Pioneer Day in Utah

 Yesterday was Pioneer Day in Utah.  Basically we celebrate the first settlers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Salt Lake Valley.  They went through a lot to get here, tame, and settle the "wilderness".  It is a state holiday so our family had a little get together over at my parents house.  I got to see my cute niece.  I used to be her nanny but now her mom has quit work and gets to stay home with her all day.  I like to show my niece my mom's roses and grapes.  Then we got to swing on the swings.  We had grilled hamburgers, a yummy veggie tray, and strawberry shortcake for dessert.
 Then the fireworks began.  We just watch all of the ones our neighbors do.  The picture below is from earlier in the month around the 4th of July.  Tooele High School always has a concert with fireworks after and I have a perfect vantage point from my deck.  Fireworks are so much fun to watch.
