A Little History:
Our story begins in Pocatello, Idaho, circa 1972, when the lovely Debby Christensen agreed to a first, though fateful date with admirer, David Croshaw. Long story-short, he bade her follow him, and they went arm-in-arm to the Logan, Utah temple for establishment of an eternal family unit, Generation 1, on May 23 1973.

From their first blissful summer in Salt Lake City, educational pursuits took them to Provo/Orem, Utah, birthplace of Leslie and Rebecca, and to San Francisco/Oakland California, birthplace of Colin and Matt. Then, for establishment of livelihood, expansion of the tribe with Abby and Dana, and for raising/unifying of Generation 2, it was back to the roots in Pocatello for a rewarding sojourn.

In time, driven by a raging, but commonly shared sense of adventure and independence, one-by-one, Generation 2 escaped the homeland to distant regions of the country and the world, each ultimately developing their own tribal expansions by pairing with worthy mates and initiating Generation 3.

Now sensing fulfillment of their purpose in Pocatello, Generation 1 has also left those roots and transplanted to Cascade Idaho, from which base, they anticipate more abundant contact with The Posterity, Generations 2 and 3, in the future. That contact however, awaits fulfillment of a call to LDS missionary service in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, wherein they hope to help the state of the world by sharing the love of Jesus Christ.

So now, including Generation 0 (Grandma and Grandpa Christensen) home base includes Yuma, Arizona, Pocatello, Idaho, Cascade, Idaho, Vancouver, BC, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Spokane, Washington, Boise, Idaho, Los Angeles, California, back to Boise, Idaho, and on and on (Generation 3+) to infinity.

Our Mission Statement:
This is the blog of our eternal family unit. Initiated years ago, it served well as a journal, but even more so, as an archive of our personal interaction. It was a gathering place, a confabulation instrument, a unifying force for four generations of widely dispersed and progressively prolific posterity, and their valued associates. Though it served these purposes well for many years, it eventually took a back seat to new-kids-on-the-block, Facebook, and Instagram, and was sadly forgotten.

We now move to resurrect this blog with an added functional purpose of archiving the missionary experiences of Generation 1, of their movements and activities as they participate with The Gathering of Israel in the land northward. In so doing, we hope that via their own comments and posts, this blog will again serve to gather and unify the posterity and their friends.

As in the past, that the young and vibrant may know the old and tired, that enduring bonds may be fostered and maintained, that experience and encouragement may be openly shared, that posterity may embrace truth, and that hearts may be knit together, we must resist detachment despite our geographic divergence. We shall do so here.

Wich one do you like it best? and why?




Crystal said...

I like the whole "vitamin T" thing. The coloring and name remind me a LOT of Baja Fresh, but not as much with the chili pepper. I vote for...

the very first one

Colin & Lori said...

I like the 3rd one down with both sayings in the oval

Jason and Dana said...

I vote for the first one as well. It totally got my attention and made me want a taco. And the vitamin t thing made me smile.

David and Debby said...

i like the sayings in the oval too. also, but i also like the one on the truck. will there be more colors on the truck? did you get the photo of the new painting on el herradero? actually, will the oval be enough for the whole truck? i really do like the taco fresh logo. i can see that i am really not a lot of help. i'll think about it some more.

David and Debby said...

I like the oval also, but maybe that's because I'm into symmetry. The oval looks to me like it would stand out well on the side of the truck. I also like the green hue and the red "fresh" (emphasis)which also blends well with the red chili. I love the vitamin T thing, but I think it is also a good idea to note that it is AUTHENTIC Mex. Very cool - all of it. Can't wait to get my dose.

David and Debby said...

PS: By the way, now that little Lola is so close, I think it's time for the Esparzas have their own blog. We would all like access to the pending photo galleries of Lola, TacoFresh, landscaping, etc. What does everyone else think?

Leslie said...

Thank you everyone we appreciate all the feedback

Eat more tacos!


Colin & Lori said...

If you did the oval one you could make car stickers just like that. I want one for my car.

I like the first one best. I just really like the simplicity of it. It caught my eye. It's like Google's home page - less is more. I also love the vitamin T phrase - it totally adds some fresh personality.

rebeccaV said...

Oh I want one for my car, too!! I also like the first one.

Jason and Dana said...

By the way, I love the tag line, "Eat more tacos!" You cute put that under TacoFresh.
