Rainbow Bridge

This is Utah's famous "Rainbow Bridge" rock formation. This is what we went to see the day we launched our boat off of the rock in Lake Powell. Everyone is doing okay now, though none of us has proposed any boating trips. Utah and Arizona have an abundant supply of natural beauty, but treat that beauty with care! We had an amazing family vacation. Got to meet all of our cousins' kids (six kids under the age of 7 between the two of them). Spent time in Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park. Also, of course, time spent on the above mentioned Lake Powell at Glen Canyon. All spectacular. For those who have not spent any time in our nations canyons, I highly recommend you plan a trip out there. You won't be sorry (well, you won't be sorry as long as you aren't driving your boat around at night in the dark at Lake Powell anyway). =-)

Happy Mother's' Day!

My mom would kill me if she knew I put these on the web. Here she is modelling her mothers day gift - yep - the finally finished entrelac scarf! The second picture shows the soft fleecey lining that I knit up for the back so that it wouldn't be scratchy against her face. I think it actually took me less than a year to finish this scarf so that is a new record for me. And my mom just woke up from a nap in this picture, so don't make fun of her hair. =-)
Thank you mom, for all of the things you have taught me, all the love and support you continue to give me every day. I would not be anywhere in this world without you. You are my best friend, my confidante, my supporter and cheerleader. I hope as life moves along, I will be able to provide you with some of those things in return. I love you.
