To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

July 4th at Pepperwood

You can't tell by the pictures but it was very cloudy and then started to rain. But it didn't stop some of the clan from swimming. They had the pool to themselves so that was one plus.

We couldn't not have our now annual family picture with pea pods on the ears and nose.

Twas a great day. Volleyball was a great family bonding experience. All I can remember is getting beat at every sport I played that day. I guess my day of triumph awaits, like the good book says, "lose a lot and someday you'll win."
