A Fair State, a State Fair and a Fine State of Affairs

Labor Day Wedding in Cache Valley
Monday saw Gloria and Tim driving up to Logan and joining with Elizabeth, Denny and the kids to go to Weston Idaho for a wedding. Gloria's brother Neil renewed his vows in a private ceremony at home with his wife LuAnn. The drive was beautiful and the family reunion was great. The view of the mountains across the valley remined Tim of the hundreds of hours driving a tractor looking at the same view in Lewiston, just a couple of miles southeast. The family drove through Lewiston on the way back and reminisced as they enjoyed a spectaculor sunset.

A Delightful Drive to Morgan
On Tuesday, Tim took a ride to Morgan Utah with some of his George Washington Taggart cousins. GW Taggart, Tim's Great Grandfather came west with the Mormon Battalion and settled in Morgan (see GWT Biography). The group was checking out the DUP museum as a possible home of family artifacts, making them accessable to everyone. In the photo Left to Right: Rulon Crosby, Bountiful; Jay Taggart, Morgan; Julie Rabe, Clearfield; and Tim. They are standing behind GWTaggart's headstone in the beautiful Morgan Cemetary. This is a pretty fair state!
AV Department Picnic
Friday night the Church AV Department had their summer picnic in Utah Valley. It was fun to see everyone and enjoy an evening together of fun and frolic. A fine state of affairs! The photo on the right includes Dale and Joyce Jones (Dale is the Director of Production, Tim was Joyce's home teacher when they were young'ns in Lewiston together) and Chante Wouden. Compared to Chante's bubbly positive attitude, Tim is downright sedate and morose.

Utah State Fair
Saturday Joseph decided he wanted to take Ethan and Cheyenne to the State Fair. Elizabeth and Dad enjoyed tagging along (with Tim doing his normal thing of taking photos of the grandkids). It was really fun. They loved seeing and petting the animals and were delighted with the carnival rides too. It is great to feel the joy and delight of discovery and pure abandonment of thrill rides. Ah the joys of having children around.
