A lot of people obviously put a lot of time and creativity into this year’s Pioneer Day celebration at church! We had such a fun time, and we didn’t even get to see half of what was going on!
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast of pancakes, sausage, and fruit, and then, of course, the only thing the children were interested in for the first half hour or so was the inflatable obstacle course!
Avery was a superstar and repeatedly tackled the whole thing by herself! Oliver wanted to go too, but was pretty easily diverted with a lollipop.
Brogan had a blast too!
Avery got caught in the middle of the missionaries attempt, which the inflatable barely survived, and Avery loved it!
After the inflatable fun, Avery decided to make a beehive. She didn’t really want to get any glue on her hands though, so she made Sister Arner do most of the string work!! But she still was pretty pleased with the result!
Then she hopped on over to the cute little Millinery Shop and made a cute necklace for herself.
Meanwhile, Brogan discovered the chickens, and Oh My! He was a happy boy!
Avery was fascinated with the chickens too..
…as was Oliver!!
This milking cow was so funny, but so fun! Avery figured out how to get some “milk” out of it, and enjoyed that!
Brogan enjoyed trying his hand at milking, while Oliver impatiently awaited his turn.
I’m not sure whether he managed to get any water out or not, but he happily sat there and tried for several minutes!
Brogan went gold panning, but was far more interested in playing with the sand and water, so whenever he found a chunk of “gold”, he just tossed it back into the water!
Avery refused to leave until Daddy had held a chicken!!
Thanks to everyone who put so much effort into the event – it was an absolute blast, and I wish I’d had a chance to see everything!
