Meet the Family
My entire family came into town over the Fourth of July weekend. It was so nice to have everyone here for Luke's baptism and to participate in the parade with us. We had Jill take pictures of the whole clan while we were all together.
I've been told in the past that I never talk about my brothers on the blog. Some have even questioned their existence. Let me introduce you.
Rex is my older brother (by 15 months) but he has always sort of felt like my younger brother if you know what I mean. Rex used to beat the crap out of me growing up but has mellowed a bit in recent years. He is an FBI agent in southern Califoria. He packs heat so I wouldn't mess with him. Rex likes to tease and is known for his kool-aid stunt with Ashley and leaving hilarious comments on my blog. Here is Rex and his family:
You all know Ashley. She is a regular around these parts. She is the smartest one in our family (and that includes you dad!) Ashley is a retired attorney and if she has it her way, she will never work again. She lives in the bay area and she and her husband Tyler make red headed boys:
My little brother Cam is the one you probably don't know. He is a law student at BYU and his wife Katie is the best thing that has ever happened to our family (along with Rex's wife Sarah.) Cam and Katie are the favorite aunt and uncle for many reasons. Cam and I have had some pretty sweet fights as adults and it's good to know I can still take him.
My parents Paul and Linda. You all know my mom as the best grandma on the planet. I used to not use that term for fear of offending others but lets call a spade a spade. She is. As I type this, she is at Cowabunga Bay going down water slides with Luke and Sammie. God bless her. My dad is awesome too. I have really relied on him a lot over the years and I appreciate him more every year.
My family (enjoy it because you will see this same picture on the Christmas card!)
Just because I know you are all clamoring for more, here you go:
