I know that these posts are out of order...but, here are some pictures of Layla, Liam, Marcie and Josh when they have been here and some when Marcie and I took the kids to Frisco and visited with Hobe, Elaine, Brook, Laura and Christopher. It was so good to be with them!

Derek, Taryn, Layla, Liam, Kathryn, Bryce, Jolee, Connor, Macey are all stars of this slide show. The last several months have been filled with such great times with these wonderful children and their awesome parents!! I love every second of being with all of them! We are very excited that Jolee is doing so well and we haven't had many pictures of her...so these are very special!

Darek Clayton McIlmoil...our newest little grandson





Darek was born September 24 at 6:37 am after just an hour of Labor! He weighed 8 lbs. and has a lot of hair which is very dark and very interesting to his darling sister Taryn. He is such a beautiful baby and I had a wonderful time with him and his family for three weeks! When I went back for his blessing I couldn't believe how much he had grown! He is a chubby little boy who really enjoys eating! It is always amazing the love that I feel with each of these sweet, wonderful grandchildren! Tara and Steve are great parents and I love them. The quilt of the bright colored animals is the one I made for Darek and brought out at his blessing! I really had fun making it!

Camping near Lake City







Paul and I went on a little camping trip this weekend and had a great time. We were in a camp site called The Gate. It had 6 camping spots. We were right on the river and had a spectacular view. We enjoyed a little fishing, a bike ride, a hike, ice cream in Lake City, and I took some time to do some water color painting! We left on Monday and came home on Wednesday! Here are some pictures from our camp site. One other fun thing is that when we were driving around, on our way back to our campsite a huge bear, that I think was big enough to be a grizzly!, came busting out of the foliage on the side of the road and ran across the road right in front of us and then broke through a fence and the folliage on the other side and went on his way! it was amazing...I got a few pictures with Paul's camera, but by the time we got it out the bear was pretty far away. I will try and get them on the blog next!

Twins in Montrose




Bryce, Kathryn and April visited Montrose while their Daddy was on a business trip. Vicente also visited for a bit when he dropped everyone off and when he came back from his trip.
It was so much Fun, and even though we tried to be relaxed, we were busy!

When visiting Taryn we went to the Aquarium which she loved and also to the LA zoo. we had such a good time. Taryn is very independent and likes to walk everywhere all by herself, and can walk very long distances! She also Loves the Water! Loves animals and bugs. She is especially interested in turtles, lizards and bees!
