BAD blogger.....

I have been SO remiss in my blogging duties...I must apologize! We've been so busy...and traveling all over the countryside visiting people we love and having a great time....

We just got back from our trip to Utah and it was wonderful...we absolutely love it here in Oregon, the only bad part is that ALL of our families on both sides are back in Utah and we do miss them so. Reagan and Taylor frequently want to know why we don't live by GRANDMA???;)

I have so many things to blog...pictures to share...stories to catch up on....so I'll try and blog one thing a day until I run out of things...sound like a plan?

We visited my side of the family out in Eastern Utah...I grew up near Vernal, Utah, near Dinosaur National Monument. One of the days we were there, we took all the kids and went for a fun visit to the museum and dinosaur gardens, then a picnic in the park. Proving that no trip with us is without humor...the pictures we took just strike me funny....

For instance...Taylor is being eaten by a Utah-Raptor (velociraptor for those fans of Jurassic Park) in the above picture. Do you think she would look quite that happy over the prospect of having her head chomped on?

we didn't think so either...which is why we had to retake that shot


MUCH more appropriate...

Anyway...the rest of the my family got into the spirit of things and just joined right in with all these dinosaurs in the gardens...Kassie (my younger sis) and this friendly looking fellow both look like they are highly interested in SOMETHING....actully maybe it's a GIRL-dinosaur and they just saw a cute boy walk by....who knows?






Howard and Carter...and this enormous scary "whatever kind of dino he is" all look like they are patiently waiting for a good moment to cross the street together...he he...


but my favorite pic has to be my cute mama...you can't tell she's been a fabulous school teacher of young kids all her life can you? If you are going to pose like a dinosaur...really get INTO it...and she does! Let it NOT be said that our family is afraid of whimsy...I Love you Mom:)


The kids had a ball...if you are ever near Dinosaurland in Utah...do plan to stop and see the gardens and museum, they are very fun:)
