The Leonardo Gala
Above, an amazing art sculpture that hangs from the ceiling of the Leo.
Below, my brother Tai and I at the formal Gala. Steve was flying home from Florida, and was sadly unable to attend.
I had the opportunity to a Formal Gala for the ribbon cutting opening ceremony at Utah's newest Museum, The Leonardo. My sister-in-law has worked long and hard for years to help it open. After hearing from the Mayor, the Governor and a Nobel Laurette, the museum was opened for us for a preview. The Leo is a science and art museum, that I can't wait to bring my kids to experience.
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
