In Utah, July 24th is Pioneer Day, or "Pie 'n Beer" Day for the heathens. It's a day that Utahns celebrate the pioneers' arrival into Utah with fireworks, parades, and a day off of work. We spent the morning on a hike in Albion Basin to check out the wildflowers and Secret Lake. Lucia (who is normally quite a complainer anytime walking is involved) declared it the "best day ever." She was smiling and skipping and such a joy. It was really nice. Sophie mostly rode in the backpack, and she seemed to enjoy the squirrels the most.
