Friends, Fireworks and Freedom

Happy Birthday USA!
Independence Day was celebrated on Saturday in the United States (Fourth of July). The Taggart Family enjoyed time with the Bird Children this week, Elizabeth came down while Denny had double shifts etc with the holiday events in Cache Valley. While she was slaving away helping Mom around the house, 'Uncle Joe' enjoyed taking the kids to the playground, riding bikes, and enjoying the summer weather. They also made it to the Zoo again this week.

Tim took Thursday off (Friday was the Holiday from work) and everyone went to see Disney's UP, a wonderful movie and a delightful story. (What a blast to see Ethan in 3D Glasses, eating up the movie) Friday Joseph and friends went to the Real Salt Lake soccer game and enjoyed fireworks afterward.

Sunday Tim and Gloria went over to visit Ken and Mary DuVall. They just returned from serving as mission president of the Spain Bilbao Mission. The two couples commiserated with each other and the Taggarts testified there was life after the Mission for Presidents too. They are such a dynamic couple and were great leaders who impacted the lives of many over the three years. We are looking forward to their report in sacrament meeting next Sunday at 9AM.

Sunday evening we all enjoyed mission dividends (which the DuValls will come to treasure) as we had a visit from Roger and Veronique White (see the post for Sunday, July 08, 2007 for more info on this great couple --link: July 2007 ) Roger was one of our assistants and Veronique, originally from Netherlands, was baptized while a student in Bristol. What an awesome family!
