Picnic Time with Carlsons

Carla Carlson called last week and invited Ron and me on a picnic. We went down to the new park in Eagle and enjoyed the afternoon together. They are such precious, dear friends.

The Corner--2008

Matt LaButti (one of DAvid's marketeers) came to town last week and did some pruning. We love it!

DFG Family at Newport Beach

Todd Comes for 30th Class Reunion

This is Todd some 30 years ago..
Todd worked all day for Source One and then picked Fred up. He said the Lyons home looked the same as ever. That is Todd, Clint Harmon and Fred Lyons. Fred has the Lyons diabetes.

On Saturday evening the Group from Seminary Met together. Can you believe that Todd took two good pictures in a row? In fact, he looks plain handsome.

Reed Arrives in New York

Reed wrote a long letter with lots of details. He is assigned to Elder Xie, who is from China and is fluent in both English and Mandarin. As Reed writes "I was amazed at his determination to find people." We smiled when we read that by the time Reed struggles with the introduction to people, they have already told him they are not interested.

He helped teach an English class. He wanted to congratulate the class on how well they were learning English and when he said it in what he thought was good Mandarin, they laughed and clapped.

Sunday Dinner at the Hickories

John was in town with his friend Sarah Lacey to attend a mission farewell. They also visited Cascade for some water fun.
Jenn made the strawberry salad. Laurie fixed two kinds of chicken, some corn on the cob and a special hit--fresh peach cake.
Hot rolls are always a hit with Grandpa. He uses them for dinner and dessert. We also served some green beans fresh from the garden.

Joe presided over the affair. He and Laurie just returned from a two week trip back East and after spending a week catching up, they will head to Deer Valley.
