This week Utah celebrated Pioneer Day! So like all good Utahns we went to a rodeo! The kids loved it until Gwen dropped her flip flop down the bleachers and had a total meltdown. We saw the mutton busters and the barrel racers and the bucking broncos.And even 2 buffalo! It was a lot of fun!

Ain't she a beauty?

So remember how I broke my finger in January... Working out. Lame. After having 3 pins put in, that was THREE, I said, I've had multiple follow up appointments where the doc has told me it's possible I would need the joint fussed together. Well today, at what WILL be my last appointment, he told me my sweet little pinky finger will always look terrible and the movement will never get better. And technically he thinks it would be best to fuse the first joint together so it would be straighter and not have any more pain. And to top it off, he said he would also release the tendon in that finger so the second joint would move more than 20 degrees. Who needs more than 20 degrees of movement?! Come on!

A beach in Utah?

Why yes! I've been really missing the beach lately so we decided to head up to Pineview lake to celebrate the fourth of July! It was a little trashier than I thought it would be but the kids loved it! Brett and I got some royally awesome sunburns too, so it was a win win for everyone.
