Pioneer Day

Yesterday was Pioneer Day in Utah. It's pretty much as big as 4th of July. To celebrate the pioneers we went up to Salt Lake and watched the huge parade which was very fun. I couldn't believe how many people were there! Afterward, we met up with Megan, Corey and Issac Dabb at "This is the Place" park. This is where Brigham Young told the pioneers where they would be settling (for good) and said, "This is the place." How ironic. We had so much fun with the Dabb's. Issac just loved everything about the park. Although it was very hot, we were able to enjoy ourselves. We went in general stores, ate at the only restaurant, watched parades, took a train ride around the whole park, and listened to a band. Of course I mainly took pictures of Issac. Just getting practice for when I will be a mom!

When Josh and I got back home, we decided to go over to Seven Peaks to cool off. We got there at 6:00 and left at 7:00...oh the joys of a season pass and living next door! Later that night, we went and saw Iron Man 2. I feel right asleep (shock) and woke up about half-way through. From what I saw, I have to admit, was entertaining. We came home to a house full of girls. Josh's cousins, Jill and Jen, were staying the night and Meg (Josh's sister) was also here and spent the night as well. They are all leaving for the dude ranch today. I am so sad that we can't go. If you have not heard yet, I am having surgery this coming Friday to, basically, re-route my pacemaker wires. Josh and I are both nervous, that is normal, but it should be totally fine. I have to spend the night to make sure everything is working well. I will keep everyone informed on how I am doing post-surgery. Back to the post though: Pioneer day was so busy and so fun! We are glad to have great friends to share holidays with. We are always looking for new things to do...any suggestions?
