Throwback Thursday: More Family Photos

Today's Thursday, which means it's time for another installment of old family photos.  I'm trying to post many of the photos my grandma gave me, so that other members of the family will have access to them. 
 
My uncle and my dad.  It's funny; growing up, I always heard that I looked like my mom (and we do look alike!), but I can see my oldest son in this photo of my dad--and oldest son looks like me.  I can also see my cousin Becky's smile in my uncle's smile here.  

Dad, Grandma, and Uncle Bud



 I love Grandpa's and Bud's matching overalls in this photo.  I can probably count on one hand the number of times I saw Grandpa wearing something other than overalls.  Of course, I have photos that show him in different clothes, but when I picture Grandpa, I picture him in overalls.  



This is probably one of the latest family photos with Bonnie.  I don't know why they happened to have a photo taken this day, but I'm sure glad they did!

Have you taken a family photo lately?

Thanks for old photos and the ability to share them, but more importantly, thanks for the people in the photos!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
