuck, and then they'd race to the end of the garage. Whoever won, would then be the race conductor.
