Pioneer Day

Pioneer Day this year was sweet and casual.  Aimee, her mom Cherie, and her two darling daughters spent the day with us.  We started out with a walk up the nature trail to feed the greedy seagulls - ah - I mean the fish.  Norah had to carry her quarter for the fish food in her shoe, as she had no pockets.  The water was so lovely that both girls just had to put their feet in for a few minutes.

Then we went to West Yellowstone for lunch at KIWIs and some shopping.  KIWIs is not your regular burger joint.  They specialize in Kiwi food, or food that New Zealanders eat.  We had burgers with pickled beets and fried eggs, grilled cheese and pineapple sandwiches, and chips (large French fries) sprinkled with malt vinegar.  YUM...  They were fresh out of meat pies or Brian would have tried one for sure.  

Then it was off to the candy store to fill our baggies with treats.  Can you see all my black licorice???

After checking out the nativity sets at the IMAX theater, we headed back to the Subway to see Sarah and buy some cookies.  Then to the cabin for cookies and a rest before they headed home.  So glad they came!  A good time was had by all.
