My kids LOVE decorating their bikes and joining in. The 1905 cottage that I’ve been working on is right on the parade route. I was thinking it would be fun to have the house open after the parade!

Come for the parade at 10 am and then the 1905 Cottage will be open right after the parade from 11 am – noon. I’d love to have you come by and see what I’ve been working on for the past year!

  9. That makes me so nostalgic for my childhood. We used to go to Utah for family reunions with my Dad’s family and the town they lived in also had a pancake breakfast, a parade, and the BEST fireworks. I miss it! Your cottage looks adorable, if I was nearby I’d love to join in on all the fun!
