Me with Miss E on her real birthday.
Kim and I celebrating with Alyse the day after her birthday when she was home from Trek.
Our neighborhood had a parade for all the kids to celebrate the 24th of July which is Pioneer Day. Kaitlyn enjoyed watching the parade.
Eliza and Brianna rode in their wagon in the parade.
After the parade their was a bonce house and slide for the kids, snow cones, desserts, a clown who made balloon items for the kids. It was lots of fun!
Above is Brianna with her balloon hat.
The little girls enjoyed sparklers to celebrate Pioneer Day. Well most of them did. Brianna wasn't too sure about them at first.
Kaitlyn was fascinated by them.
Eliza just had a ball with them!
These two cuties above became Pioneers for four days as they participated in our Stakes Pioneer Trek up in Wyoming. Above and below is what they looked like before they left.
Annie and Alyse. Our girls came home hot, sweaty, so dirty, so tired, so sunburned, so blistered, but they had loved every minute of it! They gained a greater love and understanding for the Pioneers and experienced little miracles in their own lives. They said it was the hardest thing they had ever done but was also a very humbling and spiritual experience. Alyse had her birthday while on trek and said it was one she will never forget!
