Alex at her baptism

A "before" and "after" picture of Alex at her baptism. "Let's get comfortable!" she says, getting out of that white dress in case she wants to get dirty!

Jack enjoys the "Huntington Kindergardens"

Thursday afternoon Jack asked me to take him to the "Huntington Kindergardens" where he had a great time collecting sticks and leaves and rocks, chasing ducks, spotting fish, and, of course, getting wet!

Four generations of family and friends gathered for a four-day celebration of Mom's 90th birthday! Great good fun was had by all - oldest to youngest, and inbetween! Thank you, Chris, for organizing this wonderful event!

Cowboy Country with Trey

Trey and I spent a week in "Cowboy Country" - from Mt. Rushmore to the Grand Titons, exploring Yellowstone, fishing, going through old gold mines, riding horses, rafting - and even doing a community service project for the National Park Service (we painted - can you tell?!!)... It was great good fun!
