Then wow, a movie star from High School musical was also at Mesa Thrift! can you believe it! I got his autograph to prove that I saw him.
And then these two were also at Mesa Thrift, P.J. Smithie and his wife Carla. They were all the rage a few years back...
Its good to have a fun friend like Zach Power as a husband. He makes life so entertaining!
This was aunt Becky's very cute face painting booth where Zach and I will some times paint faces for hours on end, at a very quick pace to make a little extra cash, and have a little fun!
We also went to the best, annual Edward Partridge family reunion in Oak City Utah, the Center of the Universe. It is a family favorite, complete with home made sour dough pancakes, a small town, family, and shared stories of grandpa and grandma. This was Zach's first year to experience the thrill of it all! ha.
Oh yeah, this is my dad with Lydia's hair....Had to throw this one in...
Zach and cousin Blake from Arizona, I do not know why they are making those faces? And yet they still look nice...
The famous grave site of Grandma Lydia..whom my Lydia was named after.
WE babysat a family for a week while their parents were on a cruise, and Zach and I got a little hands on family experience....
One of the girls, Ashton, on the left, is in one of my Ballet classes that I teach at the Pointe! Aren't they so cute!
Well that all for now.

Hayden is one of the new senators down on the Snow college Student Government. He will be down with Zach and I in our "Sanpete Sanctuary".
(ps. we match! look below! This was at Liberty Jail.)
Hayden has a way with the little nieces, Eden and Eva. As long as I can remember, Hayden is always loved by the little kiddies.
Love you Buddy.
Said President Brigham Young:
I have heard a great many tell about what they have suffered for Christ's sake. I am happy to say I never had occasion to. I have enjoyed a great deal, but so far as suffering goes I have compared it a great many times, in my feelings and before congregations, to a man wearing an old, worn-out, tattered and dirty coat, and somebody comes along and gives him one that is new, whole and beautiful. This is the comparison I draw when I think of what I've suffered for the Gospel's sake--I have thrown away an old coat and have put on a new one. [Discourses of Brigham Young, comp. John A. Widtsoe (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1973), p. 348]
The saints never suffer as the sinners do, President Young explained:
As to trials, why bless your hearts, the man or woman who enjoys the spirit of our religion has no trials; but the man or woman who tries to live according to the Gospel of the Son of God, and at the same time clings to the spirit of the world, has trials and sorrows acute and keen, and that, too, continually.
Cast off the yoke of the enemy, and put on the yoke of Christ, and you will say that his yoke is easy and his burden is light. This I know by experience. [Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 348]
Do you know one reason why righteous mothers love their children so much? It's because they sacrifice so much for them. We love what we sacrifice for, and we sacrifice for what we love. (President Benson, BYU Devotional, Jesus Christ Gifts and Expectations)
