We ahve been in eastern Utah the last couple days on vacation. We went on a tour of some Native American rock art at a place called Dry Canyon. I was impressed. There were so many pictures carved in the rock faces. Amazing. My kids were not so easily amazed. My 6 yr old son said something like, "So, we have lots of those at home in Bandalier." We told the kids that in Dry Canyon and in Bandalier there are many such things to see but in So many places in the world those types of things did not exist that they were indeed very special. I think he understood that.
We also went to the Natural History museum in Vernal. That was nice especially because we went with my parents. I think they were just as excited to see the kids as the kids were to see them. It was fun. Then we spent today in Roosevelt for a family reunion. This year was special because it was the year my grandmother would have celebrated her 100th birthday. I got to see many of my Aunts, Uncles, and cousins that I have not seen in many years. We make a wierd bunch, wierd in our own unique, fun ways and I love them all. I am glad they haven't noticed that I am the wierdest of them all. One example, my cousin Jacob Hamblin (aka J.J.) had a shirt with a picture of the original Jacob Hamblin on the back done up in the multi-colored way Andy Warhol had done Marylin Manroe. It was funny. Another cousin of mine, LeGrande, paints and paints very well. He unfortunately was not there but photos of his paintings were circled about and they are impressive. I particulary like the one with the bull moose.
