I don't know why I have not posted this blog entry.  It has been on preview mode for weeks...OK months.  I haven't blogged in a while either for some strange reason, since I like to do it as a sort of journal for me. Let's just say, I am starting again and I hope you do too.  I see some of my friends and family that have blogs, haven't been blogging either.  I truly enjoy hearing about your lives and the "life happens" moments.  I know it takes time, but let's get going again.  I like Instagram and Facebook but it is less personal and passes all too quickly.

Anyway, here are some photos of our trip to Wyoming.  We took Colett and her girls Isabelle and Millie with us and Amy and Wes and their kiddos went to.  We got to visit with my parents, our friends in Wyoming and my siblings.  I cherish these things so it's nice to have some of those moments in photos. I don't have a camera right now so these are all just camera photos.  Not the best, but not the worst.

This is a creek by 5 Springs at the base of the mountains that we love and have been to so many times.  I want my back yard to look like this and to sound like this.

When we were in the Big Horn Mountains, Emerson looked up and thought that the mountain looked like a bear.  Well of course it does.  It even has a mouth and and eye.  I had never noticed this before.  Leave it to a little child to notice those things.

Here is a photo of myself,  my daughter Amy, my daughter Colett and my sister Margaret.  We are at the parade for Pioneer Day.  

My cousin Ed WIllis and his son Kole.

My friend Maurine, my friend Brenda and her husband Randy (my adopted little brother) and my real brother Greg.  I keep telling him to lose the beard because he is hiding his really handsome face, but it hasn't worked.

My daughter Amy, my hubby Wayne, my daughter Colett and her two daughters Isabelle (12) and Millie (9) and last but not least my "special" son in law Wes, who more than once has done this pose when I take a photo.  He's lucky I didn't crop him out.

My tiniest grandchild Era (age 1) and Emerson (age 5)...and in the background, the little photo bomber Millie

My nieces Lucy and Natalie and my nephew Ben, throwing candy

The whole gang

I will do part two later this week when I get all my photos organized.  That has been a chore project this past                            week but I think I am seeing the end.

I have been thinking of starting up again too. I captured so much of our lives when Emerson was tiny and I feel like I'm missing those opportunities with Era. It makes me sad that blogging has become obsolete because I used to really enjoy it, as well.

Glad you're back to blogging. I have thought about it, but whenever I try to come up with something blog worthy I draw a blank. I introduced myself to your Amy in Cowley, what a sweet and pretty girl! I wish I would have been able to visit with you more.

I have felt the same pull. Maybe there was something about Conference that got to us. . . but I can't remember! I love seeing what is happening with your family.

Ah! I finally got around to READING your blog. . . let alone writing in mine. But I have to admit, I enjoyed the little bits. How come we don't see each other when we are so close! I think I am too busy working, or you get to travel too much. :-) xo
