Our whole family was invited to a 24th of July celebration at Timber Moose Lodge in Heber, Utah. We were promised a pioneer feast as long as we brought along a couple of side dishes. The bald kid has potato salad in one hand and fruit salad in the other. Hmmm…did pioneers eat any of those things? Who knows?
All I do know it that Mr. Smarty Pants got to the top of the hill long before I did because…well, LOOK at that thing! Oh, and you’re seeing it from half way up. I did make it…slow but steady. Be proud of me.
The view was amazing from the top, so I whine and whine, but it was worth it. :}
We made our way through the grounds…
and when we got inside…who did we see?
April’s Jacob~and we didn’t even know they were coming. Pretty dang fun!
We ate our pioneer beef stew and corn on the cob and watermelon out on the patio…
and came inside to finish up and have some apple pie. Yummo.
Then we sat around a while looking cool…
and tying licorice ropes.
We did however, run into a pioneer or two.
Then back outside for the real reason we came….
This is blurry Jacob winning the sack race. That guy was moving like he stole something. He beat the livin’ daylights out of the whole pack.
Next was the Pioneer Stick Pull. Very, very manly game.
Pretty sure the bald kid has some great big muscles and really long legs.
Which means…he won.
And lastly, Jacob pushed the Bald Kid in the tire swing which may not sound like much. But what you don’t see is that it swings waaaaay out over the edge of the mountain and the very idea would make a normal person sick…positively sick.
Hence, Jacob and the Bald Kid were the only ones who came close to it because they are not now and have never been exactly normal.
ANYway, we had tons of fun with the whole adventure.
The boys won everything and the rest of us watched and clapped…
like good pioneers should.
