As many of you know, Paul's 91 year old mother passed away last week. Her funeral was held on Monday, which meant that our family began to gather last Thursday, after all it was a holiday weekend, which, for all practical purposes meant it was a perfect time to get together. This picture is just a small indication of what we did to keep 17 grandchildren entertained and 14 adults from going crazy. This was our trial run for our family reunion at Brian Head the last week of this month. Our house was full, and our hearts were touched with the fact that all of our kids would make the effort to come on such short notice. Great memories were made, and goodbyes were said to a Grandmother who was so excited to be done with her challenges in this life. I just thought you might like to know why I have been slacking off on the Blog.
