Handcart Days in Bountiful Utah (just north of Salt Lake City) has become a part of our Pioneer Celebration.
First up the races….
…a half marathon (for Jennifer to run-she won her division), the 5K (Henry, Becca and Emily riding in a stroller pushed by Adam was their race) and the 1K was to be run by Caroline and myself. What I didn’t know was Caroline was planning on running the race not just walking and I needed to keep up with her so I could keep an eye on her. As the race was starting Caroline turned to me and said, “Come on Grandma…You can do it!” Then “Let’s go!” Thanks to Caroline (giving me encouragement the whole way) we did finish…but Caroline beat me.
and we all got medals!
Followed by a Chuck Wagon Breakfast
And all the other fun activities rides, games, bounce houses, face painting, Daughter of Utah Pioneers making cloth dolls, fish pond…
