I think we need some introductions, eh? (Let's hope I don't get disowned after this post, okay?)
Oldest to youngest?
My mom & dad: (Doesn't my dad look like he has a secret?)
Tho, I much prefer this shot of them.
My oldest brother, Adam.
He and his wife, Mika were sealed in the Washington DC Temple while we were in town.
They also had their daughter, Gabi sealed to them.
Gabi is a seriously beautiful little girl, even when she looked like this:
But especially when she was happy.
Unfortunately, my brother Andrew and his family couldn't make it at the last minute, so pictures of them will have to wait until next time.
My younger brother, Matt and his wife, Erikka are next up.
Matt visited us a couple of weeks ago.
But he should never be without his better half. No, Seriously.
Jenny, Jason, Tab & Benton.
It's really the best feeling in the world to have your sister be one of your very best friends. I'm just sad because they live 6 states and an 18.5 hour drive away. Curses! And thank goodness for TMobile's 5 Favs. Keep your eye out for a more formal family shoot I did for them.
Keep in mind, this man will be a doctor someday:
Tab. Kid is a riot!
Doesn't Benny have the best hair?
And another picture of "buck-tooth Benny" when he's not being tossed wildly into the air.
Rebekah, Clint & Cameron.
It was touch and go there for awhile as to whether Clint was going to be able to make it. Thankfully, he managed a last-minute ticket and was able to successfully soak me about 4 times with a bucket of water. Thank you, Clint.
And Cameron, looking the peaceful child that he, er... well, that he tries to be.
Rachel is the sister I'm most jealous of. She's single. Not to say that I don't love my husband or children. I do! Just that sometimes fewer ties might be nice, eh? She was so fabulous to watch my kids for me a couple of times and I think that I successfully hooked her on the magic of the Rubik's Cube. Hey Provo, Orem, SLC available (NOT LAME) guys... did I mention she's single?
Finally, the baby. Jarom. I have to admit that Jarom was really great to keep an eye on kids. And in general, I didn't see much of Abbie or Anna due to his fabulous child wrangling skillz. He just graduated high school and is preparing to go on a mission.
This is the part where I shamefully admit to not having any pictures (except in our big group picture that I'll show you later) of Jarom by himself. Sorry J! I'm sure someone does!
The bad news is that I didn't get a single shot of our little family from the entire trip. Seems like we were always coming or going... and never in the same direction. Maybe next time.
More pictures soon.
