Baker Family Reunion

Oh my goodness. WHAT FUN!!! I can honestly say this might be in the running for the most enjoyable time yet this summer. We went to the Baker Family Reunion in Buffalo, Wyoming. So much to do. Lot's of sharing time, shopping, talent show, dance, bowling, and best of all the amazing race savanger hunt.

This is a picture of Gunnar holding the "torch". It was passed to all the little ones from my grandpa and aunt Patsy who do "The Twist" dance, it's been tradition since as long as I can remember.

My grandma and I.
My goofy grandpa!

Gunnar and cousin Paris.

He Thinks he's Funny!

Our dearist Nathan Oleson!!! The other night, Nate left to go get some beer. A friend, Gunnar and I were sitting on the porch as he came up the walk, I could see something in his hand but couldn't tell what it was. As he got closer I figured it out and ran inside the house as Nate dropped the darn snake on the porch. The bull-snake was a little upset that he was cornered and grazed Nate's hand with his fangs. (That will teach ya!) Anyway, between my friend, Gunnar, the dog and myself it was a little scary and I don't consider myself scared of snakes but I think I've seen enough for awhile.

4th of July!

We spent another 4th of July in Crawford this year and had fun as always. We got to see Nate's family at the Rising family reunion. Nate got to golf. And Nate and I got to spend some much needed time together.

Our happy son.

That hat sure looks goofy when Daddy is wearing it.

Vince and Kelly (Nate's brother and sister-in-law)

The wonderful kiddo's, our 2 nephews (Tony and Nick) and our neice (Betsy) These kids are so good and we love them very much. Oh and you can't forget Emily sittin on Betsy's lap.

Grandpa Jerry and Gunnar. (Gunnar loves to spend time with him especially because he always has a surprise!)

Grandma Glee and Grandpa Ken. (Gunnar spent lots of time with them, he really enjoyed going to the rodeo. He is so spoiled!)

~Yellowstone~ (Part 1)

Ok, thanks to my neighbor my computer is up and running again. The third week of June I took a trip to Yellowstone with a group of clients. (Man, I love my job) It was SOOO pretty up there and most of the time I thought about how much Nate would have loved it. Anyway, here are so pictures of the trip. Just in case you were thinking of "molesting" the animals it's against park regulations. Ha Ha!

Old Faithful was awesome!!!
