24 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

Sorry I didn't get around to many blogs last week. The reason was I was out of town seeing lots and lots of family!

The first leg of my trip I went to my mom's were we had FOUR generations together. This picture here is at the Billings Zoo. Yes, there is a zoo there. It's more like a large park to walk around with a few animals. It is very nice and relaxing, a nice place to take a picnic and just stroll. You will see a frustrated Grizzly, but that's another story. From there it was off to the in-laws side of the family. I was SO incredibly happy I was able to make it over there! It was for my nieces high school graduation. That's the awesome graduate there in the middle! Way to go!!! When I handed off the camera to someone else I had thought the other parents were going to get in the picture. We are going to have to get them used to "getting in the picture" ! So, I guess I look out of place in this picture with the grandparents, grandchildren, and me. But hey! At least I was in the picture, right?

********************52 Weeks********************
52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. We are always the ones behind the camera, this is YOUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. We are glad you are joining this challenge. More importantly your family will really enjoy having you in the picture. Thanks for playing along! Oh, you can just jump in now with 1 of 52, you're not getting off that easy! Now go take a picture!**************************************

" When I write or share something about one of my friends in a posting, I always make sure I send them a copy of it, so they know what was said about them. Today I included information about you and your blog site in my posting, so I thought I should let you know about it as well."

The above paragraph is the first paragraph in an email I sent out today, to all of the owners of blogs whom host "theme days", that I could find email addresses for. But I was unable to find an email address on your blog so that I could include you in the email. The rest of the email is what I posted today on our blog. Go to: www.xanga.com/thehousethatlovebuilt to read it for yourself.

Hopefully, it will then clarify of all of this for you ;-}

I came across this from He And Me +3's site (my brain froze on the name of her blog)... anyways, can I say how important this really is. My MIL passed away in April. We had such a hard time finding any pictures of her. Really hit some of us how important it is to get in front of the camera!

Kristen said...

Love the pics. I've been missing you! ;) Glad you're back. Glad you had a great time with the family. There's nothing in the world like it is there!

Kim said...

Sounds like a fun trip! I love all of the family photos!

Nathalie said...
