Toni and Ryan's parents who just open up their hearts to everyone and are so enthusiastic!Rachel, and all of the girls looked so cute! I was so proud of them for being so brave!
Yes, I tastefully cut out my backside. It wouldn't be appropriate for headline news!
Here is the man of the day coming down facing forward, and running down the cliff. Thanks Ryan for all of your hard work, and giving of your time so that we could have a special day. We will miss your family. But don't worry we will come up and visit. Isn't there a river we have to rappel down into? smile. We wish you and your sweet family the best of luck! Your family is really an example of finding true joy in bringing happiness to others. We are trying to be just like you Gardner clan! So glad you are our friends.

In this pic they had just taken a marathon long bath in the big jet tub. They laughed and played for hours. This is when they got out and came into kelly's craft room. Lizzie exclaimed,"that was the best bath I have ever taken!"
this is how we usually find them. In dress up, hinding in some corner doing make-up or nails. Heaven! Kelly and I were off in our own corner. And while I am at it let me show you another group off in their own corner that I found when I took this picture.
I took it through the window of my Dad's house (that Kelly is living in). How cool to capture the moment of another set of cousins hanging out. These are the pictures that really are precious to me! This is a story that I want to remember always. oooh, how I love photography. ok that's all

An Indoor baseball stadium? Air conditioned? I've never seen such a thing. It still had all of the excitement, with the sounds of the game, bright lights, and smells. It was exciting. It has been awhile for me since I have been to a baseball game. Thanks to the Chowdury's who invited us! It was suite! As in we watched from a suite. Very cool. I just liked having a private clean bathroom close by. You know there are five of us girls.

It was so much fun to have another daughter this summer. My niece Kelsie. One of the things she really wanted to do was go to temple square in Salt Lake city. She went with us last summer and loved it so much. First we met up with some sister missionaries and had a tour. They were so sweet, and had such a strong spirit with them. We were all bawling the whole time we were with them.
After our tour we met up with more cousins to go and see the Joseph Smith movie, where we cried more. The smallest boy on the far right in this picture is my nephew Ian. He is an intense serious boy, who is exactly like my lawyer brother (his Dad) Brett. During the movie as the mobs were tar and feathering Joseph Smith he was so upset he was muttering to the movie with his angry serious face, "you stupid idiots, that's Joseph Smith!" He has a little language problem from being around my brother (who does as well). He always gets in trouble when he uses this phrase but dang it if it wasn't the cutest to see him so devoted to the prophet, and so upset at his mistreatment. this picture is so classic. Really shows all their personalities. You should have seen everyone staring at me alone with all these kids. I was in Utah where large families aren't so out of the ordinary, and I think that people thought they were all mine. After the movie we went and took pictures in the spot where the bride and groom pictures are always taken. The girls wanted one showing their excitement and anticipation for their wedding day in the temple (hence the first photo). Look closely and you will see the boys trying to run into the picture on the right. Love it!
