In past years Papa has been involved in the local Mormon Battalion reenactors so he had all the gear to get dressed up. He let Cooper borrow a cowboy hat and I threw on a dress that Jonathan brought home from his mission to Paraguay and my hat from Williamsburg, VA as my pioneer garb. Catelyn on the other hand was able to wear a dress that my mom had made me when I was 4. She loved it and has been wearing it almost nonstop since. She calls it her "cowgirl dress". She also threw on her straw hat and we were ready to go.
I tell you, she didn't take that dress off for days!
I'll make an update soon with pictures of our adventures while at the Gold Rush Days. Stay tuned!
