Our family...

At least with four out of nine kids present
(the ones that haven't left home yet).

Natural History Museum, 2014...

The museum was very interesting with all of its old dinosaur bones and what-not,
but the most fun part was gold-panning.

We've panned often (mostly at home), but this was fun for the kids.

Above is the only picture remaining of the many that I took
in the territorial jail cells from the 1800's (or most of the museum).

I took this with my phone, then took several others with my camera...
then my whole camera freaked out and everything erased.
I got a message asking if I would like to format my memory card,
and everything was gone and the camera refused to stay on.

I guess the ghosts like to mess with cameras!

Can you believe they have a PHONE BOOTH in the museum?
With instructions on how to work the rotary dial!


They also had an electric typewriter.



They each picked up a geode from the gift shop,
and came home and smashed it with a hammer to see how pretty they are inside
(don't worry, they were supposed to do that).

Sedona 2014...

Can you EVER get tired of looking at Sedona?

Seriously, it is the MOST beautiful and awe-inspiring place I have
ever been to in my life.

I even think we are going to get married there...

But anyways,
Allison and John brought Jacob out for his first visit to Aunt Soapie,
and we had a great week (see here...).

One of the best things we did was go to Sedona for the day.
And it didn't disappoint!
It was just as special as it always is.

Oh, and I like to take photography of things other than the red-rocks,
and I was also teaching Amy to do this (she loves photography),
so please just humor us with all of the other shots. :)

Hitting the road!

Jacob was kind of over riding in the car all that time.
