Following the P Family Tradition we went to Manassa CO for the Pioneer Celebration!
At 4 am we got up and got the girls into the car and set off on the 6 hour drive!
We arrived at Uncle G's and then walked down to his truck (he'd parked across the street from the chapel) to sit and watch the Parade!
The girls were excited! Cousins always have fun together!
The theme this year was about Makebelive Characters. The floats were full of popular animated characters! Cinderella, Shrek, Mater from CARS, and lots of Nursery rhymes too.
T'ph was super excited when donkey from Shrek came and shouted to him. Of course we got a picture with him!!!
After all these fun Parade floats, we went to the park by the Demsey Museum. The girls played and the Adults split up: a few to watch the girls and a few to get burgers! It took over an hour to get burgers! Wow! The girls didn't mind playing that long. Poor Lilypad fell off the merry-go-round into the mud and ended up in Ju Ju's shorts rather than her own mud soaked pair!
It was cool in the shade, so we didn't realize how sun burnt we got!
L caught up with Grandpa B!Look at those two handsome guys!
After visiting with Grandpa and arranging a lunch for Monday we began our drive to the Mountain Cabin!
Originally Homesteaded by L's Great Grandpa T, the family has been coming and spending summer vacation time here nearly every year!
It is so beautiful up there!
I had to take some pictures!
Of course the girls had to play on the gate!
I think that is a tradition too!
