LOOK at this amazing weather. We've had a lot of rainy and overcast days the last couple of weeks so when this weather showed up I had to take up its generous offer and disappear from normal life as I know it.

To be honest it was more than the gorgeous weather. First my mother came in on Thursday and then my friend Claudia came on Saturday for the weekend. I had to HELP Claudia enjoy her visit.

Even John took off early on Saturday and ALL day Sunday to enjoy with us.

The boys were surfing non-stop and I took a lot of pics with my 35mm so I don't have them to share as I used real, actual film. (Remember that stuff?) But I did get some shots of them cutting-up which is ALL they do when not surfing.

Mostly I just sat on my ass.

My brother-in-law came in w/his family and more will be coming later this week. It's that time of the year when the visitors roll in non-stop. And I have to come back to reality now and get some work done. But all the while I will be planning my next escape.

Man you aren't kidding betmo! There is nothing for it but to stand in some body of water or stay in the AC.

Great beach shots! I love the cut-up pics - what a trio!

We don't have much of a beach in Salt Lake City :-\

Work is that stuff that interupts year round vacations.

Looks like the summer is going great for you and the family
