Siblings in Safford and Silver

While we were in NM, we went over to Safford/Thatcher to visit my sister Carolyn. She was having a BBQ to celebrate the 4th of July, and we never could pass up free food. It was so much fun to spend time with all the family there, eating good food and visiting. Erik had a pretty good time playing with his cousin Wyler, who he met for the first time on this trip. They're only about a month apart, so it was really fun to watch them interact. 

 It was also fun to watch my mom, she was in Grandma heaven with both her grand-babies in one spot.

 While we were all there, with video cameras rolling, Wyler took his first independent steps. It was pretty exciting!

 After a week in Animas, it was time to head north for Stanley and the Mower family waiting for us there. We did make one stop on the way though, in Silver City, to stay with Marquette and Cameron.
 I didn't take many pictures while we were there, but we had a lot of fun for the short time we spent there. We found a tarantula, which Ethan was so excited about. We've yet to see any of those in Mississippi (and I doubt we ever will)!
 Ethan was so excited about this big guy, he really wanted Cameron to come share in the fun...
 Unfortunately, Cameron wasn't so sure he was interested...
 Monday morning we kidnapped Marquette and headed over Emory pass and through the mountains up towards Stanley. The view was spectacular, it's been so long since I've seen something like this!
