Cove Fort Days

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.

You are a pioneer in your own right mom. Your faith and prayers have made things better for coming generations. You honor your heritage and have created a renewed and lasting legacy. This legacy will extend both directions into the eternities. There are, and will yet be countless many, proud to call you daughter, sister and mother. God bless you mother! Keep writing!
