It was the horse's fault!

Natalie & Julia went horseback riding a few weeks ago. It was the first time for both. Brother Brown & Brother Dickson brought their horses to the Branch Campout and let the youth each have a turn.



Julia, Natalie & cousin Ally


Here Julia and Natalie at the lake. Natalie actually was able to kayak all the way across the lake all by herself! I had a hard time keeping up with her!

Palin & Hillary Address the Nation on SNL

The Case for Proposition 8

I will try to be concise, but I am so passionate about this issue.

California voters passed Proposition 22 in 2000 by more than 61%, saying that a marriage in California is between a man and a woman. Earlier this year, four activist judges based in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people's vote, legalizing same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage did not just overturn the will of California voters; it also redefined marriage for the rest of society, without ever asking the people themselves to accept this decision. This decision has far-reaching consequences.

Vote YES on Proposition 8 to overturn the outrageous Supreme Court decision and restore the definition of marriage that was approved by over 61% of voters.

The Divine Institution of Marriage article in the above link discusses the LDS church's position and gives some great insight as to Tolerance, Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Freedom.

Even if you don't live in California, you can donate to Protect Marriage and contribute to the passing of Prop 8. As goes California, so goes the rest of the country.... At some point your state will face this issue as many states already have.

Below is a great video discussing the ramifications in changing the definition of marriage, specifically referring to Prop 8. This video was made by the American Family Association.

My mom likes to find old VHS movies at the thrift store and give them to the girls to watch. This old Mary-Kate and Ashley video is a hit with Julia. She loves it!!!!!! The video Julia is watching is Your Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's Sleepover Party. Her favorite song is Dare to Dance.... (She even sings along!!)
