Happy 8Oth Birthday To Granny!


I have just returned home from my mother's 80th Birthday Celebration. Mom had been diagnosed with pneumonia earlier in the week, so we were keeping our hopes up that she would improve enough to have the celebration and she did! Here are some photos from our celebration:
Tara and Sophie were able to go with us and this is our first 4 generation photo of the 4 of us:

This is Granny with all of the Great Grand kids that were there- we were only missing Mya! :-(

Here is Granny and her immediate family that was there. Pictured behind me, Tara and Sophie are Robbie and her family: Her husband Richard, Dale and Que Brown and their daughter, Nevaeh and son Aidan, Jeremy Brown and his son, Connor.

Lastly, I took a DVD with us for Granny that contained good wishes from her family members, who couldn't come: Scott, Mandy, Roger, Mya, Bryson, Cory and Tyler. It also included a special guest appearance by Elder Jared Lewis from Taiwan. Here is his video tribute:

Visitors From Texas


Tara, Bryson and Sophie came out to visit us for a few days in June.


They spent a few days with Bryson's family reunion at Jeremy Ranch, and then came down our way to the Southern Utah Heat. It got up to 106* while they were here. We had breakfast with Cory and Tyler right before we left for Kayenta. (Mya is 20 1/2 months and Sophie is 5 1/2 months in these photos!)




Mandy and Mya came down for the weekend too.
Here are a few shots from our adventures:
Pool Time:


Mya loved pushing Sophie in her stroller:


Of course, photographer Mandy had to take glamour shots of our models:








Not every picture was magazine material however:


There is nothing quite like having grandchildren!
Grandchildren fill a space in your heart that you never knew was empty!
