Familes are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts

Caleb's Blessing

On September 13th Caleb was blessed by his daddy in their Ward. Hasn't he grown? He is a little cutey, and all boy.
Kyle and Tiffany's family is looking good - and growing!

We went on a vacation!

The first part of September we (David, me, and Todd) traveled to upstate Washington and Vancouver Island, Canada for a fun vacation. Last January I set a News Years resolution to visit somewhere I had never been this year. We picked a good place. Maybe next year I will set a goal to visit TWO places I have never been. (Don't tell David)

Isn't Todd quite the good looking man?

Off to the North country

Our vacation took us to Olympic National Park where we saw the beautiful Olympic Mountains, a rain forest, and the ocean. Quite a variety huh?
We also drove through Forks
and Port Angeles, WA and didn't understand the "Twilight Festival" they were advertising until we
drove into la Push on the Quileute Indian Reservation. There we saw a sign stating "no vampires past this point". Those who have read Twilight will understand. At left is the ferry we took to Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
In the city of Victoria on Vancouver Island we visited Chinatown (at Todd's urging). It was quite interesting and Todd loved speaking to the people. But He couldn't find the sweet winter melon tea he wanted.
We spent half a day at The Butchart Gardens and I brought home several packets of seeds. It was beautiful

In Seattle we went to the Space Needle and Pike's Place Market. I came home with a new purse.
We ended our vacation with a session at the Seattle Washington temple in the morning before we boarded the plane. It was a great vacation!
