with Grandpa in their Vernal, UT home
April of 2004, we spent some time out in Vernal, UT with Steve's
family. It was filled with lot's of adventures as you
will see in the pictures below. Some of our favorite things
were visiting with different farm animals, riding some horses,
touring some local museums but most of all we just enjoyed being
with each other.
first picture is of Ben and I trying to coax the calf over by
sticking my thumb out. They didn't buy it. They
were really pretty but didn't smell so good. The next
two pictures is a true "like father like son".
Steven loves animals and has no problem showing it. Ben
was right there beside him refusing to let his Daddy "one
up him". It was a very windy day but so worth visiting
the farm. The kids were so excited to be there.
of the afternoons we were in Vernal we got ride the neighbor's
horses. He is a good friend of Steve's parent's, Bishop
Weber. The horse you see above is named "Cookie".
She was a great horse and was very friendly to ride. The
kids loved every minute of it.
picture is of Aunt Suzanne, Steve's sister. She is Ben's
most favorite because she sends him love in so many ways.
Even though she lives so far away from him she is always thinking
of him and his needs. We are grateful that she is a part
of his life and ours as well.
and Granpa Orton loved nothing better than to snuggle up with
their Benjamin. I know that Ben enjoyed his time with
them as much as they enjoyed their time with him. He is
so dearly loved by his family in Utah. We are thankful
that our families are forever.
