Note from the mother of the bride.

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to say THANKS for a wonderful week. You guys were great to work with on the wedding and an A++++++ for the wonderful weather on the wedding day. We all made it safely back home Saturday night and we have a new little granddaughter born Sunday morning at 3:36 am. She was just waiting for Grandma & Grandpa and Aunt Stephanie & Uncle Jared to make it home. Her name is Eva Christine and of course she is beautiful like her older sisters Libby & Ellie. When I get my pictures downloaded I will send you some. Thanks again for a week to remember.

Rogers & Allen Rehersal Dinner Setup

Beverages are in place!
Tables are all set and the Entertainment Hall looks so pretty!
Wedding will take place here tomorrow and the weather is going to be perfect.

Nice words from a guest-thanks!!!

Dianne and everyone,
We really enjoyed meeting you and had loads of fun two weeks ago at Mantrap Lodge. Paul and I only caught one "keeper" fish, but we had an awesome time regardless. I now know why Dale, Jody and the grandchildren love coming there. We loved being your guest.
I thought you would like this photo of my autistic son, Brad, throwing a horseshoe in front of our cabin. Hope to see everyone again.
God bless,

Happy Father's Day

Jeff thinks he's adopted!
Jared & Mike "Son & Father"

It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home—it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.
Pride reinforces love.

Happy Father's Day fto Jeff from Mayzee!

Mayzee says Happy Fathers Day DAD! Thanks for putting up with all my biting, and loving me so much! I can't wait to hike with you soon in CA~

Happy Father's Day Jared~

Your the best DAD! -Love Sky

Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day DAD! You are the best. I love you~
