My dad worked at the copper mine in Morenci, AZ for 28 years. Between Phelps Dodge and working on the farm, he worked hard to support our family of 10. Although I didn't see him a whole lot, I know that him working so much was his way of showing his family how much he loved us. I'm so grateful for the example he showed me- How to be a hard worker and save every penny! P.D. (or Freeport) had a retirement party for my dad at Brick's Restaurant in Safford.

Almost everyone was able to come (2 brothers & Eliana missing)
Eliana's silly face!
We went back up to Mesa Sunday evening and stayed for a birthday party on Monday. It was for Brandon's brother and Grandma.
The Johnson Family
It sure was a lot of fun being with family over the weekend. One of my most favorite things to do is just sit and visit with the people I love most-- FAMILY. I love you guys and feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful family-- both Donaldson and Johnson.
