We brought a photographer out from Utah (my brother in law's brother in law) to take some photos for us. Here's a few of the pictures taken on my camera during the photo shoot.
Me and Bebe
Aunt Erin and Dallin Gresko
On Sunday we went to church and then out for a big family meal at a local casino buffet. It was a great buffet, I'll give it that! We ate a ton! But then we sadly had to say goodbye to our little Mancub, my brother Scott. Scotty boy is in the Air National Guard, stationed at DLI right now, and had to leave before the rest of us.
The nephews ADORE their Uncle Scott!!
And his big sisters miss having him around. We're still amazed at how he suddenly became a man overnight!
What I love most about this picture is not the size of the ice cream cone. It's Tell's face in the background, completely in awe of the ice cream cone. (moment later he would disappear to go make one of his own)
Porter and Dallin attempted to make their own ice cream cones. They had a little adult supervision though.
Porter was in hyperdrive during lunch. First he was just excited to have his whole fan base in one place together, then there was the overstimulation of the casino sights and sounds, and then top it all of with a huge buffet! We're lucky the kid didn't self combust! He was very busy during the whole meal, whether it was eating, drawing pictures, stirring his drink or other's food, or just talking, he had a lot going on. My favorite part of the meal was when he suddenly announced, "I be right back." And just slid out of his chair and marched off like a man on a mission. His mother did get up to follow him from a safe distance. When he realized he was being followed he yelled at her (as 3 year olds are prone to doing) and told her to "go back and sit with her parents!"
The next day my dad, Steve-O and Natalie had to work, so Mom, Steph and I took the boys up to Lake Tahoe. The water was frigid but beautiful. I've never seen anything so clear before. I loved the views and the temperatures up there. Unfortunately I didn't think the high altitude thing through very well, and in spite of trying to stay in the shade as much as possible, I got a pretty pink sunburn all over.
My favorite little ducky.
The beautiful view. Please also notice how the boys have not actually gone that far out into the water. TOO COLD!
Mom was smart and stayed under an umbrella. Private beaches really do come with the best amenities!
This is how clear the water was.
That's enough family slide show time for now. I'm sure I'll have more to post sooner or later.
