Pioneer Day Activities

Today is Pioneer Day. 161 years since the Pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley. Well here in Powell, WY, they have the Park County Fair the same week as Pioneer Day, so what better way to celebrate than me and Lacey taking or lunch break from the hospital and run over to the county fair to eat a corn dog and hve a sasparilla. OK... maybe that isn't a traditional Pioneer Day thing to do, but the corn dogs were great!

After work I went back to the Fair by myself to have some good food and watch the mini-bull riding. Kids riding bulls. How fun is that? I saw a lot of peole I knew and watched the bull riding with the Coguills.

The best part of the Fair for me is the food. Tonight I had an Italian sausage sandwich, a black cherry soda, corn dog, funnel cake and dippin dots. You can only get this food one time a year at the Fair so I might as well make the most of it.

So that is how I spent my Pioneer Day today (besides working). I hope you all had a great day too.

I spent Pioneer Day traveling the freeways of WY. Our stake just finished a 3 day trek at Martin's Cove. Half of our group had a 7 hour school bus ride and half had a 10 hour school bus ride. Martin's Cove was great but the bus ride was the trial of our faith.
