Temple Square @ SLC, UT

Our Utah trip began at 4 am with a drive to the airport parking and a shuttle bus over to the airport.
First thing, we made sure to eat at Cafe Rio in downtown Salt Lake before hitting up temple square. 

Bug was our photographer in front of the SLC Temple.

Bug's Baptism

I had always looked forward to the day when I would have a kid old enough to get baptized.  Bug's baptism was a perfect and spirit-filled day.  His Uncle gave a talk and his Grammy sang a song.  Daddy baptized him.  Gigi and Bear gave the opening and closing prayers and Pops and Poppi were the witnesses for his baptism and stood in the circle with Daddy and the Bishop to confirm him a member of the church.  


  It was so nice to have Daddy's family visit from Tennessee and Aunt B drive in for the day.

Independence Day

Built a hoop house to keep the pesky deer out of our garden.
 Finally put a flag up and sang the National Anthem.





 Ate a delicious picnic dinner and played a family game of football.
 Finished the night up with family fireworks.
