Swiss Days!

Each year Midway, UT celebrates "Swiss Days". The settlers were from Sweden and they loved Midway because it reminded them of home. Hence the name "Midway". The whole town has a Swiss influence. You can see lots of homes with painted murals and designs. The one below is a business building.

Notice the little guys breaking their backs holding up the frame of the roof?

So Swiss Days is all about eating, shopping, and entertainment. Nathan got this huge snowcone.

Here's a sampling of some of the booths.

Of course there must be entertainment.

One of our best finds was getting to meet the author of a new book "Crystal Moon World of Grayham". He was very friendly and interested to hear what Beck thinks about the book after he reads it. He is a native Utahan.

Which booth did I head to first? It rhymes with Pecan Pie and Ice Cream. Oh heck, it was pecan pie and ice cream. And I mean a "slab" of ice cream! Yummy! Of course there were all sorts of Swiss meals... Swiss Tacos, Swiss Burgers, Kratwurst, and so on. We had a fun time!

Downtown Midway has looked so pretty this summer with the hanging pots in bloom. Well, the plants are in bloom, not the pots, but you know what I mean.

Webkinz Visit Sleepyhead

Chloe and I made this slide show one day when Spike was fast asleep. He didn't move a muscle as she placed her Webkinz, one after another, on top of him. Sorry it's a bit slow, it's the fastest I could get it to go. Enjoy!
