My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

It's a parade, hooray!

Spanish Fork Parade 7/24/2010

Yesterday I took the kids down to Spanish Fork bright and early to be part of the float for FSA. FSA or Families Supporting Adoption is an organization of adoptive parents, birth mothers, and adoptees that, well, support adoption. They are a sister group to LDSFS, and all of our couples are members. So basically, it is a large group of mostly our clients. They provide our adoption training for our couples, and also plan different community events to raise adoption awareness. One is the birth mother's day celebration every year, and then participating in various parades.

When I told Carly that we were going to be in a parade, she was very excited. We spent some time practicing our waving; even Wes practiced, which was great because he was an awesome waver on the float. But Carly can't say 'parade.' Either that or she continually misunderstands me. Instead, we were going to be in a "hooray!" All morning long, "Daddy, I'm going to be in a hooray!" The parade was fun, it was great seeing some of my clients outside of dark skirts and nylons, and the kids had a good time.
