happy pioneer day...


it's a holiday today in the great state of utah. it's when the pioneers declared utah a state. thanks, brother brigham! read more here if you are really interested. luckily we live in a state called utah, and not deseret, as they wanted it to be originally. mostly it means anyone who works for a utah based company has the day off and those that work for an non-utah based place work. lucky for me, it's a holiday paired with the 4th of july, which i worked, so i have today off. so i'm hosting a bbq with my family. which means i really should start cleaning!

lots of fireworks tonight. we'll see how much more of the state can catch on fire!!

7 peeps have to say:
