Chris brought out his guns and ammo. How cute is this? This is my nieces husband Jon and their youngest, Noah.
Neal is waiting for the clay pidgeon to be launched by Uncle Chris. Neal did a pretty darn good job at hitting them, more than half.
Will, Noah, and Ella, my nieces kids. Not sure what that makes me. Too old is all that comes to my mind!
Michelle and my father have the same name in Hawaiian. After my mother died, my father was visiting us and right there during Sacrament meeting my father handed Michelle his Hawaiian wedding band that was inscribed, Mikela. I think they each have a special spot in their hearts for each other.
My father and the "twins".
Can you guess what Ella is eating? See below
This is Sean, Lou Lou's oldest. He works on Vancouver Island in Tofino, a resort, and did alot of the cooking at the restaurant. He is making an apple crisp. When I brought out the "apple-peeler-corer-slicer" he thought he had died and gone to heaven. The kids all of the sudden were interested what was going on in the kitchen. Above is Ella eating the peels. Those of you who had kids attend Mrs. Waingrow's pre-school class when she was teaching will remember this kitchen appliance. During snack time she would bring out this and the kids would line up to help peel their apples.
Clark, Sean. and Jon (Cher's husband), hanging out at the camp kitchen in Waterton.
Here is Seth, Lou Lou's youngest waiting for his clay pidgeon to be in just the right spot, then bang!
My boys! Brad wasn't going to come to the reunion but he somehow managed to talk his boss (his cousin) into it afterall. Brad has had a great summer selling pest control so how could Kyle refuse? Brad drove home from the airport, went straight to work, and sold three jobs just like that. It was great to have him here. Clark has been here for a couple weeks between school terms. He has been going to school for 4 straight terms with no breaks so he has been enjoying his time here. In September he heads off to BYU Study Abroad in Jerusalem.
I aimed, pulled the trigger and BAM! I split that clay pidgeon right in half! Did I say it was my first shot? "It was my first shot. Take that."
My family, minus Laurel. We missed her in more ways than one.
I need to update the house projects. The stucco and rock work were completed during the renunion (at least it's finally finished) and then we had our staircase installed and finished the day before. Next on deck, is............the deck! Pictures of the stucco and rockwork and stairs will be posted when the sun is shining and I can get a good shot. It has been so rainy here which of course I am not happy about. I like the rain and I always wished it had rained more when we lived in California, but not here in Canada, in July and August. Oh did I mention that it snowed on my birthday? That would be June 7th!
All is well here, the house is coming along, kids were (are) home this summer, and we are all healthy and happy!
ps. no pics of the Cahoon Reunion, just quadruple this and times it by 4. You get the picture!
