Who Doesn't Love The Zoo!

Last weekend I traveled north to spend some much needed time with my daughter Ivy and her family. We got up early on Saturday morning and then traveled into Salt Lake to spend the day at Hogle Zoo. Oh my........and what fun we did have!

Listen carefully to the little voice in your head. Your gut feelings are triggered by red flags and intuition is being able to trust yourself enough to do what is right!

Home Sweet Home

Elder Jesse Tyler Mackay is home from Africa! How wonderful it has been to follow his missionary service for "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". Thank you dear sweet Mama Dawn for sharing all of Jesse's ups and downs, trials and tribulations and joys and sorrows.

Thank you Jesse for the sacrifice that you have made to share the gospel with all those who have been waiting for it! Reading his many letters and emails have been such a great spiritual support to me and again, I thank you for sharing. What a wonderful young man and such an example of selfless love to spread the an apostle of our Lord and Savior....
Jesus Christ!

Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Mass.

Visiting Mount Auburn was amazing and for a seasoned genealogist, it is a dream come true. Mom and I spent seven hours here and it was one of the best days ever! Thanks Mama....I love it that we love so many of the same things!

Mount Auburn Cemetery was founded in 1831 as "America's first garden cemetery", or the first "rural cemetery", with classical monuments set in a rolling landscaped terrain. The appearance of this type of landscape coincides with the rising popularity of the term "cemetery," which etymologically traces its roots back to the Greek for "a sleeping place."

More than 93,000 people are buried in the cemetery as of 2003. A number of historically significant people have been interred there since its inception, particularly members of the Boston Brahmins and the Boston elite associated with Harvard University as well as a number of prominent Unitarians.

Mount Auburn's collection of over 5,500 trees includes nearly 700 species and varieties. Thousands of very well-kept shrubs and herbaceous plants weave through the cemetery's hills, ponds, woodlands, and clearings. The cemetery contains more than 10 miles (17 km) of roads and many paths.
