Pioneer Day Parade-St. Anthony, Idaho

 Randy and I went to the parade in St. Anthony.  I think it is great that they always start parades with the American Flag.  It helps you remember the sacrifices of so many.  I love my country.
 Different modes of transportation in the parade
 This is a small example of the floats.  The people in St. Anthony really go all out on their floats.

 We work with Doug  and Debbie Munns in our University Ward and his family had a float in the parade.
 The winning Float.
It was a great parade.  We have a great pioneer heritage that we should always remember all the PIONEERS   have done for us.  COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS.

Jackson Hole- Day Trip

Randy and I took off for a Day Trip in the little car.  It was great and warm to drive with the top down.
 First stop was Swan Valley, it is beautiful and you must make a stop and get "Square Ice Cream"
 Next stop Palisades Dam.  The lake is fuller than I have seen it in years.  
 A Hawk or Osprey in it's nest on top of a telephone pole.
 We stopped at "Lunch Counter" (a section of rapids on the river) and watch the people floating down.  I thought it was interesting to see a guy surf boarding, also a lot of rubber rafts and kayakers.
 Downtown Jackson, Wyoming.  I learned in the museum that JACKSON is the town and JACKSON HOLE is the valley.
 We drove through the Elk Refuge.  The Tetons on the back side are breathe taking.
We ended the night by eating at the Saddle Rock Family Saloon and seeing the show "Paint Your Wagon" at the Jackson Hole Playhouse.  We drove home over the Teton Pass.
We had a great day.

Early Morning Bike Ride

 I left this morning just as the sun was rising.  The back yard looked so pretty with all the flowers in bloom.
 I went towards the temple, past the temple, went to the water tower, up on the dry farms and could see the "R" Mountain pretty good in the distance.  I am really missing my sister Deanna to go on bike rides with.  I always think of her when I head out.  Next summer!!!!!
I loved seeing the wild daisy's long side of the potato fields on the dry farms.

Landon Grand kids helping at Alpine Storage

The Landon Grand kids came out to the storage units and helped me do some fix up.  Kinsley helped with scrapping off the old unit numbers and putting on new ones.  There are lots of numbers on the doors out there.  Holden and Keagan used the brooms to sweep out the empty units.  They all took turns driving the golf cart to where we needed to go.
