The Best Things In Life

The best things in life are of course not things. The wisdom in this statement has been underscored in our lives the past several months. Steve has returned to work which is a good thing....however we were able to spend time with family this month which was a great thing! Jennifer and her family stopped in Utah on their way to Ohio, where Gary will be doing a fellowship in pediatric radiology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. We were able to enjoy their company for a few short days. Audrey and Tanner stayed on for several weeks visiting with family and we were lucky enough to spend time with them and LOVED every moment!

We were able attend a Real Soccer game - Ethan especially loved this outing.

Lauren sporting her new do - she donated her beautiful hair to Locks of Love in honor of Grandpa Steve and her Aunt Shannon.

Cooper, Annie, Cannon & Ethan. We were lucky enough to spend a Sunday evening with the Smiths, Hills, Petersens and the Halvs.

Audrey, G.Lynn and Tanner
We rode in the Antelope by Moonlight ride - missed Steve - but Audrey and Tanner were great fun. The brine flies were in fine form this year!

In Ogden checking out the horses they have downtown.

Monday evening at Temple Square

Park City - on the lift to ride the Alpine Slide

Snow cones!

If we could not locate Audrey all we had to do was to check one of the bookshelves and she would be there browsing looking for a good read.

Audrey turned 16 on their last day here in Utah. We went to dinner at Tepanyaki. Loved the food and the company. Happy Birthday Audrey and thanks for sharing it with us!

What a wonderful opportunity to bond with the grandkids! Being here in Prague, we miss the family get-togethers most.
