Initially reluctant, we decided to attend the Stake Pioneer Day party. I'm not really into a whole bunch of crazy Mormons re-enacting the whole trek across the US in full pioneer regalia, but my boys were actually pretty convinced that it would be wonderful. They also requested to wear the full outfit worn by pioneer children. Well, to be honest, I don't really know what that outfit might look like...dingy pants with suspenders to hold them up...long-sleeved, buttoned shirts and some form of handmade hat that might keep the sun off the face? Girls are easier...long dress, apron, bonnet. Anyways, a couple hours before the event, I rushed over to goodwill and found some great plaid shirts that I cut up and made into funny pioneer hats for the boys. They were thrilled and sported them for, not only the event itself, but for days after. And, by the way, the party was great fun, interlaced with some crazy, but we all had a good time. Kudos, Torrance Stake Activity Committee.
