Beautiful Wedding, Great Friends and Handsome Bristol

We were so lucky to be able to go to Brock and Emily's gorgeous wedding in Salt Lake. 
We love the Lords' family!!!
 It's hard to believe that it's been 38 1/2 years since we were married here:)

Look at this big, grown up, handsome boy... We love you Bristol!!
A couple of weeks after Brock and Emily's wedding, we went back to Utah for Becky's wedding... 
She is the daughter of my dear friend Kaye, who passed away last January. 
I'm so grateful we were able to be there and let them all know how much we love them.

Duck Creek

 Thanks to our dear friends Jan and Derrick, Allyn and I were able to go to Duck Creek for a few days and enjoy long walks, long talks, and needed time to talk about joys, blessings and yes heartaches. We miss Leah, Caleb and Amber so much it hurts everyday. Sometimes, we just need to get away and cry together and remember. It's healing to remember good times, and all of the sweet memories. We don't understand or know why things happen the way they do, but what we do know is that we love the Lord, and we trust in God's promises. 
We will keep moving forward each day, loving, giving and remembering. 

Jennie brought a few of the kids up for a couple of days and I loved taking them horse back riding!! We had a blast!!! Definitely something we have to do again!!
