Tyler & Ashley - November 9, 2017

Tyler & Ashley
November 9, 2017

There are some amazing days that are so perfect, so beautiful, so uplifting, they will be etched in my memory forever. Yesterday was one of those days! Our wonderful son, (and youngest), married a remarkable young woman for time and eternity, (as we believe in our faith). They adore each other and are a perfect match in every way. Tyler describes Ashley as the sweetest and kindest girl he has every met. We are so happy for them!

Dinner with Ashley and Her Mom

We we do not a lot of family here for an official wedding shower, we invited Ashley and her mother Wendi to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  It was nice getting to know them a little better.

Wedding Announcement

I learned a hard lesson at Jaron & Michelle's wedding, and that is you can't be the official photographer and mother of the groom at the same time!  But doing engagement photos prior to the wedding is fun!

Penelope - Penny


Meet the newest member of our family.  This was my idea, and I don't know what I was thinking.  I guess I was thinking that old people need a dog to keep them occupied.  Well, even Jeff couldn't resist this face.  She is a labradoodle and should end up around 30 lbs.

Lake Powell - 2017

We had another wonderful family vacation at Lake Powell.  Everyone was able to come except Amber and Vic, but all the grandkids were able to come.  Here are just the family photos I took.  These and about 450 additional 'fun times' photos I've included in the annual Lake Powell book I make for each family:

And a few 'beauty shots:

This year I also made pillow cases for all the grandkids .... sharks for the boys and mermaids for the girls:

Happy 47th Anniversary to Us!

I think adults with grown up children fall into one of two categories......
those who say, "Thank heavens I never have to go to Disneyland again"........
the other category!
