Happy 29th Anniversary!

Marilee Hatch + Mark Lee Cahoon
Married June 27, 1981
Hawaii Temple

I bet we were married a whole 30 minutes in this picture. How romantical!

We had a traditional luau for our recepetion with all the fixings, which of course, included kalua pig along with hula dancers and the traditional "Hawaiian Wedding Song" sung by a friend.

It was my father's birthday the same day. I just had a weird thought. In this picture my father just turned 51 and I am 50 right now. That's weird!

Happy Anniversary Mark, I love you!

Mothers & Daughters

Last week Mark came home from his High Counsel meeting and showed me this video. It didn't take me long to figure out why they showed it during their meeting. Lauren Smith and her mom are in it. Lauren is Michelle's age and is in our ward. She has health struggles due to her Cystic Fibrosis, but is doing well now because of a lung transplant she had almost a year ago. She is the first girl you see in the video.

The Twins are 50!

That does not sound good to me at all. 50? Where did all those years go anyway? But it must be true because I have black and white photos of me, so yah, I must be old. Ok, old-er.

To celebrate the big 5-0, Lou Lou and I took a road trip to St. George to visit our father. To have us there, he said, seemed like we were teenagers living at home again. A very nice thought.

We were born 30 years apart which means he turns 80 this year, June 27th to be exact.

I was born first so why is Lou Lou's name before mine? I know it's a silly thing to wonder about, but first is first when it comes to twins.

We decided to stop in Santaquin to visit our mother on our way to St. George. There is a restaurant named, The Family Tree, that serves the biggest scones ever so we thought we would enjoy the sunshine together. And yes, I took lots of pictures of Openshaw headstones for genealogy and we also took pictures of some of the homes that are still standing that relate to our family from way back when.

We had a great time doing whatever, whenever we wanted. The only thing we didn't do was eat Mexican food. Not bad.
