They came to the Utah territories, (a desert then), seeking a place where they could practice their religion without being persecuted. Many, many of them died and the hardships were tremendous. So thank you pioneers. We honor you.

Most of it was hand embroidered, some had tatted or crocheted edgings. There were four or five of those old card tablecloths with matching napkins. I remember my grandma having a few sets used only when her friends came over to play canasta.
I Love Lucy would've loved this apron...
I found a package with a linen piece in it from Hawaii. The post mark was 1942 and there was a stamp on it that said Passed by Army Censor. I wonder if this was from a husband or boyfriend. The woman never had any children, could he have been killed during WWII?

On July 3rd is the mommy's birthday. She wanted to go to the lake, so we did...
Can you tell the mommy was a ballerina? Look at her graceful foot!
On the 4th we started with a big parade...
At home we had a little parade of our own... That evening we had a Bar B Que with family and friends and then the mister, and the son, and the son in laws had a great time with the fireworks...
And the kids had fun with the sparklers...
