Happy Pioneer Day Utah!
Today we celebrate our brave, amazing, hardcore, and courageous
Mormon pioneer heritage who founded Utah. Pioneer Day (or the 24th of July)
is an observed holiday here in Utah.
Parades,family, friends, parities, BB-Q's, and lots more
fireworks make up the bulk of the day.
Our family celebrates the day by reflecting on those in our
ancestry who have showed amazing perseverance through trials and hardship.
The Little Nies and cousins dress up in pioneer garb
and play old fashioned pioneer games.
Today the kids decided to dress up as Army heroes-
which really doesn't have anything do with pioneers.
I don't know how much longer Claire will play dress-up and pretend,
so I am savoring every last minute!
