Onion Days 2016

Golden Onion Days.....So many memories on repeat....As I sorted through the pictures from Monday, I realized that this post will look suspiciously like my Onion Days posts from the last several years. Good thing we have little kids who keep changing so we can at least tell if the pictures are current. I have so many great memories of celebrating Labor Day in Payson at Onion Days - loving the fireworks as a kids, great times at the carnival in high school, taking college friends to our "small town celebration" and now watching my kids enjoy the celebration with extended family.  As we headed home Monday afternoon, Tim and I agreed that this had been one of our favorite years yet!

If you asked Luke what his favorite part of Onion Days was, he would definitely tell you it was the night before when Gavin slept at our house. He was so excited to have a sleep over.  Of course everyone woke up extra early - they somehow sensed the excitement and wanted to get some playtime in before leaving for the day.

My parade shots aren't so great this year.  I was mostly content to sit and watch and enjoy having a shady spot.  Ruby was excited to wave to the princess and all of the kids were thrilled with any entrance that threw candy.  Leonda kept it interesting by throwing candy from back where she was sitting - the kids never seemed to realize it was coming from the crowd and were just as anxious to scoop it up.
Luke was so happy to get sprayed with water by a float.

Ada loves to hear us cheer when she comes by with her clogging team.
Who could resist giving her their drink?

We relaxed for awhile in the park and ordered Fat Jacks Pizza for lunch.  The little girls thought the pizza was fine....mostly just a method to get more ranch.

The littles were so excited when they saw the carnival - I didn't have the heart to turn down their pleas for a few rides.  Watching their faces and total enjoyment made the money spent the best ever.
