Our Month Away - part 2

Picnic with Grandma and Grandpa GreatGreat Grandma and Grandpa Adams with 21 of their 25 great-grandkids.

Precious MomentMy kids and I had a very special dinner with both sets of grandparents and all of the living great-grandparents. We were very lucky that all were available and willing to get together for dinner and a few pictures. A day or two after this picture was taken great grandpa Adams was diagnosed with a stage 5 melanoma. He has been very sick and is currently in the hospital. He turned 89 on August 22nd, the day he was admitted. We were extremely lucky to have had the special chance to visit with him as a family before leaving to return to Pittsburgh. This chance will probably not happen again on this side of the veil.

Pool Fun
The babies had their first swimming fun and yes, Kiah even got to learn how to scuba dive in papa's pool. It doesn't get better than that!!

Bear River Lodge
We spent our last week at my parents cabin in Christmas Meadow at the Bear River Lodge. It was beautiful and a fun adventure for the kids.

Yes, this is my sister Tricia's son who is only 6 months older than the twins (he is 28lbs.)

The squealing girl pic is my favorite!

Your nephew looks like he is super-imposed into the picture with your babies. That is awesome! What a wonderful trip, and how sweet to see your family.

You are wonderwoman! You took all the kids by yourself on vacation for a month! You will be translated! Glad you had a great time!
