Back again! Without much to say or write about. Have been very busy with work and family. Had Rachel and her family up for the 4th of July weekend and that was nice. My baby sister had been here from Colorado the week before that and really enjoyed seeing her again and spending time with both my older and younger sisters. Funny how you don't realize how important they are to you until you get older. Sure wish I could spend more time with both of them. Went shopping with my older sister last Saturday and talked and talked and talked some more. Funny how we never seem to run out of things to talk about. the only thing that would have made it perfect is if our younger sister could have joined us for the shopping trip!

Partial Family Photo

I guess this is the closest we will get to getting the entire family in one picture. One son is missing with his fiancee and 3 more of his children and 2 of hers. I always set my expectation's too high for success.

The photographer, who just happens to be my daughter, took this using a timer and her tripod. Needless to say, she had to be very quick on her feet to make it into the photo before the camera went off. She's the one standing in the back on the right in a white shirt. I'm very proud of her........she does a great job. She got some awesome shots of the different family groups who wanted portraits too, and did a photo shoot of my grand daughter, Amber. I will post some of those at a different time.

I am pressed for time again.....getting to be my new normal lately.........and must go...........but I will be back.........eventually!
