[Comments] (3) material girl: Since Draper was recently pronounced the 22nd best city in the USA, Susie & I deemed it apropos to participate in the Draper Days activity this weekend. Yesterday morning we took Maggie to the parade, wherein she procured gobs of candy, most of which is salt water taffy. It was nice to see parents telling their kids to leave some on the road for Maggie, since she's a little slow at the candy-nabbing.

In the evening it was off to the horse pull, an event I've never before heard of, but only only $4 instead of the $20 we would have spent on a rodeo. I don't care much for rodeos, other than the nostalgic aspect of going with my grandparents every year in Lehi, because a part of me still thinks it's a socially acceptable form of animal cruelty. But I digress. The horse pull. Apparently each team takes turn pulling various weights 20 feet and it's a slow process of elimination. It was kind of slow, but was fun for a nighttime activity. Maggie of course kept asking when it was her turn to ride the horses, and I finally took her over to pet one of the horses for a while. She's two and already wants a pony.

Throughout all of the festivities, Maggie had no accidents. She's slowly getting the hang of this potty training thing. It will be nice to not have 2 kids in diapers simultaneously.

Last night we watched the fireworks from our porch. Then it was off to bed, after a long day of doing it Draper style. I enjoy community events, like the yearly parade and egg hunts, and enjoy living in a community that does stuff like this.

Aww, that's nice. Glad they are being put to good use.

Draper is a nice spot. Very convenient too.

I understand your feelings toward Pull-ups. When we tried them with Jakob, they did not work as well. It wasn't until he was ready and he WANTED to wear the underwear. Then all of a sudden when he had an accident he knew! I still have to use the nighttime Pull-ups for him though, because he just does not wake up in the middle of the night. One step at a time, I suppose. =)
