Our busy life with an amazing veterinarian and cattleman, a gardening, quilting and history loving wife and mother, a creative perfectionist violinist, a spunky and kind epileptic princess, a sweet yet wild little man, and the most mellow and happy babe, on a joyful 1/2 acre living and loving in a beautiful mountain valley.

My pony is facing East
At around 5:00 tomorrow morning I am headed to Manassas, Virginia for the 150th Anniversary Commemoration of the first major battle of the American Civil War. If you are a Rebel, you call it the Battle of Manassas, if you are a Yankee, you call it the First Battle of Bull Run - either way, I am so excited for such a wonderful opportunity!
I am flying out with my good friend Amanda. We are so excited to be able to participate in this event. Some of our UCWA guys are driving out and are on their way right now. It is going to be such a great experience with around 8,500 reenactors!
I am leaving my sweet little ones with my niece April for a day, and then Matt is taking Friday off. They have great plans for the 24th of July weekend. I know they will be so busy with all the festivities that I will miss them more than they will even think about missing me! With the 24th of July in mind, all of you Utahans please think of the history of our great state!
