The cabin was the real reunion. We spent Wednesday through Saturday up in the mountains near Heber, just enjoying one another's company and the beautiful surrounding area.
|My Mom set up a spider web for the kids. They each |
found a prize at the end of their strings.
|My sister Miriam was nice enough to let us piggyback onto |
Johnny's first birthday party with a little celebration for
Nora as well. Johnny did a smashing job with his cake
(pun intended), as did Miriam.
|Nora didn't cooperate any better the second time around- |
she never even touched hers. I think Benjamin was trying
to help by holding her next to the cake with her arms down...
|But when she opened another pink doll, she was in heaven.|
|The salt lick just outside brought lots of beautiful visitors.|
|Benjamin wanted to play horseshoes with whoever would join him. |
He was right at home at the cabin, and even took a seven or eight
mile hike with all the big people without any trouble until the end.
|Benjamin, Nathan and Isaac.|
|It was SOOO good to see my sisters again. I've missed them!|
|Benjamin really hit it off with his cousins Natalie and Lucy. |
They were always off somewhere playing together.

|On our way out, Peter wanted to go give |
Lucy a hug. She happily obliged. :)
