Day 315

For those of you unfamiliar with Utah History, the 24th of July, 1847, Brigham Young and the Saints (the Mormon Pioneers) entered the Salt Lake Valley.  So the holiday (complete with a big old day off work) is a pretty big deal.  Lucky for us Fireworks vendors leave their stands up through the month of July...or as my friend Mark Saal say's "Twenty-one days of perilous patriotism."  So tonight I went to my brother's house and took pics of the celebration.  This is Taylor dancing with her sparklers.

I so miss this day off! I had to go to school and take a final today! Which by the way I passed! Anyway, happy pioneer day! It is a great holiday!
