Memorial Day 2008 at Twin Pine Ranch

Who knew curry could be so good? Well, I guess the answer is we all knew it. The traditional H. Roland and Harriett D. Emmett feast continues with an ever growing prosteriety (in fact, the number increased by one at about 6:05pm today with the arrival of Lily Emmett - more on that later). Some members of the 4th and 5th generations were seen eating corn dogs rather than curry, but that's OK. Salads, fruit, veggies, chocolate pie, strawberry cake, various cookies and lemon bars provided all with more than the minimum number of required calories for an Ironman in training. With rain in the forecast for much of Monday, trips to the Brigham City and Logan Cemetaries took place on Sunday afternoon leaving Monday open to a day of travel, family fun and plenty of food.

Sorry Paige..... I know I promised you full editorial rights, but I think that we needed to see the always cute Laura, Paige and Adrienne enjoying the day.

"Where's my mommy?" Well, she's on her way to the hospital!!! Tuesday you'll be able to go visit your mom and your new baby sister Lily. Way to go Beth!!

Chad and the Hickman cousins, Allison, Ann and Heather

How does Alex do it? I seem to keep running into this shed.

Before traveling (I just spent 10 days in Israel getting oriented for next year's stay) I usually take a photo of the kids so that I can have it on my digital camera to look at. I took this photo on May 5th before leaving for the airport. I liked the way in which Will spontaneously decided to reach out to his older siblings and pull them in.
