Pioneer Day

Hello Dear Reader,
By the time Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) received their calling from the First Presidency it was almost Pioneer Day. That year we celebrated in a special way with Aunt Deon, Uncle Vic, and their children. Early on the morning of the 24th we drove to Salt Lake City for the Days of 47 parade. If I remember correctly we met Aunt Deon's family there. It was a great parade and we enjoyed the company very much.

After the parade we all drove to Heber City to swim at the Homestead where the pool was filled with warm spring water. It was a wonderful day. I can't recall all the details but I will always remeber the warm, happy feeling I had as we celebrated with our cousins and Aunt and Uncle. It seems like we laughed a lot.

In the afternoon when the fun had all been had we posed for a family photograph. Because the weather had been so hot Grandpa had decided to have his hair cut short. But after he saw his photograph he remarked, "Well look at that, I look like Mitzi the Pinhead." He decided he would never get his hair cut like that again.
