My family spent some time at Cove Fort Days this weekend.
We learned how the pioneers made soap, pottery, and cloth. We watched children play on pioneer toys and watched a film about Joseph Smith. We took a ride on a horse drawn wagon and toured the restored fort. We visited tents with handcrafted goods, ate a free lunch and listened to muscial performers.
Each time I attend I think about my ancestors who helped settle the American West with their own hands. I love learning about how they raised animals, gardens and children.
I have so much respect for their faith, resourcefulness and hard work. Cove Fort Days wouldn't happen without many willing volunteers. A big thank you to everyone who makes this event possible for me and my family.
