Happy Pioneer Day!

We started out the day by riding our bikes downtown for the parade.

Bill & I were volunteer ham radio operators. So, we stood at the corner of South Temple and 200 East and radioed in for pooper scoopers as necessary. A glamorous job, I know, but we do get a great view of the parade and it is fun to hear the back chatter of what is going on in the parade.

Sandy enjoyed the parade, and kept clapping as the floats passed. The parade was during her morning nap, though, and so she eventually succumbed to sleep and spent the second half of the parade asleep in the bike trailer.

We went home for lunch and Sandy's afternoon nap. Then we headed to Bill's work to watch the Butlerville Parade. Here's a picture of Sandy walking as we watched the parade.

The Butlerville parade was much smaller, but all the floats threw candy (not allowed in the main parade from this morning). If I were a kid, I think I'd prefer the smaller parade with the candy.

Here's a picture of Sandy on the floor of Bill's office.
