Sooo today is my day to blog. YEE-HAW! I thought it only appropriate to blog about Pioneer Day! Here in the wonderful state of Utah is Pioneer Day! It is an official holiday that celebrates the Mormon pioneers [am I getting this jargon right? :/] entering into the Salt Lake Valley back in the mid 1800's and settling down! How am I going to spend this wonderful holiday? By going slip n' sliding of course!
How is Allison going to spend it? hahaha lol like this! Riding around on a horse with her husband Kenn in Cokeville Wyoming! lol
But in all seriousness... Utah having a holiday to celebrate the pioneers who trekked hundreds of miles in wagons and handcarts is pretty neat! Life as a pioneer in the 1800's has always fascinated me...One of my very favorite authors is Laura Ingalls Wilder! I have read her little house series more than ten times. Here is her most famous book:
Life wasn't always easy though... I would say the majority of life on the prairie was hard. Take this photo for instance... it depicts the hardship of that time period so well...
