Family Pictures 2010

May 1st was a great day! My entire family was all together for the first time since Christmas! It had been a crazy week or two. Sarah had come home from Toronto for a 2 week visit. We sat through 2 convocation ceremonies in one day at BYU for Diana and Nick. Granni Felicia came to visit. Then on April 30th, the day before these photos, Brittany graduated from UVU!
Early in the morning on May 1st I drove to Ephraim, about 90 minutes, to pick up Rachel from  her freshman year of college and bring her home. I spent about 2 hours helping her clean her portion of the apartment and get packed up. Every inch of my Town & Country was packed. While we were on our way home Dee took his mother to the airport.
We all managed to meet up at the Provo Riverwoods Mall that afternoon and smile for the photographer. Geesh! What a day!
Even though it was a month ago I wanted to share some of these shots with you. I know we are going to have our hottest day yet today and I have actually just turned the A/C on for the first time. Toronto has been hot, St. George is in the high 90's, and all of my Mesa family I know you are loving your 112!! Look at this rainy, spring day four weeks ago and sigh with me. Ready now?
Ahhh! Isn't that better?

Which one is your favorite? I still have not decided which one I will enlarge for the wall.

I would like to thank 2 bloggers. First,cute Ashley from Ashley Eliza Photography for giving us a great price and a lot of great memories to look at and laugh at over the coming years. Second, Busy Bee Lauren  of Mesa for having Ashely sponsor a free photo session giveaway on her sight for anyone in Salt Lake or Utah Counties. I didn't win, but Ashley read my entry comment and offered us a sweet deal! Thanks so much!

Those turned out super cute! Beautiful colors and beautiful faces! I love Richard with his fist on his chin. The best part is having everyone together...happy and healthy!
Love you all!

I love love these pictures. You are all so photogenic (did I spell that right?). I think that anyone of them that you choose would be great because there all good!

I loved seeing you all together. You all look so good! It just makes me miss you and wish that we got to see each other more often.

Love You,

These are really great family pictures...everyone looks cute and smiley...that hardly ever happens (I think that's because you don't have any little kids yet which is always a distraction). My favorite is the third one from the top, although I think they are all very good. I also love the background, looks so cool and refreshing.

I like the last one... we look the least chunkery in it.
