( This is my nephew Luke and I, at the Howdy Party for my niece's wedding. It was a party to have both sides of the family have fun and get to know each other...it was neat! )
Here is where the Howdy Party dinner was held, look at that view. It was held at Snow Basin, Needles Lodge, we had to go up by a tram, it was beautiful!
Here is the bull that they brought up for everyone who was brave enough to ride. I will show you photos of me even riding it. I know you don't believe it but...I have pictures to prove it! Here on the left, is some of my family watching and supporting us.
I think that in today's world where there are so many things that are dividing the family that it is vital that we do all that we can to strengthen and defend them. Having close relationships to our extended family can be a true blessing! And I am very grateful for that.
Good night dear friends!
