Getting out of dodge!

Just so all of you know that there are TWO holidays in July! Independence day, and Pioneer Day. Ok so not everyone celebrates Pioneer Day, but it is a big holiday here in Utah. Living in Utah my entire life I sometimes forget that Pioneer Day isn't a national holiday. When we were making plans for going to my father in law's ranch this weekend IN IDAHO I actually asked my husband where we were going to see fireworks there. He looked at me like I was crazy, then said "Idaho doesn't celebrate the day the pioneers came to Utah, DUH!" I had to laugh, it so Utahn of me to think that any other state would celebrate a Utah state holiday. Oh boy!

Well since my husband works for a bank and gets bankers holiday's off, we have along weekend to play. He has taken off work today and we will be driving to Idaho to play on the boat, ride horses, ride on the 4 wheeler, and anything else that may come up.(Except for watching fireworks!) I can't wait! The 4 1/2 hour car ride might not be the best because the kids broke the portable dvd player. So wish me luck! And I would like to be the first to wish all of you a Happy Pioneer Day!
