I told you about my friend's Pioneer Day traditions here; this year, we got to live them.
|Hammering nails into logs conveniently provided by the recent freak storm that left many of us powerless for days. Not bitter.|
|Sawing logs. It was SO hot, humid, and buggy out there, and the kids got whiny fast. It's good to know how pathetically they fare when the going gets tough.|
|Threading a needle and sewing a button on.|
|Shaking cream into butter...and let me tell you, that was some of the softest, most delicious butter I've ever tasted!|
|Shaking cream and sugar into ice cream, handing off between partners.|
|Toddlers make the cutest pioneers.|
|Freshest soft serve this side of the Rockies!|
And of course it just wouldn't be Pioneer Day without Brigham Young's Buttermilk Doughnuts! Yippy hi-yay!
