Here is the original Franck family unit, missing David, just ain't the same without him.
We were all at a Sunday dinner, hosted by Jesus in his home. We had a traditional Franck roast beef dinner and lots of laughter. good times!!

Paula's 50!!

On September 16th 2009 I turned 50 years old!! I can't believe it, isn't that supposed to be old? I don't feel it!! I spent the day with visiting my father in the morning, then out to lunch and a movie with my mother and then Kevin invited people over for cake and ice cream, he gave me a new bike!! It was a good day.

What a cute couple!!


How lucky am I to have such wonderful parents??

One Happy LIttle Boy!

He always has a smile for you!

Ride Savannah Ride!!

video

Doesn't do it justice!!

I don't think any camera could capture how beautiful the leaves are this year. I was able to drive up on Sunday with widow from my ward and then with my husband, Mother and Father and his cousin on Monday - so amazing and vibrant!!

Check out the view!!

So, I've moved offices. I used to be in the Richards Building, in the cave as we called it, no windows. I only knew what the weather when the thunder would crack overhead or people would come in with snow on their hats. Yesterday I watched a storm roll in and dump snow on top of Timpanogos. The mountain is now snow capped and the red and orange leaves are at her feet, it's incredible!! That's Lavell Edwards stadium there, wish I could see the games from here but I can't, it will be the perfect stop to watch fireworks next 4th of July though!!

Noah & Bert's birthdays

Noah's birthday is the 21st of August and Bert's is the 22nd. Noah is 29, Bert is 18!!

Jake came to visit!!

We actually got to see him for a couple of hours. He helped Gramp remove nails from boards as Kevin worked on the fence.

IT'S ABOY!!!!

Boy oh Boy, it's a boy!! I hope he has curly hair like Noah and big eyes like Stephanie and that he comes over to play often!!

David James' 24th birthday

Seth and Chelsey's wedding

My mom, Noah and I were able to fly up to Portland for Seth's marriage to Chelsey on Saturday, June 27. Noah was the photographer and took some great photos (these aren't those). It was good to be there for him and help out with the wedding/reception. The weather was beautiful and everything went well. Todd performed the wedding in the old Chapel on Going Street.
Noah and I had to leave the next day, my mom is staying for a couple of weeks.




We thought Seth had Pink Eye for his wedding, it turned out to be a piece of shrapnel that was working it's way out. Our Marines do more for us that we know!! After 3 tours to Iraq he is still dealing with it. Thanks Seth!!

Manti

A friend of ours let us use their cabin for 3 nights just outside of Manti at 6 mile Canyon. It was a nice home with a bunk house, there was plenty of room for a crowd but it was Stephanie, Noah, David, Kevin and I. Hazel, Nate, Savannah and Jaxon came up for a little while. Nate fished and was happy with Lake Palisade. We went to the temple and to the pageant. Savannah fed the ducks until they couldn't eat anymore. Kevin took her on a squirrel hunt using squirt guns. We came across a great book sale, $6.25 for a big box of used children's books!! It was a fun time, thanks to the Skousens.

Cancun Mexico

Look at that water, its not been photoshopped or anything, it really is that beautiful!!
I don't have the underwater pictures developed yet, I'll post those as soon as I get them.

Cancun Caribe Grand Park Royal Hotel


It was a beautiful hotel and so fun to be there with Jane and Dave!

hmmm, nothing there we need to spend our pesos on!!

When in Mexico....

Chichen Itza Temple

Chichen Itza in Mayan means Water Well Witches, don't know why though.
Here's Kevin and I with David and Jane at the main temple. It was fascinating. It was a hot, muggy day, hence why we're in the shade.

Happy Memorial day!!

I really like this photo of Dad and Mom with the flag in the background.

Vet Memorial

This is a fairly recent addition to the PG cemetery. It is a very nice tribute to the armed forces, there is also a lovely fountain, flowers and name plaques.
