Remembering Grandpa Brown

Nine years ago, January 13, 2003, we lost our Grandpa Brown.
Life has marched on and children have grown,
but the memory of Grandpa Brown will always remain.

We rode our bikes to the cemetary
to pay tribute to him, his life and legacy.

2011 was a year of wonderful and memorable milestones!

Brett and Tia became engaged on January 27th!

We survived our Stake Pioneer Trek in June.
(I can now check that off the bucket list!)

Clark and Bennett had the time of their lives at basketball camp in Prescott.
They were both awarded "The Hustler" award for their age groups.

Bennett participated in Swim Team

 Cassidy loved hanging out in Provo with the cousins and Grandpa and Grandma
and enjoyed the 4th of July celebrations

We enjoyed a quick get away to La Jolla the end of July

 Katie, one of Haley's best friends, had the missionary discussions
 in our home and then Curt baptized her on August 16th

Endured some brutally hot football games during September,
 but it was all worth it to see Clark in action.
He was named MVP for the team!

Haley kept us entertained coming out of the anthesia
 after having her wisdom teeth pulled in September

Bennett tore it up on the basketball court wearing #31 for the Poston Panthers!

Cassidy had a busy couple of months working on homecoming
and then had a blast at the dance with all of her friends!

Clark played in his first varsity football game AND SCORED A TOUCHDOWN!
(Cassidy said she was famous after that game for just being Clark's sister!)

Haley got all decked out to go to the Taylor Swift concert in October

Cassidy planned, organized and attended Winter Formal
and did a fabulous job at all of it!

Cassidy and Clark attended Winter Formal
This was Clark's first school dance and he had a blast with date, Ashlynn

Bennett got his braces off after almost 3 years!

Bennett turned 14 in December and was ordained to the office of teacher.

A goldendoodle named Echo.

Can hardly wait to see what 2012 has in store for the Brown Family!
