This is some pictures from our trip to the Henry Ford Museum. This was excellent to visit. First the kids saw the original Oscar Meyer Vehicle and then become and oscar meyer weiner. The other picture is a picture of the kids in the actual bus Rosa Parks took the stand and refused to be moved to the back of the bus. Very awesome to see.
The kids and I just got back from a great trip to Michigan. We went to my nephews wedding and also to see friends and family. We spent a few days with Lance (brother) & Nicole (sisternlaw) and their children (Cody, Hanna, Madison, Kayden, Gaven, and Olyvea) There we went bowling and fishing and swimming at Flint Lake. Next we went to my mom's school friend, Mary, and spent a couple days. Then my mom Hayley, Riley, and I went touring. (Frankenmuth, Henry Ford Museum, and Huckleberry Railroad).

What a blessed week at the farm. It is so awesome how God picked the perfect time, perfect people, and perfect weather for us. It always amazes me how sweet it is to serve at the farm. As always we were filled beyong belief. It was a wonderful week of reuniting with old friends, meeting new brothers in the Lord, and witnissing the power of God each day.

I love this picture. I am so amazed how much they are all growing up. It seems just like yesterday they were all babies. My children are so blessed to have such great cousins. Meg & Mack are going to spend the week with us in Colorado for our missions trip. I am so looking forward to this special time. Please pray for all of us. We are leaving Sunday, June 14 until Friday June 19.

Our first camp out was full of fun. Rich, Hayley, Riley, & I met up with Grandma Rosie and Grandpa Cal at CJ Strike for some great fishing. We caught many, many fish. Hayley caught the most with 20 and Riley and Grandma tied for the longest, 11 inches. We had a wonderful time even though we had many mosquitoes and plenty of ticks. Some of the highlights of the trip was Richard disappointed that somebody ran into the new bridge Idaho Power has been working so hard at improving. Even better, was when he found out Grandpa Cal was the one that ran into it. :) Another adventure was when Riley found a tick on him . . . enough said. Finally, when Grandpa Cal was crawling back into bed in the middle of the night and Richard sneakingly grabbed his foot. All I can say was it was a good thing he had already been to the bathroom. We all had lots of laughs, a few fights (picking the best fishing spot), and many many yummy crappie to eat.

Hagerman was full of excitement for the weekend. Both kids were in the parade. Hayley and her friends were asked to carry the fossil day banner which lead the parade through main street. Riley and his friend, Cody, decorated the go-cart and also went in the parade. It was excellent weather Saturday, great corn-dogs and elephant ears, and as always wonderful to see many many old friends.

Forgive me, it has been so long since I posted. I will try not to go so long next time. This was Hayley's first track meet. She decided to trake track just to say in shape and ended up doing really well. She placed 1st place in the disc. She is now determined to beat the school record. The other picture is just of her with some of her friends hanging out at the meet. It was a great day with great weather, which is often not the case for track days.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven" Ecc. 3:1 Boy what a reminder this was today. We woke up to beatufil snow all over and it is still snowing right now. What a surprise. We spent the weekend beginning our spring project. Now check out the project! I guess we needed a day inside. The best thing is that God has planned this just the way HE would have it to be. Have a wonderful day.

We had a blast training Aaron and Angel. Aaron is competitive enough that I knew he would love it. We were only able to find 2 out of the 3 caches. So we had a bet that whoever could find the missing one would win a free dinner. Darn Aaron sent me an email today with a picture of the missing geocache. So the White's lost. What a fun time we had.
We spent easter day being entertained by Grandma Kay and Grandpa Buzz. They decided to try out the Go-cart. They did great until Hayley decided to give Grandma a ride. Grandma was screaming somthing about needing a seat belt and Hayley should never get her license.
Our church had sunrise service in the city park today. God was so wonderful (as always). We had beautiful weather and an awesome time in the Lord. The little kids first sang a song, then our worship team (Rich drummer) led worship, Jeff Jester gave his testimony, and then Pastor Dion gave a short message with opportunity to accept Christ at the end. Amazing Easter. Our Redemer lives and is alive and active!! Hope you had a wonderful day also.

Hayley's last year of Easter Egg Hunting in the city park. The kid's had a great time. Weather was a little chilly but not to bad. The kids then spent the afternoon painting and hiding Easter eggs with their friends, the Douvilles. We are all excited for tomorrow morning. We are having a community Easter service in the park. Pray for good weather.
