The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Our First Family Trip to Pinecrest
Coming home from Calaveras Big Trees we went through Columbia and Sonora and then back up into the mountains for our first family trip to Pinecrest Reservoir. It was crowded, and parking was limited. We arrived at about 12:30 on a Thursday. It is very beautiful, and has a long stretch of beech, so the lake is able to accommodate big crowds. The water was cold to get into, but after getting in it felt nice and didn't seem that cold. Sheri and Miranda swam out to the buoys. I swam a bit, as did Tony.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
