Saturday we met some of our children, and a photographer, at Muller Park in Bountiful. The weather was chilly, but bearable. The tall Aspen trees swayed in the breeze, they beconed me, "come a little closer". The river was running very low as if to say, "please come sit on my rocks and enjoy this peace one more time. Which I did, as my 8 precious grandchildren ligned up across the bridge. As I looked at them all together my heart skipped a beat. I give thanks each day to be able to see this sight and to know that they are mine. There is history in the love that I feel for their parents. History that will be passed on to their children. It's important to me that the part of the story that I play is filled with imaganation and creativity, with a love of God and all his children, with endless devotion to family, and with purpose and meaning.

    How sweet. Your grandchildren are very precious. Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing such a personal and sweet moment with us. Have a wonderful Monday.


  3. Cindy your 8 grandchildren look like they are having a fun day all neat to take a fall picture with them. In years from now when they are grown up, it will be even more special.
    Always nice to capture grandchildren moments. All Carl has talked about since coming home from work is what the grandkids said yesterday as he visited with them. Yours are probably as smart as ours!!!
