Bonnie, Jared and I drove up to Cheryl's house and Spent the weekend with them. On Friday, we went to Disneyland with Cheryl and Allie and Jared's friend Jessica. It was a very relaxing day as we just spent the day with Allie. It was a little warm but was not crowded at all. I usually take most of the pictures so I am rarely in one. Bonnie volunteered to take pictures with me and Allie so she would know that she did have a Grandpa. Bon did a great job.

Of course I had to have my shot too.

( Allie wasn't too thrilled about this ).
It was a little warm so Allie and Grandma played in the water.
Well, we finally finished Jared's Eagle project! The project consisted of fabricating and installing backpack racks on the walls outside of the classrooms at Highlands Elementary School. Also, 4 portable rolling racks were built to accommodate rooms with no wall space. One of the other boys in our ward did this same project a few months ago and the school contacted his dad about finishing the rest of the classes. He told us about it and the project just kind of fell into our laps. Jared called a counselor from a list to receive approval for the project and the counselor invited him over the same day and approved it. That is practically unheard of. We had a great turnout with 26 people participating.

I got rid of my table saw a while back so I had to
do some dado work with a skill saw. Not easy.
Assembling the rolling racks.
Drilling the pilot holes in the "Trex" boards.
This template was provided by the school and helped speed
up the drilling process. It still took many hours to drill all
We cut the bracing from 1/2" plywood.

This is one of the old racks that we replaced. Notice the
pointy ends right at eye level.
This was another version that we replaced.
Here the safe hooks are being installed on the Trex boards.
