While I Was Away!

A trip down memory lane:

My dear Saint Brian went through about 7,000 photos on our computer to make room for the 3,000 I took while in Arizona.
He deleted, fixed, focused, downloaded to disc and to mini hard-drive, documenting our last year in pictures.

Daily we enjoy the computer slideshow.
It is often that I find the kids
watching their lives in pictures
at the computer desk,
njoying the memories.
I lose time her
e as well, and yet,
the lost time is priceless
as I recount the many memories;
artwarming memories,
that we have made.

Here are Brian's new picks [past years and present] for our slideshow!

Just Hanging out!

Red River Ranch
and Capitol Reef
We hung out with Gavin
at Miller Sports Park
while he was working
for Dyson Racing.

He was there for 6 days, overnight,
helping the team with odds and ends.

He is a hard worker,
and the invitation from this group
is such an honor
and based on his work ethic.

Below he and his buddy Josh are

with the team.

A VERY happy DAY!

I am going to play on Gavin's Team!!!

Moons ago...but such fun.
Camping in Capitol Reef.
I think Brian loves these photos
because he missed this trip.
We called him often but
it was me and the kids camping.
He worried about us alone...
we missed him at home...
As much as we love camping,
we would rather be camping with daddy!

We are a Happy Family...

that keep us living,

“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
