On the March...


I was able to attend this year's Utah National Guard Governer's Day up at the University football stadium, and I have to say, the show was pretty impressive. Because JJ works for the Air National Guard, his commander-in-chief is the governer of the state of Utah, and each year, he does his "review of the troops". It was a sight to see and definitely made me feel 100% patriotic, and so proud to be part of a "military family".


Lining up before marching onto the football field (they had to stand in approx. 95 degree heat for over three hours - one and a half hours were at attention!)




I can tell which guy is JJ, but can you? :0)





I ran way high up in the stands to get this shot, and still was only able to capture about half of the field.




JJ and Jerry with Ginger and I - all of us so thankful to finally be in the shade! This was Jerry's last Governer's Day with the Guard; he will be fully retired in about six months.

I admit I can not tell which is JJ but I am sure glad you can tell.
very cool that you got to go and watch. I know it probably made it much more enjoyable for him knowing that you were up there watching him....

Oh my gosh Erin! Wow, it's been a few years since we have ran into one another but I am excited to see another fellow Ellensburger with a blog! I found your blog through Teasley's blog! Congrats on your wedding, you were a beautiful bride! Good luck on your new business venture, that is so exciting. I am going to add you to my blog list so I can follow your blog now:) P.S. I visited SLC for the first time this year (wrote about it on our blog back in Feb. I think) and just fell in love with that place! We traveled there for my husband to do some electrical testing. Have a great weekend! katie (wilson) mayer

Is that REALLY you Chaaaaahs? I'm so excited!! Apparently us Eburgers are snoopy and find each other by stalking other people's blogs - I found you while perusing Katie's! JJ is super cute, as are your animals, and I am just so happy you've found your happiness! Say hi to your momma and my love, Brock, for me!
