We all met in Richfield, Utah coming from St. George & Salt Lake area & met at Dave's and had spaghetti dinner. We then went to WalMart after drawing names of each family member. At WalMart, we could only spend $5.00 on a gift for the name we drew. We came back to Dave's, wrapped the gift and then each person opened their gift one at a time and enjoyed the evening with such an awesome family. Some stayed the night--we drove home. What a wonderful evening.
We also went to Big Spring, Missouri by Van Buren, Missouri this spring gives out 159 to 800 million gallons of water a day. The spring would fill a football stadium in a day. So beautiful there.
