Here are a few shots we took this evening. Parting pictures.
Mom holding blondie Mira Catherine. These two have a bond!
The Millers--minus Dad (who's in CA for work this week), and Chris (living out of state). Hard to imagine all the kids 5 years older: that's how much older they'll be when they return!
The Newton family. Rachel's side. Her parents, grandmother, 8 sisters, 1 brother (and their spouses and children). They are tremendous. Rachel's dad gave Doug and Rachel each a priesthood blessing of strength and comfort. I am so thankful Doug has such wonderful in-laws.
This was taken a couple of days ago. We all went to the Newton's to swim and play. Our kids think we're related to the Newton's because their cousins are. Makes sense, right? The adults played ultimate frisbee, then everyone came back to eat, swim, lounge and visit. And they broke out the snow cone machine. That's always a hit.
