Taron liked this shirt that one falconer had on- the front said something like "Raptors Rule" I think. This table is full of all the goods Stephen got donated for the club raffle- some really nice items specific to the sport. Stephen was really impressed with how white this gyr was- these kinds of birds are really rare and expensive! And I liked this pic of a couple of falconry vehicles- makes me realize my husband's method ain't all bad!

Coop playing with a balloon at the banquet, which Stephen held at the Dimond Family Barn- it is really a neat place that has been set up for all kinds of events and reunions and what not. Stephen went to the effort this year of organizing a smoked tri-tip and dutch oven dinner, with the help of Uncle Bob and some falconer friends. Everyone raved about the great food.
Our friend Holly (a falconer friend's wife and falconer herself) holding Ryder at the banquet. He is so cuddly looking!
Sunday was also our ward's primary program and the boys did great participating! Stephen had been asked quite awhile ago if he would participate with a small group of men in singing part of a song during the program. It would have been easy for him to make his falconry event a bigger priority than church, and he even had several fellow falconers try to convince him not to go, but he showed up and sang. I am so proud and blessed to be your wife, Stephen- thank you for being great!
