What a great day!

Last Saturday our family along with Grandma and Grandpa Ferguson, Uncle Shawn, Aunt Carol, Brooke, Taylor, Madi and Stevie were able to make a day trip to Mt. Rushmore! What an awesome experience. Gutzon Borglum originally wanted to make a western carving on the mountain! I am so glad he changed his mind. We now have a great monument of our founding forefathers. I can not imagine the work that went into this monument. But Mr. Nick Clifford can!

We were so lucky to have been able to meet the only worker still alive. Mr. Nick Clifford was here today signing a question answer book about his experience. He was quite a fascinating man to talk with. He told Jordan that he is almost 85 years old. That put him on the job at 17.

The kids worked hard to complete a workbook all about Mt. Rushmore. Here they are at their official Jr. Forest Ranger swearing in.

Oh... did I say the kids worked hard... I mean really the adults worked just as hard... if not harder!
