Our Family has grown!

We are so blessed to have such a beautiful family!


The revival of Sam the YAM!

It's been quite awhile since Sam has been out and about looking for the opportunity to share family fun times and help capture memories. I thought it was about time to start anew and have some fun.

It's Feb 1, 2017.
Donald Trump was just sworn in as President of the United States. Sure wish Sam would have been around then so there could have been a candidate that would have been worth voting for. Can you it now on the ballot:
Donald Trump
Hillary Clinton

The Best Memories of The Summer of 2012

We had a most excellent summer which captured many great memories. A great start was the wedding of my niece Taylor Ames, to Daniel Bowcutt. What a beautiful couple married in the Salt Lake Temple. We had a great time as a family getting Jim and Holly's yard ready. A perfect setting for a perfect couple. Jordan and I had a great day cutting hay at the Brown ranch in Tonto Basin. Ask Jordan about the frogs. We took a family trip to Fossil Springs. A great Colorado adventure to ride the 2012 Copper Triangle. We stopped enroute at the Monticello Ut temple, did a family river trip, and had great fun at Copper Mountain. I also had the opportunity to participate in the charity golf tournament created by Chase Robertson who was doing an Eagle Scout Project in support his great grandfather, Bob Bowen, who died last year. He had been diagnosed with Parkinson's" Taylor and Daniel's Wedding, Cutting Hay at The Browns Ranch, 2012 Copper Triangle, Spending Time With Family in Utah

We have such cute grandsons! I love you Kyler "Boy"!


Tour de Safford

Jordan and I will be riding the Tour de Safford on October 29, 2011. It will be the 33 mile segment. I am excited to be with Jordan!


In Tucson, Az

We are in Tucson Az for Labor Day weekend spending it with McKelle, Casey, Brigden and Kyler. Oh what a great little family they are.

Tucson seems to be a great place. McKelle, Jordan, and I took a cycling excursion. There is a great bike path here and Tucson is a bike friendly city.

We drove up Mt.Lemmon to Summerhaven. What a beautiful place. We went on a nice hike. Brigden is quite the hiker.


Over 1200 Cycling Miles!

Since I bought my bike in March I have logged over 1200 miles, averaging 350 miles per month. I am grateful that I can do this and am grateful for my friends I ride with. You all keep me pedaling and I thank you!
