Together Forever…

Or at least for the weekend.

One of the added benefits of coming to Idaho for a wedding was the opportunity for most of my immediate family to be together. We were missing one of my sister-in-law’s, my Dad’s wife and a couple of cousins…and the newlyweds were off on their honeymoon.

The rest of us had fun just hanging out

and doing a little fishing.

Even with the big age gap the cousins still have fun together.

These are the cousins lined up from youngest to oldest


L-R: Ham, LaLa, Chloe, Roo, Einstein, Emma, Big J, Aubrey, Brady, McKay, (Ryan), (Elder Derek), Chad, Kira, (Josh) and (Brandi); Grandpa is standing watch over his brood.

Then we had to rearrange by height.


It was pretty close between Chad and Brady on who was tallest. But Chad has him by 5 years and half a millimeter. I think Kira was pretty kind to McKay and kept her knees bent.

We had to take one more picture of my Dad and his kids. My Dad, my brothers and I have very similar hands. We let my sister join the circle even if she doesn’t have fat fingers like the rest of us.



  1. We really are lucky...
    but should I be worried that Mom and Bruce and I have hands alike and they are "no longer with us" yes...DEAD???
    No, no worries!!!
    Love you

  2. Looks like you've been having a fabulous time!
