We got to participate in the ride for Fallen Officers last Sunday. It started in Lehi and ended at the Capitol. I don't think we knew how many motorist were going to be riding until we got there (4500 total). The Utah Highway Patrol and Police Department do this to raise money for the families that loose a loved one while serving.
So, here we are hanging out with the Harley dudes in our church clothes. We were a little out of place, but we all know what a soft spot Harley dudes have for good causes--at least that's what the movies portray.
Micah was given a badge
The rover got a special badge too! This baby got us to the front of the line. We felt like the President!
Behind us you could see for miles all of the motorcycles!
At the Capitol, we found Dan's name.
The kids made themselves useful by passing out water bottles to the bikers. It made me smile to see these tough guys and my kids meet through the delivery of water bottles.
They also pitches a flag for Dan too.
I think Dan would have been proud of his son. Thank you Dan for having such a fine son for me to marry. In some way, I think I owe it to you for getting us to meet. Dan Harris passed away this day August 25th, 1982
