pioneer day

The San Antonio North Stake sure knows how to celebrate Pioneer day. (For those of you that don't know what Pioneer Day is, it's a celebration of the day the Mormon pioneers first arrived in the Salt Lake valley-- July 24th.) Well our ward celebrated with
Kettle corn (Oh my it was good!)
Pony Rides

Snow cones and cotton candy (the cotton candy is what is in Henry's other hand). There was also hamburgers, hot dogs, and deserts. Nothing for vegetarians unfortunately, but Henry's hot dog looked really good and tasted great too. I love what being pregnant does to me. (Yep, we're pregnant and due in January. Wahoo!)

Launching water balloons from the biggest slingshot ever. What was best is that kids ran out in the fire zone to be hit with the balloons. It was a hot day so I guess it felt nice. Can you tell how excited Henry was for his turn?

Anyway it was a great time. Henry liked the ponies and that there were so many different games going on (sack races, story telling, penny finding, face painting, and more and more) I liked sitting in the cool building and chatting with all the people that stopped by. So many wonderful people live here. And Dell liked the water balloon launching and just following Henry around exploring. It was a great day.
