Last night we went to the Jackson Brown concert at Deer Valley with Kathy & Dave, Lee and Bill and their daughter Andrea. We packed a picnic, had a great bottle of wine and sat on the hill side listening to Jackson Brown. It doesn't get much more relaxing than that!!
Frequenting the "Dew Drop Inn", the only place to eat in Hoffman.
My godmother, Marion, and my sister Diane.
A few of my nieces and nephews.
We had lunch at this great Italian place in Alexandria.
Rebecca and Jeff's wedding. Her mother and I were high school friends and were room mates when I went to Moorhead State.
I spent 6 days in Minnesota with my mom and siblings. Sarah also drove up from Omaha. We packed a lot into 6 days. Everything from going to a wedding, doing some painting and cleaning for my mother, checking out a couple of new restaurants, and visiting with my godmother and one of my college room mates.

Total amazing!!! I love Chris Isaak! His concert is the best. It was an outdoor concert at Red Butte Gardens in SLC. We were really worried it was going to rain but it only rained while we were waiting in line and then it was the perfect night! We packed a picnic and had a great bottle of wine and Chris Isaak was wonderful. If you get a chance to see him in concert, don't miss it.
