Family Weekend

Rachel arrived home Friday afternoon, and Emma and Vinnie arrived Saturday evening, with Isla and Clark.  We gathered at my Mom's house yesterday to do our annual family photos.  These are getting harder to do, but I love the results!

 Kamryn is the oldest of the cousins and loved holding Clark and playing with Isla.

 Kyle enjoyed Clark, too!  

 Lindsay sent me this photo and I love it.  You can't tell but Rachel's legs are over on Sarah and Kyle and Kamryn are sitting on them, Isla was over having pictures taken, but did just fine.  I'm so proud of this bunch of young adults and little ones.  Amazing that these were the babies that God gave to Tim and I to raise!  Now they are beginning to raise their own babies.

I know this photo is blurry but it was so cute of Clark grinning at Grandpa!

Here is a video...

 I got to hold him while he went to sleep last night.  He is 6 months old now and we hadn't seen him in person since he was a week old!

Isla really liked the bouncy horse that we've had since Sarah was a baby.  Its still in great shape amazingly!

Our week looks mostly like this.  Visiting, playing, eating.  Those of us who have not seen the latest show, Jesus, at Sight and Sound theaters, are going later this week.  I'm very excited as I've heard its excellent!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


  1. Those fuzzy pictures are sometimes the very best ones we have and become treasures. Thank you for explaining the dynamics of the front row. I had been wondering about the red sneakers. 😁

    1. I didn’t even see those sneakers until I read your comment! I kept trying to figure out how Sarah was doing that!

  2. Sweet photo's, they're priceless!

  3. Busy, fun, happy, blessed weekend! I love it all!

  4. I love these photos of all your loves!! You captured so many sweet and special moments . . . and I am certain that there were many others that were not captured in photos but were captured in the heart! What a blessing to all be together!!
