Happy Pioneer Day!

Today is a special day here in Utah. Most businesses close up and the streets are closed off for parades and festivals!! Pioneer day is a day we celebrate the early pioneers traveling from Nauvoo, IL entering into the Great Salt Lake Valley. The endured many harsh conditions and many lost their loved ones along the way.

Here you can see the boys waving at the float with the missionaries!
It apppears Porter and Hutch here have their eyes focused on some cute Hula dancers!!!

Here are some Polynesian boys demonstrated the Houka.

And this is what Cooper thought of the parade!

You guys have been so busy! I can't believe that you already moved. You need to come down and go to dinner and catch us all up on what you have been up too. Cooper looks so cute with his new hair cut!
