just what the doctor ordered ...

Thanks to my sweet sister, Jen, I spent the weekend in Colorado.
I was there to celebrate her son's Eagle Scout rank advancement
and her grandson's blessing.
Diane is Jennilyn's daughter. She & Andy had lots of people show up to celebrate, including Andy's parents and brother and cousin, Diane's entire family, her Grandma Eckersley, my brother, parents and myself. A pretty good showing!
This was really neat ... Eric's Grandma Eckersley, and Grandma & Grandpa Call were there to see his rank advancement. (PS - aren't my parents gorgeous?!)
And although I did indeed celebrate those events,
mostly I basked in the comfort of being my parents' child and my siblings' sister.
I don't think any of us can count the hours we spent playing
I come from a game-playing-family so this was amazingly fun and relaxing
I had to put this picture in just because :)
... Dad, Darryn & I were in the church entry dutifully waiting for everyone else to arrive so we could take family pictures with the many, many people who showed up for little Steven Christopher Sheafor's blessing ...
and if you know me, you know i can't just stand around with a camera in my hand
so i took pictures of myself
