Family Memories.........

This is us at the family cabin summer of 2006

Here we are in Pine Valley, UT in May of 2008 (notice Nate's fabulous face expression)

Cherry Hill summer of 2006

Royal Bliss concert summer of 2005 (Nate's brother is the drummer you should check them out at

So as we drove home from Park City this afternoon I reflected on what a great day it was to have the five of us there together. It seems lately that we are all going seperate places & I wonder how much longer it will be that we will enjoy Saturdays together. I know my children have to grow and I have to allow them but it is hard to let them start to soar. I love family time & I love just hanging out with Nate and the kids. I was the mom on McKays first day of kindergarten crying so hard that another mom said oh it's okay it is always the hardest with your first. I didn't say anything because I didn't care if it was my 1st, 2nd, or last. I was still letting go of one of my babies to this big world. I pray that we have taught them well enough that they will make the right choices. I pray that they will remember all the mistakes I made that I told them about & what it taught me yet I know they have to make of their own. It is scary and so I cherish every moment we have together & love them as much as I possibly can. According to Eliza I even take stupid pictures to the extreme & record stupid things but you just never know when that may not seem stupid. Nate & I both grew up with parents who were always there to support us & so that has been so important for us. My goal is to just keep making all the family memories we can the time is golden.

I think it's great that you take so many pictures. I'm not very good at that. We had football in Taylorsville. I'm sorry we missed you.

I'm glad you made some memories today. Sometimes I think we tend to let those "available" days slip by and turn into regrets.
I'm glad you're my V.T. so I can get to know you better.
