Pioneer Day Celebration

We had a fantastic Pioneer Day Celebration for our stake this year.  We started out by dressing up as Pioneers and taking pictures with a handcart.  Jeremy did not feel like getting in on the dress up action, but Kirsten and Katie were thrilled!
There were all kinds of fun activites for the kids to do like Pioneer songs and stories by the campfire 
 Playing Marbles with Grandma and Grandpa
 Three Legged Races
Stick Pulling 
 And of course walking on stilts


 Sorry, I was not willing to put my life in peril by suspending my body in the air on two wooden poles.
Our favorite was watching Grandma and Grandpa square dance together.  It was really fun, there was a caller and everything.  So fun!
 The Kirsten was able to do some square dancing with Grandpa

We had such a great time spending time with our friends and family celebrating our heritage.
