Summer Fun Club 14

 If July 24 is just another day to you, you're probably not from Utah or Idaho, and/or you may not have  pioneer or Mormon heritage.  But if you are, or do, then you surely know that July 24 is Pioneer Day.

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.

So proud!

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!
