Yellowstone Trip for Gabe, Nana and Papa

Heading out on our adventure!

Just having fun in Island Park

Last week we took our oldest grandson, Gabe, to Yellowstone to celebrate his 8th birthday and baptism. He was so excited to go and acted like such a gentleman during the entire trip. It was so fun to start this tradition with him. We hope to be able to take each of our grandchildren on a similar trip when they turn eight. It is so amazing to see how Gabe has grown and matured since his premature birth at 3 pounds 8 years ago. We are very proud of him!!

Gabe's Baptism

On Saturday our first grandchild, Gabe, was baptized. What a great day! He looked so dang handsome (and happy) sitting with his Papa in the chapel. All his favorite people were in attendance and both his Grandpa's took part. He is such a joy to me and I love to be around the mature young man he is becoming.


Everyone who knows me well understands my excitement for the Hill AFB Airshow and especially the Thunderbird. I have loved them since I was a little girl and was able to tour one of the planes when one of my Dad's good friend was a Thunderbird pilot. This year was no exception. I found the perfect viewing area and tagged my place early Saturday. I spent the afternoon watching and reading and enjoying the great weather. I also watched them practice on Friday and their final show on Sunday even though the weather didn't cooperate. I am already looking forward to the next airshow in 2 years.

I was able to spend a week in New York with Tom this month. We had such a great time. No matter how many times I go to "The City" I will never get bored with it. Each time I go, I find another adventure.

Tom just got his first vacation of the year since moving to New York. He was able to come home for an entire week. It was so great to see him and spend time all together. The kids all loved having their favorite uncle home and couldn't get enough of him.

First Trip To Hogle Zoo for 2009

Yesterday was our first trip to Hogle Zoo for 2009. It was also Wade's first visit to the zoo ever. It was so fun to watch his excitement. The weather was perfect, but as our luck would have it, most of the animals were napping . . .

Tate finally gets to ride the train which was, of course, his favorite part!!

Nordstrom First Visit

Today we drove to SLC to check out the new Nordstrom at Fashion Place. All I have to say is "what a beautiful store." It is twice the size of the old store and so much more roomie and inviting. I always love any Nordstrom but this one is extra nice. I found a pair of JimmyChoo shoes for $665 that I was tempted to buy - but settled for this great purse for $30 instead.
