Pioneer Days held at one of the most beautiful spots on earth.
Every July 24, we celebrate the entry of the pioneers into the Salt Lake valley. It's funny, because other than the SL area, I don't think it's celebrate much. Except in central BC, where we recognize the pioneers with gusto! Really, everyone should do it. It's so much fun! I think one year we had frog races, and floating around somewhere is a photo of me and a friend kissing frogs.
Obiously we were both still single.
But I digress.
This year, there was a little handcart pull, pioneery games, and yummy food cooked in dutch ovens.
Of course I didn't get releases for everyone that I took photos of, so I'm only posting shots where people can't be recognized too much.
Except for my little whippersnappers.
And other family members! Where's Adam? He's in the pic. Look carefully!
Pull up a chair? Bickie? Beverage? I'm so glad you've stopped by. I hope you enjoy your stay. This little space celebrates the idea that the little things, the everyday things, are worth recording. It has comfortably settled itself into a blog about the everyday after I started a 365 Day photo challenge September of 2009 on Facebook. After beginning to blog, I transfered many of the photos here, where I have continued this daily challenge. My life is really not that interesting, but as I've looked for something to photograph each day, I've been able to find fun, joyful, meaningful things in the daily events that happen for all of us. It's fun keeping my eye open for little things that I never noticed were even worthy of record before. There is so much beauty out there if we keep an eye open to it.
