I'm so predictable... However lovely, it's still a rut

Mel is home from BYU for the summer. No pics. Suzie had a great soccer season. No pics. (Well, nothing to show off - but see below...)Tim and I quietly celebrated 35 years of marriage. No pics. Lots of pictures of sunsets. I am so predictable, so I guess it's a rut... Nevertheless, I do have some silly and some pleasant images to share on this family photo album disguised as a blog. See what you think...
Suzie reacting to the goal point that lost them the championship. She rocked all season, but in the end was defeated by an opposing goalie who got to the ball a nano-second before her, every time; and a defender on the other team who was probably instructed, "Don't let Suzie Cox get that ball!" By the way, the winning team was also Century, so it's slightly okay. Go CHS!
Does this NEED any explanation?? (It's the exterior shell of two lightbulbs he's playing with, in case you were curious.)
This is Suzie's serious soccer walk. Just thought you'd want to see it (Since I have no awesome action shots. Woe is me).
It's so hard to catch the true, rich color and stunning clarity of a sunset. Sigh. Still, I will share some more because - well, because I want to...
And, last but far from least, here are some smiles/smile makers from the most recent AZ trip:
Don't they make it all worth it? Indubitably. Sorry it's not everyone. I always want equal coverage but seldom achieve it. Life is like that. Thanks for visiting!

I'm even scaring ME. When I see that I haven't even loaded any photographs since my last post, I know this blog is in danger of extinction. And thus my family record. I blame it on advancing technology, and I am most definitely tech-handicapped. Pictures are taken on phones, everyone loads to Fb, my good-quality camera is too bulky to enjoy taking it to most things (and not good-quality enough for some family member's standards), so I fail to record the vital moments of life. I'm whining. Or making excuses. I will post soon. As soon as I take a few more pictures, and catch my breath from the end of Seminary and a busy gymnastics teaching schedule (both done for now). And plant the garden. And rid the yard of dandelions and thistle... Okay, maybe I better not wait THAT long.
