Our son Travis put together this montage of his dad Monte for Father's Day. So I thought I'd also add a montage of Travis, as a father of two, with his daughter Scout. Then thought I'd also add a family photo of our daughter Heather with her husband Bill, a father two of too.

Fathers, daughters, sons, kids, husbands, and grandkids . . . Family!

Wine Wedding Favors

Dawson and Splarah wanted to give wedding favors of my homemade wine. So I'd started some of our favorite wine kits last fall - enough for serving at the wedding and enough for the favors. Making our own wine helped cut costs for the wedding.

Wine Favors we made, bottled and designed

Sarah helped bottle wine. Dawson created a label image. I think they turned out great. Everyone loved the wine and the favors to take home!

Our youngest got married! Dawson and Sarah got married in our aspen grove. The wedding party got ready in our home. The reception was a couple miles away in our friend's barn. EVERYTHING was perfect!!

All the week's of work . . . Cleaning up the woods, seeding bare patches once junk was junked, benches made from sawmilled logs from out property . . . Perfect!!
