Here are the links to reunion pictures. The reunion was amazing... it really was about reconnecting with old friends... and being real. I'm so glad we went. What an amazing summer. If you have Picasa, you can download the entire album to your own computer and get pictures printed. Here are the links:

Not the best picture... but this is my baby brother, Richard, in a wheelchair! He jumped off a wishing well in a playground and got a spiral fracture in his leg... AND got to be in a wheelchair. I was SO jealous (boy was that dumb). Anyway, I think this was in 1969 only because it is with the other pictures I had from that year... poor baby!

Here's a link to some miscellaneous pictures of our family... immediate and extended. Someday I'll put captions on them... but for now you can get an idea of our lives! Oh, you may need to download Picasa from Google... it's great!

The llink did not work... trying something else now... hopefully this one will work... http://picasaweb.google.com/1331shellie/FBLAPicturesFromTheSixtiesAndSeventies

We got home yesterday afternoon, parked the car and looked up to see a blue heron! What a shock! Many of you have seen this tree accross the street... during the winter months the wild turkeys fly up and seem to play "king of the hill" to be on the highest branches! It was fun watching the blue heron... and we tried to get it to do something exciting... to no avail.

Lake Mendocino at 7:32 a.m ...
The view from up on the hill...
Jeff on his first jet ski ride!
We arrived at 7:30 a.m. and left at 6:45 p.m. The lake is only one mile from our house, although we spent the day down at the south boat ramp which is about seven miles by car. It was a beautiful day, with much less smoke in the air. We were right on the beach and Ron and Wendy brought their boat and jet ski... what a blast. Alison and Chelsea were also there for the day. The entire Skidmore Clan came down around lunch time with their myriad of jet skiis... and boy was it fun! They're usually the ones with a motor home on the beach, so it was fun saving them a spot by our baby motor home. Jeff road a jet ski for the first time ever... and had lots of fun. I rode for the first time in several years... and much to my surprise did NOT have neck issues... just lower back pain. It wasn't any worse than a long day driving or shopping... YAHOO! We also went out in the boat... FUN! FUN! FUN! Happy 4th a day late to all of you!

This is our up-the-hill neighbor's dog, Roxi. She is confused, and thinks she lives at our house. This half barrel was planted with pretty flowers last year... until Roxi decided it made a perfect bed... dug up the flowers, and hopped in! She is such a sweet dog, and keeps Dopey company. Her nighttime bark is crazy... her hound dog roots come out LOUD and clear.

We enjoyed a nice luncheon at Fat's Restaurant in Folsom the day after the wedding. This is the only picture of the two of us, because my camera got weird during the reception. My brother popped my bubble about being a good photographer... he said ANYONE could take a fabulous picture... if they shoot enough shots! Boo... Hiss... the picture of Jen and Evan was the ONLY one I took. So there.

Congratulations to Evan and Jen... it was a spectacular wedding and an amazing party! Bill and Eileen throw a great party! I was blessed to be a part of such a special weekend. I took this picture at the reception... and think these two are rather photogenic! It would be fun to be a 'real' photographer. Maybe when I grow up...

Here is a "smoke" picture to try and give you an idea of the dense smoke... it is crazy. This picture is from the other day... it's a bit better now, although compared to our normal clean air it's HORRIBLE! This picture was on Tollini Lane in Ukiah.
