Family Photos

On Easter, my dad was wandering around with his camera taking pictures of the family.  Before they left Monday morning, he downloaded them onto my computer.  There aren't any pictures of Brett -- he was outside finishing up raking, sweeping, hosing down and whatever else he could think of to make the property look perfect.

The great room before everybody on Brett's side of the family arrived. 

My daughter, Camille, with my niece, Taylor.

My son, Kyle, looking forward to the feast.  He loves food as much as I do.

My mom who gave me a love of books.  She worries about my wardrobe -- jeans, breeches.... ugh.

My brother, Ted.  We don't agree on politics or much else but we do both have expensive obsessions: he loves sailing as much as I love riding.  I think he's the only one in my family who "gets" that part of me.

Yours truly, in the kitchen of course.

Another shot of Taylor and Camille.  Taylor adores Camille.

There were also some shots that my mom took of the property Sunday while she was outside reading and napping on the porch.

...and now they are all gone.  Camille and Kyle back to school; Ted and his family back to San Diego; my parents back to Baywood Park.


  1. Your family is beautiful, as is your farm! How nice to have everyone together!

    I love the golden poppies! I was born in San Francisco, and much of my family still lives out there. Most of what I remember of California is the scenery. I love the California golden poppies, but they just don't grow in New Jersey. Too much heat, cold and humidity. Keep posting pictures of them!

  2. and no pic of the photographer, either. :) your mother is a beauty!

  3. Beautiful house, beautiful family and everything looks just perfect : )
