Then the tents started coming up on Tuesday, and the rides arrived on huge trucks and trailers.
By Wednesday the rides were all coming up.
We were sick mid week, and had meant to go to Summer Fest Thursday, but we were still not up to walking around in the sun and heat.
So, by Friday, Mirah was SO excited. I was working on some cleaning Mirah came down and asked, “Mama, why do we celebrate Summer Fest?” Which made me laugh. I explained that it was Orem’s time to celebrate summer. We talked about how all of the communities in the area do something or another during the summer. Pleasant Grove, Strawberry days. Spanish Fork, Fiesta Days. Provo, Freedom Fest. Cashe Valley does a Trout and Berry days. And we in little Orem, do Summer Fest.
She said, “okay mama,” then walked away.
“The Strawberry ride”
Love these guys and the Orem Summer Fest.
