Happy Pioneer Day & Sammy's Birthday

Did you know July 24th is Pioneer Day?  It is.  Just ask any Utahn.  (It's a state holiday) 
Or a Mormon.  (We're all about Pioneers)

Did you know it's also Sammy's birthday?  And P.B.'s?  Well, it is.

Here in Japan, we (Mormons) celebrated yesterday with a branch party at Citizen's Park off-base.

I made pizza 

and cupcakes...

The creation of the cupcakes only required 28 (3) prototypes and a tiny (huge) mess.
But I'm sure the 5 kids who ate my handcarts (I only had time to make 5 by the time I was done) appreciated them as they scarfed them down.

The main activity of the night was riding down THE HILL!  

I don't know what kind of hill it is.  
Sled Hill?  
Ski Hill?  
Break a Limb in 5 seconds or Less Hill?

Watch the movie and judge for yourself:

What is the surface the sleds on going down on so they slide so well? It looks like too much fun

I knew it was Sammy's birthday and I still refuse to calculate how old he must be now. Don't tell me, because I intentionally only skimmed your blog post because I might find out and it scares me.

It scares me so very much.
