Once on this Island

Samantha did a great job in the Junior High play "Once on this Island". She played the goddess of love and sang a solo. She did great and she loved it!

KayDee got glasses just a few weeks ago and she looks great! She was having trouble reading clocks and of course seeing far away. We knew it was time to see the doctor and she needed glasses. When she first wore them, she said "I can see the snow on top of the mountains!" We thought for sure she would pick pink or purple but she picked out this blue pair and they look great!

Washington DC with the Farm Bureau

We had an amazing opportunity to go with the Young Farmers and Ranchers of the Utah Farm Bureau to Washington DC for five days. While there, we visited many memorials, historical sites and museums. We were able to visit with our state congressmen and senators directly and talk about our concerns and they told us what they were doing about it. We learned a lot and are so grateful we were able to go. We appreciate all those who supported us while on our trip!

Arlington Cementery where the YF&R did a wreath ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This was a really touching experience and made us deeply appreciate those who fight for freedom.
 The White House at night. It looks a little smaller than I thought it'd be.
 Abraham Lincoln Memorial
 Korean War Memorial
 The pew George Washington's family rented at Christ's Church
 Mount Vernon. We loved visiting the home of George Washington. I didn't know he wanted to be a farmer.
 Washington's Grave
 Holocaust Museum. This is an amazing but sad museum.
 Gettysburg. We were able to drive through but the snow canceled our tours. We'd love to go back and see it!
 The gun that was used to kill Abraham Lincoln
 Ford's Theater where Lincoln was shot
 The room Lincoln died

 The rooftop of the Farm Bureau offices in DC
 Smithsonian Aero Space Museum
 The Prime Minister of Israel walked right past us on our tour of The Capitol building. We were next to the whisper spot.

Kevin's Annual 29th

Another Birthday but holding 29. Kevin is so great and we appreciate all his hard work to support our family. He has been busy working on the farm and fixing trucks. He tries hard to make it to the kids activities and keeps track of us and keeps our house in order. He is a great husband and father and we are glad we have him!

I coached Derrick's basketball team this year. It was pretty crazy but we had a great time. We were able to work on different skills and put them into action during the game. I really think they did awesome!
