We are getting a new roof!  Who knew home improvements could excite me?!  Making progress on our home is very gratifying.  We have a long way to go, but this is a major project that will light a fire.

So, we went on a mini-vacation as a family (Daley's). Austin recently got his mission call to serve in the Minneapolis, Minnesota mission. So we wanted him to be forced to spend time with us so...what better place for an aspiring missionary to visit than Las Vegas. Our hotel was a bit of a dive and I didn't really care. The one redeeming quality was there was a giant billboard on our hotel/casino of a showgirl's butt in a rhinestone thong. That really made up for the smell of sweat, beer and cigarettes that filled the air. Gracie had some rough times but had some good ones too. Overall, it was fun. I even look forward to going back...without Gracie. So Leah...prepare yourself...we are going to ask you to adopt a toddler for a few days in the near future. Well, that's all for now. I hope everyone is doing well.
