2010: Year in Review Continued

This review is under construction...I want to catch up to August, for heaven's sake. At least I'm up to February, eh????

FEBRUARY: Aaron, Pancakes, and the Parade of Homes:
(Oh. And donkeys thrown in at no extra charge.)

This is my eldest son Aaron. He turned 40 in February. Yikes! I'm far too young to have a forty-year-old! But look how winsome he looks. He needs a wife. Anyone???



Darwin is a pancake maker par excellence! He has a secret recipe handed down from father to son. They are fondly known as "Dad's Pancakes."



We're always excited when the Parade of Homes rolls around--usually on President's Day weekend. I am so snap-happy that I usually fill a whole card with home shots. You are lucky that I'm only posting a couple.




I found that I was more interested in the people shots than I was home shots this year. This guys was in the garage of one home, peddling his wares--the western art you see in the background. He was happy to pose for me. Isn't he awesome?



These two mountain men were in a tent outside one of the homes in Elim Valley. I thought they were adorable, hawking their wares.





Oh, Janna...there are easier ways to get a free carrot!!!!



We stopped in Virgin to feed the donkeys. Burro had instant rapport with this one! They bonded!


The donkeys were sad to see us go!

I love those pancakes!!! Glad you had a great time at the parade of homes! I couldn't *still can't* believe my eyes! Is Janna really sharing a carrot with Mountain Man Dan? Hahahaha. I was actually wondering when I'd see a blog from you again! I also have a love for the donkeys! We had one we'd feed in Glendale. We loved to make it cry by pretending like we were getting in the car. Haha.
