Pioneer Day Fun

It's that time of year again! Last year we were shocked at the turn out for our Stake Pioneer day celebration, I hadn't planned on taking video but I couldn't resist when I saw old-fashioned clothes and a pie eating contest! 

We missed the parade last year, so I am super excited to be a part of it this time around. Especially because this year's parade will involve a Guinness Book of World Records attempt! We will be trying for the most red wagons in a single parade! I don't want to spoil it, but Henry's wagon is going to be ADORABLE! Look for a future post with video.

Never heard of Pioneer Day? Well , in sum, it's an official holiday in Utah celebrating the entrance of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley. It is also held as a special holiday by Latter-Day Saints as a celebration of their religious heritage. Basically it involves food, fireworks, and fun. Oh and occasionally Pioneer Clothes which is awesome!!
