Out and About 3/25/07

This week Joseph has been out and about quite a bit. He took Mom, Elizabeth and the grandkids on a tour of downtown on Monday. They hadn't ever taken TRAX and Ethan and Cheyenne really wanted to go a on a train. At the stop for the Salt Lake City Library Joseph lead them on a tour, again none of them had been there before. The first photo is on the roof. Cheyenne didn't pick the daffodil for Uncle Joe, she found it lying on the ground. (Each spring we really miss the green hills of Wales covered with wild daffodils). They had a grand adventure.

Tuesday Joseph and Dad went to the Jazz game and throughly enjoyed the team's win over the Golden State Warriors. Joseph took Dad on a pre-game tour of the demolition of the Crossroads Mall. Tim can't see all the demolition from the East as he walks across to the foodcourt and was surprized at the progress being made. Joseph had shown Mom and the rest of the family the day before. We liked the irony of the sign on the Mall door: "Please use Main Street Doors".

Saturday the the Young Men and leaders of the Westlake 9th Ward began hooking up the new sprinkling system in the back yard. They have done such a great job. It is amazing to see how much Joseph enjoys it. He often leaves his back door open during the day and makes multiple trips out to enjoy the sunshine and the back garden (okay. . . 'yard' in US speak). The shrubs and trees they planted last fall are begining to bud and everything is looking like spring. The Young Women came a couple of weeks ago and planted pansies. We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and generousity that fills our lives with joy.

Wow, you sure have had a lot of adventures. You get around more than I do. work and school, that's all I do these days (and the gym, too, of course *grins*). Don't you just love the view from the top of the library? That's a really great place.

I missed the entry on the zip line in the tree. Was that flag up when I was there? I must have missed it, darn! Sounds like you kept things exciting.

Have fun at the reunion. (Just don't block my driveway. *wink*)
