June 1 in Mongolia is "Women's and Children's Day." All the children had new clothes. The streets and squares were filled with entertainments for children. The girls looked so pretty in their fancy dresses and the boys in their new shirts and pants!
Sukhbaatar Square was filled with booths of all kinds. It was fun to see families out together.
Everyone was taking pictures so I had to take this one of Clair and his sumo-partner.
June 4th was our anniversary. We got special permission to go to Terelj, a national park near Ulaanbaatar to celebrate. We went horseback riding on the short Mongolian horses. Above you can see some cows and yaks. The long hair on the yaks sways from side to side as they walk. We crossed the river several times on our ride getting our shoes wet
The theme of the Youth Conference was "Be Strong." It was very moving to hear them sing the theme song.
