John arranged for a photographer in his ward to come photograph us all. Getting all the Lane Lance family together in one place at one time is rare. Another storm was rolling in, the wind was quite strong, causing hair problems and flying ties. I love watching other photographers for new tips and tricks. He had a wide lens I'd love to own one day. He photographed the whole family, then the boys, then the girls, then individual families. My stash of smarties came in handy for my kiddos. Justin and I took our kids back to James' home for naps. We were back at the homestead for dinner. I love hearing snatches of conversations going on throughout the living and dining rooms. It is intriguing what my siblings talk about. Dad suggested we sing hymns after dinner. We told more stories after the singing. My favorite was hearing James and Dad give father's blessings to those starting school. We stayed as long as possible before saying good bye for another year. My Mom and Dad won't be back in the states until July 2011, we will miss Punkle Jeremy and Punkle Jared. Hopefully, James and John plus their families will come visit soon (maybe Labor Day??).
