See was a pioneer!

I'm so proud of my girls. They returned from a pioneer trek and I feel honored that See would participate in this as well. This was a 3 day commemoration honoring those who walked more than 2000 miles while being persecuted for their religion and their only belongings fit into a handcart which they pulled themselves. Here is a little bit about the story of the pioneers who first came to Utah. http://www.lds.org/gospellibrary/pioneer/01_Convert_Immigrants.html The girls were able to experience a small part of what it was like to pull the handcarts, sleep in tents and eat pioneer food although they only walked a few miles each day, had nice safe tents and had much more food than the pioneers were able to eat. It was still hard work for the modern day reenactment and it will be something they remember forever.
