Haven, Hogs and Horse Heaven!

Last week Dad went to St. George without me while I did some "stuff" that I had to do here.  One fun thing was my haven of dear friends in my Book Club!  We met at Marsha Richard's house in North Salt Lake just around the corner from Lenna's and we had such a fun "Surprise for your Eyes" lunch!

Marsha thinks of everything! Note the recipes by each plate!

Mike Preece reviewed Massacre at Mountain Meadow for us and excruciating as it was to know the awful truth, it is such a fascinating, finally really balanced account of what actually happened. About a third of the book is footnotes. I can't believe the research they put forth to make it happen, nor can I believe that it happened! 

I headed straight up to Logan to visit with Grandma and Kevan and we had a little "Costco Dinner" together. Grandma is doing so well and Kevan is too! We're so grateful that they have each other!

Next I drove on up to Bear Lake where I slept overnight at the Bamboo house and then measure the windows from shades in the living room to protect ourselves from the heat this summer. Still gotta order those!

Came home that morning, planned reunions for July 10th and 11th with the extended family and then headed for the airport, where I just realized that my car still is! 

Anyway, I flew to St. George where Dad and I slept at Looslis and headed out to grab a Harley to drive through Zion's canyon on Friday.  It was an amazing way to feel, smell, touch and see nature close up and personal...as well as fast!  We had a great time!

The next day the Looslis came up to Kolob and we went to Horse Heaven in five fingers of the Kolob.
