{July 24: Fun & Games at the Church}

Ah traditions! I'm so sentimental about them...and more so each year!  Love Utah's Pioneer Day and the chance to reflect on my great heritage and enjoy my sweet family! 

All patriotic on the church steps!
 All the cousins (missing the Dalley sad!)
Breakfast in the sun...can't beat a pancake breakfast. 
 Especially when my own parentals were in charge.  It turned out great. They fed hundreds of people!
I guess Rylan wanted his picture taken a lot that morning because I have these sweet gems of our 4 year old. 
The traditional foot races. 
Classic moment from this year was Addy giving Ry a push start.  Yah, didn't end well.  He was devastated. 
So he ran the next race with the 5 year olds. No worries.
 And, go figure, Miles was terrified of the whole thing and not having it. At. All. 
Cracker jacks all around. 

Sweet Claire finally warming up to me.  Cutest.

 The kids participated in almost everything....
And even the sisters battled it out in the balloon toss. I think we took second. 

Always an awesome day each and every year!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
