Summer is slowly drawing to a close. It is one where I have been fortunate to have been able to spend most of it at home. Travel, like everything else has slowed down. Garden is finished but not after a bumper crop of huge tomatoes. The dogs are happy and we were able to spend each day together.
Last month saw the Shepherd clan come together in Saint George, Utah. What a great time was had. 11 grand kids 9 adult and Papa (I'm not sure I count as an adult...). though short, the trip was a great opportunity to be together as a family. The trip to Zions National Park will be a memory held very dearly. What a wonderful day. The kids will not soon forget the fun in the pool and slingshot the water balloons. Omi's special towels and the food! what a great time.
As a father and mother we could not be more proud of our family. The Lord has certainly blessed Dena and I.
We look forward to December where many of us we will again be together to celebrate the addition of a new member of the family.
