The girls first parade, they loved it! Luckily Trevor was their to show them the ropes, who to wave too to get candy and water. S & S liked the horses and the bands the best, Trevor liked the police formations on motorcycles, especially the cool one riding his bike like a surfboard :). At the carnival they enjoyed the fish pond, spin art, and the baseball throw- killer arm! Thanks Trevor for hanging out and helping your sisters.
Our city put on a great show for pioneer day. Breakfast in the park, Parade, City Idol, Kids area, Good food & Fireworks- fun for all ages. I was impressed with the cold drinking water stations they had throughout (hot day), and clean bathroom/wash stations set up all over. Well done, we had a good time.
I'm very thankful for the Pioneers who sacrificed so much for us. Nick got a small taste of this last month as he went on a Youth Trek trip with our church. He traveled on the trails pulling handcarts in the heat for 4 days. Tough on the kids, but they did well and it sure helped them appreciate what the pioneers went through and how truly blessed we are :)
We were happy to see Nick & Josh when we got home. They've been at scout camp for the week, the girls asked about them every day.
