Nila Carlson

This past weekend was the Funeral for Wendy's Mom, Nila Carlson. She was 92 and lived a long full life raising 12 kids. Here are a few pictures of many that we took. There were a lot of cameras around so I suspect that I will see a lot of pictures on other family blogs.

The Twelve Siblings plus Lili, Nila's care giver

She had lots of Great Grand kids at the funeral

Last weekend in Boise was the "Time Out for Couples" on Friday evening and on Saturday they had "Time out for Women and Girls" Robert & Jessica as well as some friends, the Olsons went with us Friday evening, then Saturday Wendy took my mom, Kara and Gay Olson and her daughter Sharalyn. It was a great spiritual uplift and a great reminder on how we should treat each other. I had Saturday all to myself, so I mowed the lawn and did some extra triming to make the yard look good and had a great nap.

Canning Season

Canning season is here and Wendy has been working hard for us. I just love her canned peaches. Kara was getting creative taking pictures of Wendy's hard work stacking the jars for the just right picture. Of course Wendy was worried that a jar might fall over and break.

Labor Day Campout

We decided that since we did not have anything that required our presence this weekend, we would go camping with our 4 day weekend. We went up to Sliver Creek Plunge and enjoyed some R&R and a good long soak in the hotsprings.

Wendy doing a crossword and Sudoku. Thats how she relaxes, and Kara enjoying the hammock and eating some kind of candy.

Enjoying a nice soak

We took the 4 wheeler with us and had some good rides. Wendy & I rode up to a Fire Lookout that is still in use and has been in use since 1933.
