Back in the Saddle

It's time for me to get back in the saddle here.  I love to post on my blog, and need to keep up better.

Dana and I have been busy though, and our work continues to keep us out of town.  We have been to Hardin, Montana, and Colorado Springs, Co.  This last few months.  Teaching self- reliance in Hardin, and visiting Tara and the boys in Colorado.  It was great, and both trips fun.

As we drove to Hardin, we stopped in Rexburg, Idaho and visited the temple, then that evening we visited Wes and Alissa Haws and their family.  We met them in Ethiopia, and became such good friends.  They adopted 5 children in Ethiopia, and it was so much fun to see the kids and their view of  America, what they liked about the US, and such.  They had dinner for us and we visited for the evening.  It was pure joy, and such a treat.

Then to Billings, Mt where we visited another temple, before we spent a few days on the reservation with a small branch in Hardin.  Great people there, with great desire to become self-reliant.  It touches our hearts when they are so willing.

Yesterday we arrived home from a week long visit with Tara, Jeremiah's wife, kissing the grandkids, and especially Kade the new baby, and helping around the house with the honey-do list.  She is such a great person and mother.  We were able to work on the front yard, and it made such a big difference in the look of the house.  Loved our visit and glad we were able to help.

This is the bulk of the week, helping get the front yard landscaped, but the real reason we visited is we have a new grand son!  Here are photos of new baby Kade and his brothers.

This is Baby Kade,  Tara and Jeremiah's new baby boy.

 Weston fell in love with Grandpa, and wanted him close always
Here is our Braxton after he got his hair cut!

We had a great week, and loved our time there.  Tara is so special, and we wonder how she gets anything done will this crew, but she does a great job!  

Well, off for now!
