FAMILY . . . fun, funky . . what can I say?

Melanie Danbrook is on the the lt. in front of Kerry.
Front row, lt. to rt: Jan Milner with Skittles, CJ, Robin Armstrong-Miller, Danaya Benedetto, Lynnelle Beaver and Brittany Lehman.  The cutie in front in the pink bathing suit is Emma Lehman.

We have a pretty big family and I don't think we'll ever ALL be in the same place at the same time.  But we try to enjoy the daylights out of times we have when we can be together and see each other. My family is scattered from British Columbia, down into Oregon and clear across the entire U.S. of A. to North Carolina.  My daughter and I were on a road trip recently all over the State of Colorado, which included working as crew members at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Rocky Mountains event.  Two of my nieces were part of our crew and then we went into Denver to the home of one of those gals for a bit more family fun.  Shopping, sitting around chatting, a family BBQ. . . general silliness.  This pic is of that group of family members, taken June 25, 2012.
Thank you Lord for family!

My daughter, Robin; myself; my niece Melanie from British Columbia, and; Lynnelle, my niece from the Denver area. We had finished our work for Day One of the event and were at the Wellness Village, in Frisco, Colorado. 
It was such an honor and privilege to work with these girls . . . all family . . . on the crew for tthis event!
