I went to Orem's Summerfest with some friends the other day. Even though it rained, we had a good time. Lots of booths to look at, good food and a cool old car show.

I remember as a little kid (when we lived in Orem) going to the Summerfest. Sometimes we went to the carnival and we always went to the parade. It's such a big deal! Everyone goes down to Center Street the night before and puts out blankets and lawn chairs to save a spot for the parade. I remember one year at the carnival my brother, Bob, won a frog at one of the games and we were so scared to take him home. Our parents aren't really animals-in-the-house kind of people. :) But, whether they wanted to be or not, they were good sports and the frog stayed. That is, until my brother got sick of him and flushed him down the toilet.
