Saturday fun

We decided to go up to Midway on Saturday. They were having there Swiss Days Christmas. It was free and they had tons of gingerbread houses to look at, boutiques, an interfaith nativity (which was done beautifully), and lots of goodies. The nativities were set up in a local ward house and it may be the most beautiful ward house I have ever seen..REALLY!

Owen is getting sick of pictures the older he gets! Ella was a lost cause!

The best part of the whole day came when we were actually leaving to go get lunch. I spotted this little buggy hooked up to a horse parked outside this little coffee shop. I asked Blake to go inside and ask how much for a ride around town. The gentleman inside said "we are just taking donations." So before we knew it we were on this great buggy ride. It was awesome.

This was the horse who pulled us. Isn't he just beautiful.

This was the buggy driver. His name is Dave "Skinner" Collins. Isn't he great. He is one of those men who knows a million facts about EVERYTHING. He grew up in Canada and was in the circus for a while, helped construct buggies for the Amish in Pennsylvania, and worked in Park City before ending up in Midway..he has lots of stories. We loved him.

This is the buggy. It was an Amish one he helped build.

This is the smile I got from Blake after we found out our driver was Canadian!
