Trip Out West

Terry and I flew to San Fransisco to join my family on a western trip.  There was 15 in our group after we joined them.

Mother with her children, in-laws, and one niece at the Golden Gate bridge.

The bus we traveled in.
One of the highlights of our trip was stopping in at Uncle Daniels. We spent two evenings with Uncle Daniels and some of their children.

Emily with cousin Doug and wife Sharon.

One of the many beautiful scenes we saw on our trip.

In Yellowstone National Park.
So excited that we got to see these bison swim across the river.

We were within 9 feet of this fellow.

Afternoon stop at Dairy Queen.

Mark and Polly in front of Mammoth Springs.

7 Sisters in Sisters, Oregon.

Sanford and Sheila getting ready to fly home.  6 of the group left us late one night. While they sleep in the airport the rest of us sleep in the bus.  We could not find a motel. :(

At the rodeo in Cody, WY.

Jim and June laughing at pictures.

Clair drawing Jim as we go down the road.  This picture took her about one hour to sketch.

 It is amazing to see her work.

Home again.
I saw this in my cousin Yavonn's photo album and liked it. I had to change the wording a little. 


  1. good post mom :) i feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing family!!!

  2. Oh Barbara, I love the prayer. It says how I feel myself... I'm sorry I couldn't see the bison and elk for real, but your pictures give me a good feel for how it looked. I also love Jim's laugh. You can tell he's enjoying himself. And Claire's picture of him is awesome.

  3. Barbara ~ had been missing seeing you in the shop! Now I know you were off traveling and having a good time! Love the bison crossing the river!! You get to travel and do such fun, fun things!

  4. That was quite a trip -- I so enjoyed your pictures!! Seven sisters -- you are blessed!
