On Saturday, Bill and I went on a road trip with good friends. First we went to Miami (of coarse, Arizona!) to eat at a little place called The Mexican Food, Burger House. Then after that we went north towards Roosevelt Dam and turned and visited Workman Creek falls inside Tonto National Forrest. It is really beautiful there...we even got to see snow and about 6 deer! What a wonderful way to spend on an amazing day. After that we drove back through Young and Payson. We stop in Payson at D.Q. for some ice cream...it was about 54* and we get an urge for ice cream. Where we crazy or what! Thanks Barron and Alicia for a fun day full of memories that will be with us forever!

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dads birthday...He would have been 88 years old today. He was my everything! I have so many fun memories that have been going through my head today. All the Father/Daughter days at primary, the Father /Daughter dates to Pete's Fish and Chips. Him inviting my brother and I to meet him and Mom after their Temple trip and eat at Mattas! (yum,yum) He has been gone for 20 years now but I feel him close everyday. Love you Dad!
