November 2nd, 2005

This month has made Tony a year older and little wiser. We were treated like royalty at Fort Union's Bucca di Beppo where we sat in the kitchen and the chef served us fantastic mashed potatoes. They have the best Italian food. Everything is served family style, and they certainly know our family because the portions are huge! If you ever get the chance to go, I definitley recommend the tortellini.

On Wednesday we had Benjamin, Leah, Andy, Laurie, Cody, Ashley, Scott, Kacee and of course Taryn over for pumpkin pie and ice cream. Tony certainly is loved by some great people.

Cathleen ni Houlihan and Deirdre

An Evening of W.B. Yeats Plays
He is best known for his staring role in Mrs. Fisher's 4th grade class' redition of George Washington, but for English 384R Tony was in two plays, both written by Yeats. In the first play, Cathleen ni Houlihan, he portrays, "Peter Gillane." This play compares Ireland to an old woman as well as a beautiful queen, and the almost mystical appeal of fighting for Ireland's freedom.
The second play, Deirdre, Tony played, "A dark-faced executioner." Deirdre has been declared as the founding myth of Ireland. It is a story of passion and devotion fighting against defeat and oppression.

This is the second video for our Hines Mansion trip. It's a beautiful B&B in Provo. They had REAL cable and I watched a lot of the food channel.

Fall at Bridal Veil Falls

A couple weeks ago we took a little stroll through Bridal Veil Park, we seem to have missed the fall folliage, but it was still very beautiful. It's such a beautiful place that is very dear to our hearts, it's really one of the prettiest spots in Utah Valley.
