Pioneer adventures

My parents' ward here in Wyoming had a primary activity to celebrate the 24th of July, the date that commemorates the pioneers entering the Salt Lake Valley. The kids enjoyed some fun activities. Like the handcart pull.

KaileeJo really enjoyed pushing the cart and Taydom didn't seem to mind riding.

They also got to make home made ice cream.

It was Delicious!

We also got to make fry bread. KaileeJo thought that her bread couldn't have enough flour on it.

Or powder sugar. She dumped the whole sifter full on top.

They also were going to have a watermelon seed spitting contest but couldn't find a watermelon with seeds in it. Over all it was a good day even though Taydom took a good spill and bit her tongue almost all the way through and KaileeJo fell in the parking lot and scraped her knee pretty good. We still came home with smiles on our faces and fun things to talk about.

On our way home from Jackson we decided to stop by Idaho Falls and feed the ducks. They kids thought it was great and can't wait to go back and do it again.

These are the ducks that enjoyed our bread.

Jackson Hole

Adam had a teaching conference in Jackson Hole Wyoming for four days so the girls and I thought that we would tag a long for the ride.

The swimming pool was fun but the girls were really whiny when ever we went so the trips were short. KaileeJo will need some type of floating devise if we plan on doing any more pool swimming even though she loved just walking around. Yes my two and a half year old can easily walk around in the three foot section of the pool.

One of the girls favorite things was to play at the park in downtown Jackson. They had some squirrel like creatures that had made tunnels throughout the park and the girls loved chasing them around.

This is the view of the Tetons from our hotel room. The room wasn't huge but it was still a fun get a way that we didn't have to pay for. Over all it was a good trip and we are glad we got to go have a fun adventure.
