The summer: family edition

This summer was full of fun. I have not blogged about any of it. So here goes. This is the family portion of the summer. Our family went to Thanksgiving Point and to Yellowstone. More family time than we are used to, and we are all still friends. Good news. I know the pictures are not in order, but I am not going to do anything about it.

Connor didn't want to get his hands dirty so he ate his ice cream sandwich off the table. My laughing might have been an encouragement. I am a good aunt.

Hilary braved the cold water to entertain the kids. She is better than the rest of us.

Annie playing at the lake at Yellowstone.

My dad, the photographer.

The Jr Park Rangers. Turns out that pants are not a required part of the uniform.

One of my favorite pics from the trip.

Cute Ellie and Hilary.

This picture does not do justice to the dirtiness that was Nathan.

The four kids, who refuse to all smile at the same time.

Ah, cute. These two were all about holding hands.

Chris and his boys.

Greg and Ellie.

Downward Dog by Nathan.


It is important to get very very close to the flowers with the magnifying glass.

Again with the hand holding.

Chris and Nathan and the golf cart.

Examining the flowers.
