Pioneer Day

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

Happy Pioneer Day everyone!  In case you don’t know what Pioneer Day is, it is a state holiday to celebrate the pioneers who made the trek to settle here in Utah.  It is also an excuse for us to have parades and set off fireworks. IMG_9683.JPG IMG_9694.JPG

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

We were out side last night enjoying the evening when these small birds started swarming around our flowers. At least we thought they were birds. They were hovering around the flowers like humming birds, but they didn’t make any noise. So I decided to go get my camera and take come pictures. It was not […]
