And Whittaker-ness was in the Air

Alternate post titles:
Reunited and it Feels so Good!
Minus 3 Plus 1

In celebration of summer and family-ness, we had a gathering on Saturday here on the farm. The first time it has been just my family all together since Christmas. Well, at least almost all together- as much as we can be, since Danny, Betsy, and Aaron are half a world away.

And we were so glad that Uncle Jeff joined the festivities. We hope he becomes a regular part of our gatherings.

Grandma and Grandpa, we are SO glad that you have moved to the Metro area just so's we can see more of you!

Matt having some quality Daddy time with the kids...

So cute in her little hoodie (thank you Auntie M, it fits perfectly!)

Eating his first toasted marshmallow of the season, and from the looks of it, not so sure what to think of that sticky mess on his face!

Uncle Timmy, Auntie Heather, and Baby Beniah in utero with Katie. Uncle Andy, Auntie Kim and Donny, who is now walking (yeah Donny!). Oh, and is it still a secret???

Did I mention that Auntie Jo ALSO moved to our area? We are happy, happy, happy!

One of our amazing sunsets over Bear Creek Canyon. Yes, people, this is the view from our home, and we really do feel blessed on a daily basis.

Donny taking one last bleary-eyed gaze at the fire before heading home.

And if that wasn't enough Whittaker time for you, go to my Mom's blog to see some more photos, including one that features my impressive athletic skills. :)
