We're Back

We did lots of this:

Saw lots of this:

We spent Fourth of July weekend with the McGees at their beloved cabin above Durango,Colorado. Every one of Mark's parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews were there. Then we drove to my parents house, where my sister Nancy and her four children were also visiting. From there, Mark flew to Ecuador. More on his adventures later. On our way home, we visited the McGee home in Albuquerque and stopped at the McGee ranch in La Plata, New Mexico, where we visited Mark's grandma and a passel o cousins. In all, we saw dozens of beloved from four generations on both sides of our family tree.

No way to do a full travelogue, but here's a shot of each of the kids enjoying the McGee cabin. (Beautiful pics thanks to my talented BIL Alberto.)
Betsy on the deck Grandpa built.

His hair matches the red dirt.
Haley with her lookalike cousin Sarah.

Intense card games.
Logan (back of canoe) almost never came up from the waterfront.
And who is this handsome man? I really don't know.
And my mom doing what she loves best--holding bushels of babies.


  1. I LOVE that picture of Betsey. Did I mention that Scott is not betrothed yet?

  2. Beautiful pics, indeed! The one of Roscoe is my fave! So grown up!

  3. Sounds like quite the memory maker trip all around. Those ARE the best kind:)
    So now that your home it's time we get together..date night or family night?

  4. LOVE the old-timey picture of you and Betsy. She'll want that blown up someday.
