Every four years our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has what is called the Pioneer Trek. Some parents are called to go on this but they will be parents to other children from our steak boundaries. The youth age 14 and up are highly encouraged to go on this. Coco and Dallas have both gone on one. I have never been on one and I would make an awesome Ma !
Anyway this time was E'lyses chance to experience this wonderful adventure of pushing a handcart and re-enactment some of things that happened with the Pioneer settlers. The people load on to buses and go on a trip up north somewhere. They make a 4 day journey walking, eating together, working together and growing closer to our Heavenly Father through this experience.
Coco's Mother in law, Diana, was nice enough to lone us these beautiful dresses, bonnets, aprons and bloomers for E'lyse to use this year. She had made the dresses in the past for her daughters. This is one fashion style I wish would come back I would SO wear these I think they are so feminine and pretty.

E'lyse and her cute little bloomers. This picture just makes me laugh.
It is Saturday afternoon about 2:41 and she should be calling soon to come get her from the church. Can't wait to see her and hear all about her journey.
