This year for New Year's, we decided to do our own party. First, me, Quint, and Carson went down to Town Square in St. George for they're 10th year anniversary of "First Night". This is a big celebration that the city puts on. It starts at 7pm and goes till midnight. They had entertainment for everyone of all ages. Blow up bounce houses, mechanical swings, arts and crafts for the young kids. "Dance Dance Revolution," "Rock Band," and karaoke competitions for the teenagers and up. A car show, a magician, a music concert, and more...for everyone. They also put out huge metal garbage cans all over the place with open fires inside so people can stand around them for warmth. (Yes it was a cold night! Probably between 25-35 degrees) We just put Carson in the stroller and walked around for about an hour checking everything out. Carson just loved seeing everything going on!
Then we left and went back to our house to meet our friends from our old ward, Luke and Kristelle Wilkins. We turned up the music, played pool, and ate. Then we broke out our new game called, "Would You Rather?" For anyone who hasn't heard of this game...it's hilarious and a lot of fun! We played games all the way till midnight. Then our friends left but Quint and I were still wide awake so we played games again till after 1am. We had a great time and love getting together with family and friends to celebrate the holidays!
