If you are lucky enough to live in the great state Utah-you are celebrating our state holiday today----Pioneer Day! The 24 th of July is celebrated almost the same as the 4th of July: Parades, BBQ, Fireworks, Family and Friends. We remember our pioneer heritage, the pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on this day in 1847! What brave wonderful men, women and children who crossed the plains facing harsh weather, horrible conditions and unfamiliar territory. We honor them and remember them this day- we are grateful for their strength, perseverance, hard work, faith and dedication that brought them here. We are blessed to live in this great state and especially here along the beautiful Wasatch Front!
Love, The Tipsy Girls

I admire those pioneers so much, I could never have done it. I am so thankful to them.
