Apple Days

Every summer and fall in Cache Valley, each smaller city has a clebration to remember and highlight its heritage. The celebrations range from trout and berry days, to sauerkraut days, to black and white days. Our town - River Heights - celebrates Apple Days because there is a big apple orchard on the east end that I'm sure is why River Heights exists.

One of the events of Apple Days is a SMALL parade through town - and I mean small! This year our primary invited all the kids to come ride their bikes in the parade. The kids felt so special to be part of the parade. But Emily wondered why we didn't bring any candy to throw to the people watching, and Josh kept saying that he wanted to ride on the sidewalk because he didn't want to get run over!

All in all, it was a fun thing to do. I walked/ran along with them because I knew Josh would need some encouragement to keep going. I really enjoy living in a smaller town. You really get to know the people on such a closer level. It was so fun to see people we knew from our ward/stake and school. They were all so excited to see all the primary kids and waved and cheered as we went by. It was an enjoyable experience, even though it was cold and rainy!
