Summer Days: Wyoming

Caleb's grandma had her 80th birthday this year!  As many of the family as could make it got together for a weekend to celebrate.

The four of us and Caleb's sisters piled into Leah's car and headed down the road in the pre-dawn hours of Friday the 5th.  Several hours (and much on-the-road-with-siblings hilarity) later we arrived in the town of Wheatland, Wyoming. 
It was really nice to spend time with everyone.  We had meals at Grandma Mary's house, a family reunion on Saturday at the beautiful Ayers Natural Bridge, and a family picnic in the park on Sunday after church to wish Grandma a happy birthday.

 My buddies, Charity and Stacie, whom I hadn't see for far too long.

  The kids and Leah and I went swimming in the river.  Whew, was it cold!
Leah was Greta Rose's buddy. :)

Looking at family pictures; the one above left was taken several years ago at Natural Bridge.

Monday morning early we piled back in the car and drove home.  Good memories, all gifts!
