If it reflects light, it could be water.

South Jordan 2004 Family Reunion

Remember the bounce house?

South Jordan 2004 Family Reunion

It was awesome! Uncle/Grandpa Bob got a bounce house for our reunion. The kids had a great time. They jumped to their hearts' content.

The cooks' dialogue

Cedar City 2006 Family Reunion
We worry ourselves over the direction leading news syndicates are pulling the nation; however; we forget that the power of the news media doesn't hold a candle to the high impact of the information highway that flows through the kitchens of America. No media can ever "pull the wool" over Brianna and Chantel's eyes.

As Edward's eyes met mine.......

Sometimes sweet, innocent looking, young-appearing men hold a world of secrets and lies in their haunted eyes.

So? If I had a cupcake, I'd be happy too.

Cedar City 2006 Family Reunion

This research project was very conclusive; people definitely enjoy a cupcake more if they decorate it themselves.

South Jordan 2004 Family Reunion
There will always be those who do not do well with others, nor do they enjoy the finer things associated with social norms such as tables, chairs, and eating utensils. Their gatherings are typified by secret combinations and special hand signs.

Sometimes photographs only supply clues.

South Jordan 2004 Family Reunion
There's more going on here than Rich singing and strumming his guitar. Watch the details. Notice both Rich and Craig's right feet are in the elevated position. See how Craig's arms are basically down, hovering slightly forward from their intended position lower over the hips. I can't identify the young lad probably sent by his dad to rapidly remove the two chairs from behind Craig and Rich. Could this be for their own safety? If you haven't already figured it out, Rich and Craig are doing the River Dance and a dandy job of it, I must say.

Who shrunk everyone?

These pictures are from our 2004 Family Reunion in Utah, that's why all the kids look like they are getting smaller. It's not because they because they are leaving.

What will change in the Whitehouse actually mean?

Steve expounds on how changes from both Obama and McCain will mean major changes in our own personal freedoms. His somber warnings emphasis the importance of following the counsel of the First Presidency to study the issues and candidates very carefully.

La Connor

Can you find "FURUNO" in both pictures?
Can you find three children's drinking cups in one of the pictures?
Can you find a turquoise pickup truck in both pictures?
Can you find a skipper at the wheel in one of the pictures?

A happy reunion.

After hours of searching for Craig, Chantal was elated to find he had been napping behind to the very log they had passed countless times.

Gravity only pulls you in one direction.

Alec seemed to be able to deal with the down hill slope; however; thanks to Uncle Andy, Breille was held securely in place.

A changing world.

If one didn't know better, today's gloves could easily be confused for a type of shoe.

Gosh, there were so many.

Jacob asked Matthew how many soccer goals he scored last season. Matthew did his best to recount them all.

Friday, October 3, 2008

It's a matter of a simple adjustment.

Alec shows Chantal how to reset her camera to stop it from taking pictures upside down.

Who's listening?

As Alana tells her strange tale of how she was attacked by a bizarre mosquito just above her right elbow, Anna waited patiently in the background, skeptically listening, committed to hold her tongue.

Hiking, an international experience.

We met many interesting people from all over the world on the hiking trails. This was an interesting young man that, as best we could understand, came from Braunschweig, Germany. He likes America very much and hopes to meet Jerry Lewis. He was most excited because he was about to learn how to parasail form of the gun battery at Fort Eby that afternoon.

Downtown Seattle

We also made a stop at downtown Seattle and visited the Public Market at Pike's Place and watched the flying fish at the fish market, then chowed down on fish and chips.

Wait a minute . . . wasn't the water line up to here?

A group of us took a side trip to the Chittenden Locks that connect Lake Union in Seattle with the open seas. It was fascinating to watch the boats change levels.

What kind of ferry is this?

Lia looked under every cushion on the ferry, but was puzzled when she couldn't find any money. She had always heard the tooth ferry leaves money under your pillow.
