Our Familes come to Lincoln! They really DO love us!

Our families all came to Nebraska! We know it was to see Emilia and not us, but we like to pretend that it was for all. The whole album of pictures can be perused HERE.

1st - Pete and Linda came. Here they are with Emmie for the first time.

Next, the Thompsons all showed up and we went to the Fireworks (July 4th)

Then they left for a bit, and then came back and we went to the Omaha Zoo

THEN . . . all of the Clawsons (sans Rusty) came to visit too! Madness ensued.

Then we had Emilia's baby blessing on Sunday, July 13th . . . but I'll get to that in the next post.

Updates Forthcoming, I swear!

I apologize for the unfulfilled promise of updates. I'm currently up in Montana doing dissertation research and my internet has been a bit sketchy. In the meantime, I have managed to upload some pictures to our main photobucket site. There are 2 albums - The Cabin and The Cabin Part Deux. There will be a third one soon. Hopefully those pictures will hold you over until I get some thematic posts with pictures put up here. Patience, please.

Here's a quick teaser:

Moose right across from the dock. More on this moose later, we had a close encounter later on . . .

Updates Forthcoming

Hola all. For the last week or so, Julianne and I have been relaxing with family at the Buehner cabin in Mack's Inn (Island Park, Idaho) on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. Yesterday she flew down to AZ to be with family was I came up to Montana/Alberta for a multi-week dissertation research trip. Dusty archives, here I come!

Since the archives close for the evenings, I should have some free time to post pictures and stuff from the trip and from Emilia's baby blessing.

4th of July with the Fam

Pete, Linda, Lorinda, Matthew, Jenna and Cora all arrived to celebrate the 4th of July with us. We went to the fireworks at Oak Lake and had a great time. Jenna had made all of us glow in the dark jewelry - very fashionable. She gave Julianne the prettiest necklace - it resembled the flux-capacitor. I got a necklace too, but it lacked any time-traveling capabilities.

Here are some other new pics of the little munchkin.

Group Nap

Goodbye Johnsons

Farewell Johnsons!

One of the saddest days we've had in a long time.

Things we will miss about the Johnsons:
  1. Andrea doing flash-dance in public to embarress Jake
  2. Jake's no arm-swinging Napoleon run
  3. Seersucker pants and bow ties
  4. Not being the oldest of our friends
  5. The 5" TV screen
  6. Sour Patch Kids and Swedish Fish and Aquatic Friends
  7. Orange board-shorts and white t-shirts
  8. Jake making Andrea drive everywhere
