Audio Armada

With your new gig Josh, are these going to be worth a lot more?

Looks like Audio Armada is playing in Salt Lake this summer. The music never dies.

Good luck Matt

Landon, Mason, Izzy, Lydia, Jacob and Quinn looked so cute the day Matt was called to be a counselor in his ward's bishopric. Grandma forgot to get a pic of Matt, only the grandkiddos!

Cousins celebrating together Jacob's 4th birthday.

Jake had fun birthday party with lots of cute little friends.

Utah in April

Polly will be thrilled that I put this pic on my blog. Happy Birthday Polly.
It was nice to get together with my four sisters to celebrate Polly's birthday.
Bob, Cameron and Jack had fun playing HORSE.
It was great that Josh was in SLC when we were there and we could have time together, but it was much too short.
Stephanie, Josh and Melisa were glad to have time together.

Jack was baptized.

Seeing Jack baptized was joyful for Grandma and Grandpa.
Mason, Landon and Cameron love being together and have so much fun.
Chris, Jack and Bob looking good.
At Jack's baptism, Melissa directed a children's choir while Kaitlyn accompanied on her Violin. It was perfect.
Both Lydia and Jack get to be baptized this year.
Having great grandparents come to Jack's baptism made it extra special.

One night when Lydia was spending the night she went to a rock star party first and this is how she came back!
We are proud of Landon for being selected to be apart of the district choir. They did an outstanding job and put on a wonderful program.

Snowshoeing @ Snoqualmie Pass

On Saturday we had an adventure at Snoqualmie Pass
Snowshoeing with Landon and Mason
A first for everyone
Mason at the taril head
Landon at the trail head
So far so good

We made it
Snowshoeing was a lot of fun and you stay
really warm because it is real exercise
Tail end in sight. Landon and Mason want to try
the half day hike now.

With all the rain we stopped at
Snoqualmie Falls to see how it was doing.
Very impressive!

We went to Yellowstone

Beth and Barry Stratton are wonderful friends who invited us to stay at their Groberg Family cabin in Macks Inn just outside of West Yellowstone this Sept. The four of us had a great time together exploring Yellowstone, mostly by bike, hiking and eating and playing games each night.
Yellowstone is a treasure - we had such a great time there.
We hiked up a hill and watched Old Faithful from above - it was an amazing site.
We loved the grand canyon of Yellowstone with it's spectacular water falls.

Even though we did alot of biking, where we could have met a live bear, we only saw these bear claw marks on a tree and avoided becoming bear food.
We found Yellowstone to be a spectacular, beautiful adventure with great friends.
