I love this quote!

I found this quote on a friends blog-Thanks Jodi!- and I love it. I have read it before, but it's always nice to be reminded of great thoughts from great people.

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes,my hair expertly coiffed,and with long,perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Shenks lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."-Marjorie Hinckley

Ok, I thought this one was cute. If you don't have any memories, give me your first impression of me.

1. Leave one memory that you and I had together, as a comment on my blog. Anything goes :)

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll check to see if you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Emma's 8th Birthday!

Emma turned 8 on June 24, but we saved the big party for the 28th, the day we baptized her. David and I felt bitter-sweet about it because she's our last one to get baptized.

Emma and her Daddy.

Happy Birthday to You!

Grandma and Grandpa Coach(Giovando) and Sarah.
