Blog vacation...

It really wasn't a vacation just a busy busy time last week with the St. George Book Festival-photos coming later on. I also had other activities at the same time like our Daughters of Utah Pioneers group had a field trip to local historical places and then a fun picnic in perfect cooler weather.

Enjoying the park after our auto tour of historical places in town.
Getting ready for our picnic lunches and enjoying the warm sun.
As daughters of Utah pioneers we meet monthly for lessons and fun.
Open to women of all ages interested in Utah pioneer histories.
Meeting in the historic Town Square in St. George for fellowshipping. and fun.
We are surrounded by historic buildings in every direction
In the distance is the Woodbury school-one of the first schools built here.
The tabernacle built in the late 1800s still stands.
Historic houses and stores still survive to our day and have been updated.
The original Dixie Academy housed students of all
ages and served as the first college in town.

Yup! Yu! It is an area steeped in history. If I'm ever quiet when I walk through the St, George, Santa Clara, and other surrounding towns I almost hear the sounds of women beating rugs in their yards, ringing the dinner bell or calling the men in from working side by side with their sons in the fields. I have felt the stories of the people and the lives that have been lived in the area. It's comforting and uplifting.
