These are my cousins from Morgan, Utah. Actually, these are only the girls. From the left in the back is Linda in front of her is Georgene, Kimberly, Jennifer, Uncle Morris, Tiffany and Janeal. (Please forgive me if I spelled your names wrong!)
Here is my favorite Aunt Marsha (she paid me to say that!) whose name I suddenly forgot during the viewing. Must be my demitia kicking in again. On her left is my sister Kristin and her hubby Mark.
And here are my totally awesome, amazing Aunts. You all should be jealous that your aunts aren't as wonderul as mine! From the left is Merla, Jeanene, Brenda, Marsha and Diana. Missing is my Aunt Bonnie who lives in California. My Dad had all these sisters all to himself!
And finally, here is the rest of my family. The two sisters missing from last weeks picture. You can see who got the tall genes in the family and it definatley wasn't me! Again, from the left, Kristin, Marrla, my Step Mom Betty, Stephanie and Me.
The service was very nice and afterwards there was Ice Cream and Donuts!
Here is what Alex did for the 2 1/2 hours back home. I think this is his best side.
Check out other Wordful Wednesdays over at Angies!

He has decided not to continue on with the High School Band, so this really was his last concert.
The program was great and the trumpets did an especially good job.
So thanks to his teacher who taught him to read music and play an instrument so he could tell me in church that when I sing I am sharp. (And he doesn't mean smart!)
These are two of the other trumpet players. These two boys are so cute and so much fun! I will miss them along with Alex being a musician.
We stopped by Arby's afterwards for a our last band supper. And hasn't Alex taken over the surly teenager role so well!
Alex you did a great job in your three year career in band. I'm proud of you!

We ran to the grocery store first to get some much needed liquid refreshment and were pulling back onto the main road when a motorcycle pulled by us.
I had my glasses on, Madie did not.
I have heard the jokes, seen the pictures and read Nikki’s I Wish Wednesday post, but I have never been bumper to tire with what we saw.
Madie looked up and lets out a squeal and with an ear piercing voice says, “Oh For Gross!”
For it really was……Gross.
We had motorcycle Butt Crack right in front of us.
We slowed way down. Nothing makes you want to obey the law like a hairy, exposed, butt crack.
I suggest Janice and Liz and Karen stay at home. Do not venture close to Harmon’s. You may see more than you really want.
You have been warned!

This picture was taken about 5 years after my mother and step-father married. I used to dream of being an only child and it's no wonder with 9 siblings! Plus I have two half sisters, that at the time of this picture, I didn't even know existed!
My mother had made us matching shirts. Even she and my step father had shirts that matched. I remember this day like it was yesterday. We made quite a stir when we went out in public. Doesn't Marrla look so dang cute in her Levis? And Jack and Jill as little kids? I miss them being little. Steve doesn't look too happy and Mark is , as always, hiding his face. Doug, on the far right, was the neighborhood bully. And my mother married his father. Crazy!

For Wordful Wednesday here is a shot of downtown Salt Lake.. which is where I will be.
See that building right in the middle down toward the bottom of the picture? That will be where I will spend the day. Visiting the Third District Court. I'm hoping it's just part of the day. Maybe I should take my gun. (If I had a gun!)
