The week before we left, 30 of our 34 family members gathered for a last reunion. We took the picture above and spent three days camping on our property, swimming, riding horses, eating, hiking, riding ATV's, eating, fishing, visiting, playing games, and eating. We will all have fond memories of our time together.
The evening before we started the reunion, 4 of our children and their spouses joined us for a session in the Dallas Temple. We officiated and It was an emotional experience for us.
The week before the reunion, we took those who were in town to the Fort Worth Zoo. We had a great time!

One other milestone event that took place just before we all got together was Rick's retirement dinner. Five of our children and most of their spouses were there for this special occasion. We were joined by Rick's manager, Avalyn Pace, and department director, Tanya Bubash.
