Taking a BREAK or snooze

Mostly just refraining from spending hours on FACEBOOK and noting how I can use my time better doing other worthwhile things like organizing and decluttering my home and mind, studying scriptures, journaling, thinking more deeply about my life as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also known as the Mormons or LDS church.

Enjoying outings...

Another trip to Pine Valley for a picnic lunch
Then a cool walk along the Santa Clara River
Where the river begins in these mountains
Pine Valley Mountains
Lunch with Caryn at HuHot Mongolian BBQ
Fill it up with meat and veggies then sauces
So much to choose from.
Then it gets stir fried, and it's all you can eat...

Johnson Family Reunion 2018

We started our Johnson family reunion after not holding them for awhile. It's difficult to get everyone together with families involved with so many Sat. activities but we did. Thanks to my son Daniel and his cousin Michele. Twenty came and we ate delicious food prepared by Dan and family, visited lots and caught up on family activities. We also played a family Jeopardy Game to help every get to know their ancestors better. They decided to meet next year on Sat, June 29th-place TBA.

We had Johnson descendents from Jody, Albert, Lin and Marion's families
We met at Mutual Dell Lodge in American Fork Canyon

Only original Johnson cousins attending-Lin and Jody
 Sorry that Aunt Ethel couldn't attend she fell down today.
Waiting in line to go up American Fork Canyon
We drove around Alpine Loop after the reunion to see the sights
