Pioneer Days

Last week we took the girls to a Idaho Falls Chukars baseball game. They are the equivalent to the Spokane Indians. The girls enjoyed the food more than anything and were ready to leave by the bottom of the fifth inning. (So was I) I do have to say that it wasn't as fun as going to the Indians or the Mariners but it was good to do something new.

For Pioneer Days they do a big parade and activities at the fair grounds. WE braved the heat and had a great time. Everything had to do with pioneers and cost us nothing. Stakes and wards volunteered their talents and games and food. They had free hotdogs, snowcones and watermelon. The girls visited the petting zoo, rode on a horse drawn buggy, played an indian drum, watched the bareback horse race, and got to ride horses. We saw lots of friends. Even some from Coeurd'Alene. It's so nice to be in such a positive atmosphere.

At the parade with all our neighbors

After a very hot day at the fairgrounds Jappy made a slip n slide for the kids. They Had a BLAST! Jappy is the biggest kid of all. He's still sore from his three hours of playing. It didin't take long for the neighbor kids to get in on the action

What a fun dad to build a slip n slide! And such cute girls! I wish we lived somewhere where they celebrated pioneer day!
