Over Memorial Weekend we went camping with my family at Hobble Creek in Springville. We had a great time and it was fun to get to spend some time with my family. We had lots to eat, great weather and many good laughs. We love to be in the outdoors and be able to enjoy all the beautiful surroundings God created for us. The kids played from the time they got up until late at night. The guys all enjoyed and afternoon of golf on the beautiful Hobble Creek golf course. We played games, talked, played at the play ground, enjoyed smores around the campfire and made many more wonderful memories. A few had to work and missed having them with us but hope they can join us next time around. Here are a few fun pictures of our outing.

Spencer & Jessie's Wedding

On May 4th we had the wonderful privilege of attending my nephew Spencer's wedding in the Bountiful Temple. It was a wonderful day and so happy for the happy couple. Mark and I were married in the Bountiful Almost 14 years ago so it was so great to return and witness another sealing there. It was truly special for us as they were sealed in the same sealing room as we were. Jess and Spencer met while attending BYU Hawaii and sent there courtship on the beautiful island of Oahu. We are so happy to have Jess join our family. She is so good for Spencer and we are so proud of both of them and their choice to be married in the House of the Lord.
Later that night we attended the reception held at my sister ward building. I must say that my sister, Annette did a beautiful job decorating. It was so beautiful and she transformed a cultural hall into a magical place. The reception was a lot of fun and many came in their honor. Jess's family all came from Washington, North Carolina and here in Utah. It was fun getting to know them.
