We all had a lovely weekend together. I never cease to be amazed at my parents. Somehow they are able to host incredibly large groups of people at their home, all while making each person feel welcome. We had lots of fun family times together, chatting and singing and playing games. This video showing us all enjoying performance by my brother-in-law and niece captures the feeling of the weekend:
Here are some of my other favorite photos from the weekend:
My sister Laurie and nephew Gideon:
My niece Debbie very lovingly (even though it might not look like it!) playing with the hair of her cousin Natalie, while their mothers chat.
Another thing I did that weekend was make some movies about Soda Springs and posted them on YouTube. They are quite amateurish and I say stupid things occasionally and get tongue tied, but I put them up there anyway. That's because some of the other videos about Soda Springs on YouTube present a negative view, which I didn't think fairly represented the town. I ended up posting 16 short videos. You can find the first one here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUcFA-RJDqk
The drive back to Salt Lake City was totally beautiful, and so I stopped and snapped a few photos. Here are some of my favorites.
