A few gems

This past weekend Ali emailed us a bunch of pictures.  She and my Mom were going through our old family slides.  I’ve been through a lot of these before myself, but there are hundreds more I haven’t seen.  SO many gems in there.

Although my Dad hasn’t been in the picture for most of my life after third grade, I can’t help but be so thankful that he loved photography and loved taking pictures of his kids, nature and life in general while he and my Mom were married.

Here are just a few.  These bring back great memories of the house where we  grew up in Holladay!
