Needing some dentures?!

Theresa lost 2 teeth yesterday! Add that to the tooth she lost a week ago and that's one cute, gummy smile! She is quite excited and proud!

Southeastern Utah

In my mind, Southeastern Utah is one of the most beautiful places in our country. We traveled through a part of it on our way home and here are some shots of it. Most of these were taken in Capitol Reef National Park.

They call it Capitol Reef because of the many white domes that resemble our capitol buildings, and since many pioneers at the time were ex-mariners they found the area to be dangerous and mostly impassible, much like an ocean reef, thus Capitol Reef. This picture shows both.

Looking down on the Colorado River, and yes we are on the edge of the cliff!

Typical picnic area, just spectacular

Capitol Gorge and the Grand Wash. Watch out for rain -- These are flash flood death traps

There were a couple cars parked on the road here. Can you see what they are doing here? Check out the next picture to see.

Doesn't that look like fun!

Our recent cross-country trips have provided some terrific scenery. If you remember last year we drove through Flaming Gorge National Park on our way back from Matt and Magdalene's wedding. The whole area is just so beautiful. More trip pictures to come ...

The Tea Party

Rachel joining the tea party
The girls, who thoroughly enjoy playing dress-up, talked Aunt Rachel into joining them! Once they were all dressed they had a tea party. It was all quite fun until Joseph, who's not known for his gentleness, accidentally broke the teapot! By the way, do you notice something missing? Hint: It use to belong to Theresa.

Just not very pretty

Joseph makes one UGLY girl!

I think it is about time we got Joseph some swords, armor, capes, etc. The girls will probably get him in a dress anyway, so I guess it won't really matter! Next it will be ruby red lipstick, mascara, eye liner, blush, and fingernail polish (they've already gotten his toes once). Stay tuned!
