We Love Espana

The Madrid Temple


The aqueduct in Segovia


Sisters with the castle in Segovia

I'm sitting here reminiscing about our fabulous time in Spain. We went to visit my sister Murlene and her husband Stan. They are mission presidents in Madrid. I'm so happy that we made the effort to get there. We loved every day and every sight. It was so fun spending time with The Watkins and grateful that they took the time out of their busy schedules to make sure that we had a great experience. They are doing an amazing work there in Spain.

The history of Spain is amazing and they have maintained so many wonderful and beautiful castles, palaces and historic places of interest. Madrid is such a big beautiful, clean wonderful city. They small towns we visited were so quaint and interesting. I could sit at a sidewalk cafe all day with a diet coke and soak up the ambiance. After a great week we left and flew off to spend a week in London. That will be another post.

Brown Family Reunion

I know I am so far behind in my Blogging, so I have to not worry about it and just make some short sweet posts for my own records. The reunion was such a hit. I think all who came had a great time. We surely missed those who weren't able to come. Next year maybe more can come.

Ansel Scott

Well so much has been going on this summer that my blogging has really been slow. I can't go another day without posting my welcome to the newest member of our family. Ansel Scott was born August 6th. Congratulations to Tim and Brandi. Brandi, always ahead of the game, had him 9 days early. He is so darling, and such a good baby. Elsie is so happy to have her brother here finally, and we are all proud as punch!

Golfing at the Homestead

Friday we spent a wonderful day golfing at the Homestead Resort. It is a beautiful course tucked into a high alpine valley. If you forget where you really are and look around you might think you are in beautiful Switzerland.

These are our wonderful friends Mike and Debbie, who also love to run away for a bit of golf whenever we can manage it.

Me and my sweetie

With the flooding we are having this summer we are lucky they are able to keep the creek managed with a few sandbags here and there.

Where ever we go with these crazies, we love to bust out the 5 Crowns cards after dark. We stayed at the lovely Zermott Resort for the night and let me say, one night is not enough here. I could have stayed for a week enjoying the Swiss ambiance, good friends, good golf and relaxation in this beautiful valley.

The Provo River

Here are a few pictures of our bike ride up the canyon this morning. The Provo River crested today. It is raging but staying within it's banks, thank goodness.
