Highway Partol Banquet

Last Wednesday Mom, Dad, Brandon and I all went to the Highway Patrol Banquet up in Ogden because Brandon was receiving a scholarship from them. We met Grandma and Grandpa Brown and Breeanna and Tanner up there too. We had dinner and a program by the Highway Patrol. My Grandpa Brown is a retired Highway Patrol so we get to go to the banquet with him. Before the dinner they had a Table of Honor set for the Highway Patrols who had lost their lives while in the serves. It was really neat to see all the things the Highway Patrol does for the community and everyone around them. I had a lot of fun and very proud of Brandon for getting the scholarship. Some of the pictures are kind of dark sorry.

Girls State 2009

I haven't had much time to blog. I went to Girls State the first week in June and it was a lot of fun too. I met new people and had a great experience. I was in Clyde City with 27 other girls by the first day we all became like sisters and really close with each other coming from different backgrounds. My counselor was Cary Fisher aka Mama Leah, she was awesome and was like our mom for the week. The theme of Girl State this year was "Believe" meaning to believe in yourself and your country. I loved going to Girls State and learned a lot new things about the government and gain a better respect for the Soldiers who are fighting for our freedom. Thanks Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa Brown for giving me the opportunity to go to Girls State.

I'll get more pictures of Girls State this was just a few I had of graduation.
