Random Shots

Here's a picture of Brooke, Matt and myself in front of the "Gingerbread Shop" at Christmas time. This leads up to my adventures this summer at the Del Mar Fair in San Diego, where I spent a few weeks working making gingerbread and all kinds of desserts.

But to start off the summer, I got to take a little trip with my friend Adele to Payson, where I joined up with Dennis, Rosemary and Malinda for another road trip to Jackson Hole and to Idaho to visit Glenn and Jeri.

We had so much fun in Jackson Hole going on covered wagons to a dutch oven barbecue and western show. It was completely Dennis' style. And we celebrated Mom's birthday.

We visited the 'Mountain Man Rendezvous' and looked at furs and beads and shot arrows.

Then on to Payson for Memorial Day. We drove up Payson Canyon and saw the high waters and swift flowing streams. Dennis and I stopped for a nice cool drink from water flowing from the canyon.

I think Dennis knows just about everything about Payson Canyon.

While in Payson, I visited with Don and Cindy, but sorry no pictures. Flint had me come over for a visit in his nice new house. Here's a shot of his cute family with baby due any day.

On our way to Jackson Hole, we visited with Glenn and Jeri and had a delicious turkey dinner at their home.

The cemetery was beautifully decorated with flowers on memorial day. We took several plants and placed on graves. Here's where my parents are laid to rest.

Then in June I started my adventures in San Diego. I spent a weekend with my friend Christy doing about everything humanly possible. We went to Horton Plaza, Sea Port Village, Coronado Island, Balboa Park, and Old Town. We even had lunch in the Hard Rock Cafe and dessert in Ghirardelli Ice Cream Parlor. What fun!

I took some time to visit the naval base and light house at Point Loma. There was a breath taking view of San Diego and it was amazing to see the many thousands of veteran tombstones there.

I also visited the temple a few times to keep focused on the important things in life. It is so beautiful and peaceful there.

I couldn't resist a picture of the colorful flowers.

I didn't really take pictures at the fair, but it was a wonderful opportunity to be there, work, and enjoy the beauty of San Diego. It was also great to see friends and family who came down to visit. And I got to go to a "Beach Boys" Concert!
