Yes, another family get-together, this one for our family's June birthdays and an early Father's Day. I started my blog to help me record and remember these kind of family events, so I can hardly apologize for posting too many of them. As we gathered this weekend we were extra thankful to be together and all safe as our thoughts and smart phones were focused on our neighbors just to the north who are suffering from northern Colorado's High Park Fire. A smoky haze in the air and the air tankers flying overhead were a constant reminder of this horrible fire event.

We did, in any case, celebrate the birthdays and honor the fathers with a yummy picnic dinner followed by cupcakes.
The bigger kids, as always, played lots of baseball.
They always come equipped with gloves, bats, balls and bases. I love that regardless of age or skill level they all have a great time playing together.
I, as usual, tried to get a good picture of my two 4 year old granddaughters together, but these busy little girls never stand still long enough for me. I like this one that shows Anna's new short haircut, a result of her trying a little hair styling on her own with a pair of scissors.
And this year's picture of me with all of my grandkids on the slide.
They have grown a lot since we started taking these, but I'm sure I haven't changed a bit.
We woke up this morning to a smoky haze on the ground, a smoky sky and the smell of fire in the air. The fire has grown to over 43000 acres and there have been homes lost and one life lost. Please keep those who are fighting this fire and those who are suffering from it's fury in your thoughts and prayers.
