To Be 6 Again.........

What a great age to be! Of all the things I remember as a child the most memorable was when I was 6 years old. My Dad made me a deal about buying an old junky car that sat in our backyard. It was totally broke down, beaten up and completely wonderful! It had according to me the main feature "a steering wheel." I worked and worked for that darn car for possibly a good half a year to earn the $50 he wanted for it. Oh what I would be able to accomplish if I just had that car! Eventually I earned enough money and was rewarded with an old rusty key and countless summer days playing truck driver (my once childhood dream). Oh to be 6 again!
This past week my sweet little niece turned 6. Because her mom was away we decided to take the birthday girls mugshots on her special day to send to mommy and show her what a big girl she is. What a fun and colorful day it was and I think that soooo far, Brinley thinks being 6 is as wonderful as I did!

A little fun mixed with a bit of static electricity always brings good friends closer.

I suppose all good things must come to an end. Happy Super Silly Stupendous Sixth Birthday to a special little girl!

Uncle Jerry

This past Easter weekend was very much bitter sweet. I love Easter and the wonderful celebration we have each year. This year was a little different. In addition to celebrating Christ we celebrated the life of my Uncle Jerry. A larger then life wild west cowboy. A wonderful man whom we all loved very much. To me my Uncle was more like a grandpa. I never did know my Grandpa Lane so Uncle Jerry has always been that grandpa icon. I think the entire family is so thankful to have had the Lane Family reunion this past summer in which he and Aunt Mary could come, we will all cherish the memories we had with him that summer.

This past weekend we attended his funeral in Camp Verde AZ. This was my kids first funeral and they didn't quite know what to expect. After it was over Taylor said "Mom it seemed more like a celebration." I told her that's exactly what it was and what Uncle Jerry would have wanted. After the service we went back to he and my Aunt Mary"s house where the kids got to explore my Uncles incredible Ranch that he was so proud of. We later headed over to Montezumas Castle to do the hike I did tons of times as a kid with my family.

I'm so incredibly thankful for my family. Times like these make you more thankful for those around you. You gain a deeper respect for your ancestors. It also makes you proud of who you are and where you come from.

Funniest picture of Isaac I have ever taken. He may get mad but from this picture it looks as if he's a Tree Hugger?
