Popcorn Popping

  Spring is definitely a beautiful time of year.  Jeni and I went back up to Memory Grove Park below the capitol to have a picnic yesterday.  We weren't the only ones with the idea; there were people walking their dogs, taking pictures, running, and jogging up the trails.  It was a nice clear and warm day.  One of my favorite parts were watching the dogs jump in the water to fetch their sticks.  There were dogs of all sizes, types, and colors.  They would meet other dogs and start playing together.  We saw a big black dog playing with a little white puppy.  It was funny to see the little dog taunt the bigger one then run away--  In a way they are not much different than human kids.

Rusty Red

 

I work off 24th street.  For all intents and purposes, it is a very good street to work by.  Every morning and every evening I pass by this granary or some sort of mill that is painted and/or rusted into some very pretty colors.   Pretty--I'm sure some of you are thinking that I'm going soft using such words, but I'll assure you that not only are rusty reds pretty, they are also manly.   Anyway, it doesn't matter which colors are pretty or manly as long as they are vibrant.

Field of Eggs



The Lion's Club put on their annual Easter egg hunt in Morgan.  There was quite the showing for a small town.  When the clock struck twelve, the entire field of eggs was devoured within the next minute by confused two year olds and eager parents.  I think Spee found a couple eggs while Jeni's nephew was able to get one--which we had to guard from the other kids until he had the courage to reach out his hand and pick it up.  What we took from the experience was that there really wasn't any "hunting" going on in the Easter egg hunt.  From what I saw, the event probably looked very similar to what the pioneers in the Salt Lake valley witnessed when their fields got devoured by locusts.

In the Air



With the snow the past few days, it’s hard to believe that spring is here. We all aren’t surprised by the lingering snow showers of Utah, but it doesn’t make it any more pleasant. For me, I look forward to the warm weather, to the green grass and vibrant flowers, and to outside activities with family and friends. Here is a picture of Kimi (Kristy’s sister) who is getting married and asked me to take a couple of pictures for her. They turned out great and it helped that Temple Square is in full bloom right now—the flowers are amazing!
