Wow!! We had such a great time. McCall and Jon are so kind and such a joy to be around. McCall is one of the most positive ladies I know and incredibly organized and talented! I met so many wonderful ladies! Almost half of the ladies who attended were from out of state. That goes to show you how wonderful everyone thinks of McCall and Jon!  We scrapbooked a ton, had a couple of classes, ate great food, some did a little touring of Salt Lake City, had a Cricut Class and just had fun!!

Liberty Falls
After spending the first part of my spring/summer working in the yard, we then went on a two week trip to Alaska.  My husband and I went with my good friend Julie and her husband.  We stayed with Julie's sister and her husband some of the time and traveled most of the other time.  We had so much fun.  Alaska is so beautiful.  Everything is green and wet.  There are so many rivers, lakes, waterfalls, mountains and trees.  I hope you enjoy some of my pictures!!
