The big celebration

The Pioneer celebration is about to begin in our little town. Cowley Wyoming was settled by pioneers about 100 years ago.

We'll have a parade down Main Street... and lunch in the park. My favorite event is the Saturday evening talent show. Such talented roots, trunks, branches, and leaves in this town... families gather from all over to sing, play instruments... and share their talents in different ways.

There's a rodeo that lasts all afternoon. My niece is doing barrel racing this year. My nephew usually tries to stay on a bull... but generally only lasts a few seconds. Our kids lost interest after riding sheep.

At our house, we're getting ready to burn a huge pile of wood. It'll be a huge bon fire! Complete with marshmellows... maybe some hot dogs too. Pictures to follow.
