We're heading to Wyoming on Monday to visit Martin's Cove and the like with our ward. We will be there for four days. I am excited for the experience even though I know I will be crying every time they tell a pioneer story. The only thing I am not looking forward to is the "tenting" as Millie calls it. I don't especially enjoy sleeping in a tent, but I'd rather sleep in a tent than NOT sleep. I'm afraid the girls will keep me up all night. Only time will tell. And no matter how bad it gets I know it will be no where near as bad as our ancestors had it!
Anyway, I am very proud of myself for sewing! I made 95% of Millie's dress (I needed a little help) and 100% of the apron. My kind mother-in-law made the pantaloons and bonnet.
We have to pack our things in buckets, so for family home evening we decorated them with random stuff I could find (I'm not a scrapbooker so our options were very limited), but it was fun.
And this photo has nothing to do with the trek but I just loved Ivy's messy face. Look at those pink lips!
And Millie has learned how to take a self portrait . . . sort of.
