Spring has sprung, and summer is almost here.

Well, I have been meaning to blog for some time, but just haven't taken the time to do it. We Gardner's in Mesa are all doing fine and have enjoyed the nice mild weather Arizona has had this spring. We enjoyed seeing a green desert on our annual spring break hike in March. We went to the "JESUS THE CHRIST" EASTER PAGEANT in April. Of course there was school and work. As the school year has drawn near to the end we enjoyed attending concert and musicals. John is playing the bass in the advanced orchestra at his school. Bethany starred in a musical called "We the People" about the United States Constitution. LeeAnn was one of the student directors for that production. LeeAnn went to the Prom this spring. Chris has spent the last four months at Army Basic Training Camp in Ft. Benning, Georgia and graduated on May 20th. We're happy to have him back in Mesa. Well, that's it in a nutshell. There are pictures below that show these happenings.
