Utah has a lot of rodeos throughout the summer, but the best one is most definitely Strawberry Days. Why? A: it's a whopping 7-minute drive from my house, and B: strawberries and cream, of course! Back in my dating days, I'd make my dates take me to a Strawberry Days event every. single. day. so I could get my good ol' $1 cup of strawberries and cream. Now it's $1.25 a cup (pure money-making genius on their part) and tastes just as great as ever!
Going to the rodeo with my family is honestly a blast since I get to see these cute babies' reactions to everything. Exhibit A: The mutton-bustin'. They were definitely feeling for their little friends when they fell off those sheep.
Cute, huh? The next ones are of Gabe pointing at the cows (during the wild cow milking contest) and Kaleb getting in on the picture-taking action with my mom's cell phone.
EVERYONE loves the strawberries and cream!
Also last week was my future nieces' ballet recital. They go to Clytie Adams, which is where my best friend in 2nd grade went, so it was a little nostalgic :-) Anyway, they were such good little dancers and were so cute in their tutus!
Last but not least, Gabe's newest discovery: remote control cars. He saw Matthew's jeep and wanted to play with it, so Heidi & I grabbed the controller and decided to have a little fun. We would move the jeep just a couple inches when Gabe wasn't touching it and he was so confused! He kept looking under and all around it to try to figure out what was going wrong and then finally asked it, "Car, are you okay?" Adorable.

After the Temple, we went to Cheesecake Factory. It amazes me every time how much food they give you! I always have to box half of it before I even start... but that makes me finish before Matt, leaving me with nothing to do except take pictures of him eating (while he asks me if I really need to take a picture of him eating). See? Our great waiter solved the problem by taking a picture of both of us once our cheesecakes came. I tried the tuxedo one this time--instant favorite. Matt got the banana cream one, which was good, but I think I'd still prefer that as a pie.

Following the obligatory ice sculpture pictures, we walked outside to a GORGEOUS night and meandered around the Air Gardens for awhile. The Academy is always beautiful in the twilight.
