4th of July Celebrations

We went to a Colonial Display and the kids got to see how printing presses work.
This is an exact replica in size and weight of the brass plates. Joseph Smith was an amazingly strong man to be able to carry let alone run with these plates.
Gee, this gives a whole different meaning to "Time Out!"
This basket weaver shares her art. The brown basket on the table took over 14 hours to make. She said she has taught the basketweaving merit badge to scouts -- she's a saint!

Wow, who would have thought that they would have all that cool stuff at downtown. I had no idea! That woman is amazing for having the patience to still make baskets by hand!

That printing place is cool. Hard to beleive that it's hidden in Provo. Glad you got to enjoy some history/patriotic celebrations.
