Life is not measured by the number of

breaths we take, but by the number of

moments that take our breath away.

September 11 was my birthday, Yes, I am aging with each year that passes even though I try not to. We couldn't decide what kind of cake to make so we made German chocolate cake one with coconut pecan frosting and one with chocolate frosting. It was a very good day.

News from our Missionary

We came home from California and I found these pictures on my E-Mail. Kyle has been transferred to Veracruz He said it is very difficult there. The people are not as receptive to the gospel as they were in the small towns. He looks good skinny, but good.Keep up the great work Kyle. He is the tall blonde


July ninth Danny, Randee, Beegh, Jessica, Brian and myself all hopped a plane and flew to Sacramento California. We all went to see Wyatt, Jenny and Crew get sealed to each other in the Sacramento Temple. We had a great time there. Activities included boating on Monday, drove to San Francisco on Tuesday and went to the Temple on Wednesday. We spent a lot of time at Jenny's parents, the Thompsons. We had a barbecue every night, swam and hung out with all their kids and grand kids visiting and getting to know them better. They have a wonderful family and we couldn't have felt more welcome and at home there.Wyatt has amazing in-laws. Thanks Thompsons.

We arrived in Sacramento just in time to have breakfast. I am not sure Crew was awake yet. He loved his aunt Randee.


Monday we went to the lake to have fun. Here is Crew driving the boat and trying to keep his eye on the wakeboarder incase they fall. (remember don't drive angry)This is Jenny she is very good at wake boarding
Wyatt, not too bad for his first time trying this.Not as good as Jenny.
Then we have the pro Beegh he is really skilled.He even did a jump. I couldn't get that picture.
Randee having a great time.

Jenny put Crew in this wet suit/life jacket soon as she zipped it up he fell asleep, as you can see. Babies are crazy some times.
Crew asleep under the dash of the boat while his Papa drove.
Jessica and Brian watching. They both gave wake boarding a try but could'nt get up. So they sat back and enjoyed the fun.
Danny and I enjoying the time with our family. Beating the 114 heat in Arizona and loving the 80-90's in Sacramento.
