Page and I went to our first Pitchfork Steak Cook out. It was pretty good. They take steak and stick it on a pitchfork and then set it in a big vat of hot oil over a fire. The steak gets seared really fast and it is juicy and tender. They also marinated the steaks all day long so they had a wonderful flavor. We went with our friends Roger and Sina. It was a fundraiser for the local swim team. I think I'm going to have to do this again next time I hear they are pulling out the pitchforks.

After Sacrament Meeting at Church onSunday, they passed out big bottles of Dad's Root Beer to all the Fathers. I thought that was pretty awesome. Lacey also got me a big can of honey roasted peanuts.
We took a drive to Big Horn Canyon. It's only about 30 minutes from our house. They have a wild herd of horses there that are protected. These wild mustangs were left by the Spaniards. Last year Sean and I came up here and didn't see any horses. On Sunday we saw a herd of them. I was really excited.
I love this view. I wanted to show it to Page and Lacey. We are standing above Devil's Canyon looking south on Big Horn Lake. Page surprised me with tickets to take a 2 hour excursion on this lake. So I will be down there in a boat soon.
This is looking north. I love how the canyon is long and narrow and filled in by water. Part of it is in Wyoming and the other part in Montana.
And I did! We came home to BBQ ribs, homemade potato salad and baked beans. Page also made her famous chocolate sauce, just for me!!!, and poured it over vanilla ice cream and sliced bananas. It was so good.
Sean also sent me Happy Father's Day wishes earlier from Argentina by email. So overall I had a great day.

We also celebrated Sean's Birthday on the 24th. He turned 20 and is in Buenos Aires, Argentina, so we had a party without him, in his honor. Grandma Sherry, Page and I cut this beautiful cupcake into thirds and wished Sean a Happy Birthday many miles away.
Page's Mom turned 76 on May 28th. We took her to one of her favorite places to eat, The Cheesecake Factory in Huntington Beach
