Summer in the States

Our present is in chaos so here is a photo montage from our past, otherwise known as "How we spent the rest of our Summer vacation."
This summer we, Caleb and Isaac, spent a lot of time like this;

became acquainted with our new cousin Jacob,

our even newer cousin Sloane,

and our newest cousin Taylor;

picnicked in Provo Canyon on the 24th of July;

threw rocks in Provo River and

Payson Lakes;

rode the ponies (well, Caleb anyway),

milked a cow (not in this picture,
but Caleb did get some milk from her),

and weighed in at Thanksgiving Point;

went to the National Zoo with our friend Nancy
(and her parents) and saw:

meerkats,

and gorillas,

and pandas, OH MY!;

ate and ate and ate at all of our favorite places in UT and DC;

saw an incredible exhibit of Afghan art at the National Gallery of Art

and played in the fountains outside;

and, took a break every once in awhile.

I was jealous when I saw the pictures in Provo Canyon. Some of my best memories are there with Gramp and Granner

Mmm, Ben's Chili Bowl. Did you hear they expanded? Although next time you are in DC, you have to go to Founding Farmers. It's new, at the IMF and fabulous.

Can't wait to see pics from your new place!

My hairdresser is from Caracas!! I can barely understand what she is saying so I just go by faith, so far so good!!My husband reminded me that we went there once for a day while we were on a cruise. It was Columbus day and the entire city was closed, so we went to the beach with the other 2 million people for the holiday!!!

Sounds like you had a good time! Kenny, I found your blog through Heather's. It is so nice to see how you are doing. I hope you don't feel violated with me getting all up in your blog. Landan says "Hi" and "man you are looking hot." Well, peace out and stuff.
