Jazz and Masquerade recital and an indoor soccer game

 Jimmie, Joy, and Joshua played beautifully at a recent recital.  Jimmie's piece was Tribal celebration, Joy's piece was Dance of the Spiders, and Joshua's piece was Takin It Easy.  Proud of you three!!
Then we went to Jenny's indoor soccer game.  They played well 6-6.  And, we got to see Jenny make a goal!!!  Way to go Jen.  It was really fun to watch Jen play, brought back memories of our fiesty little 4 yr. old playing several years ago.  She is still just as fiesty:)

Roy and Julie's get away :)

Roy and I had an opportunity to spend four days in Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming. It was a wonderful get away. We enjoyed each other so much, along with God's amazing creation. It was Awesome!!!!!!

Salt Lake City Temple Square.

The Mormon Temple - an amazing structure. It took them 40 years to build it.

The Mormon tabernacle and organ. There is someone playing and it sounded beautiful.

From desolate Rock Springs, Wy to beautiful Jackson, Wy

Can you believe those colors. God is so amazing with His beauty.

Such a good looking tourist:)

Bradley lake in the Teton National Park.

As we walked back from Bradley lake we could hear the Elk bugling .

One day we rode a tram to the top of a peak close the Tetons. This was a pretty pic looking down.

And, this is looking at the Grand Teton from the top of the tram ride.

Top of the peak after the tram ride.

Pretty Aspens.

We spotted a bull Elk way off in the distance. I couldn't zoom in any more.

The Tetons

Cow moose we saw on the side of the road as we drove out Sun. am. It was still dark so the picture isn't great. Apparently she got hit by a car. She could barely walk.

Cow and calf elk. A pretty sight.

Papa's leopard finally home and mounted:)

Good morning boys, what a way to wake up after a good nights sleep on the tramp:)

Good shot, Matthew!!

These next three are really cute, however; did not really show the total cute affect. Amy had been sitting on the steps with Blue and Killer with her arm around Killer :)

And, last but not least cute Patty!!!!!!!
