Pioneer Quote ~ Thoughts Over Pioneer Day Weekend

They gave of their way of life, their homes, and families in order to have the Freedom to live according to their beliefs, and there is something about Sacrifice like that which can soften the hardest heart.

Old fashioned games

Well here we go. I am planning this birthday party that I initially intended to be easy with pizza and a jump house. But to my great delight, we decided to go another direction and we are doing this picnic party with some homemade, old fashioned yard games, picnic blankets, and a picnic dinner. And it will be GIRLY!   HOORAY for girly! So get ready!  This next month will be pretty party focused and today I am going to share two projects I have done so far.
