What A Way To Spend Our Pioneer Day!

With plans for a day on the lake and spending time with the family, we ended up with rain, rain, rain! We woke up at 7:00 am to avoid the boating crowd at Sand Hollow Reservoir. Pulling up to the lake, there were gray skies, rain, thunder and lightening, and absolutely no other boats. Our family is the kind that believes everything will work out in our favor, so we decided to wait it out. It only seemed to get worse. Our day on the lake ended up being a total of one hour before we headed home. 

Luckily, we did still get to spend time with the family, MOPPING UP THE FLOODED WAREHOUSE! After a few hours of hanging out at home, Diane called saying, "We have a flood in the Warehouse!" You've never seen a group of people move so quickly. We grabbed mops, towels, and buckets and hurried as fast as we could to get to the Warehouse. 

There were 12 of us, hauling fabric, totes of quilts and quilt kits towards dry ground. With all our hard work, we managed to save all our products! Living in the hottest place in Utah, we never expected to get flooded, but it happened! We now know to always expect the unexpected!

Check out some pictures from our flooding adventure today! We will still have an amazing day together as a family, with a barbecue and watching fireworks on our favorite "Webb Hill." We can't wait! At least this is going to be a Pioneer Day we will never forget!


  1. My husband and I took the top off the corvette and were heading up to the mountains. We didn't make it 10 miles before we had to pull over and put the top back on!! Good thing we brought it. I am in Draper. Have a good one. Ann xoxo

  2. Oh my gosh!!! I'm so sorry about the warehouse being flooded!!! I'm glad things were able to be saved, but what a lot of work that must have been - I've seen how huge it is in there!!! :/ That's too bad your boating plans were ruined, but hopefully the day turned out ok and some great memories were made!!! :)

  3. Wow. Thank God for family. It was meant to be. A memorable Pioneer day with family and a good outcome.
