Alpine Loop

Tom and Cheryl came to visit in July and we had so much fun spending time with them in some of the beautiful places around our house. We spent one of the days driving around the beautiful mountains just behind our house. The views were spectacular and perfect for pictures!

Norah was getting a little fussy from being in the car, so the best way to get her to smile was throwing her around, she loved it!

Our eternal family

My best friend Macie's little baby Johnny passed away on Saturday. When I heard the news my heart sank and tears rushed to my eyes. This tiny little boy was just too perfect for this world, his work on earth was finished and our loving Heavenly Father needed him back.

I am so grateful for the knowledge I have of the Plan of Salvation. So grateful for the covenants I have made in the temple allowing me to live with my family not just here on this earth for however long we may be here, but for eternity. I know these things to be true, I know that we were all placed here on this earth by our Heavenly Father to learn and to grow. I love my husband and our darling daughter more than meager words can express and I know we'll be together forever. This brings me so much joy!

Demolition Derby

I can't imagine a better way to celebrate our pioneer ancestors entering the Salt Lake Valley than with crushing metal and cotton candy. Oh, and spectacular fireworks.

Thank-you, Fairview, for letting us celebrate in style.
