Uncle Larry's Funeral

I recently attended my Uncle Larry's funeral in Grand Junction, CO.

While funerals are a horrible reason to get was nice to see all of my extended family, most of which I haven't seen in years. I was excited to introduce Chris to them. They are anxious to get Chris to the golf course.
There was a pretty embarassing incident. I was taking Chris to my cousins table, to show him off. He began pulling the chair out. I thought he was pulling it out for me. I thought, "Wow, that's sweet of him, he usually doesn't do this." Turns out, he was taking the chair for himself, so I could sit by my cousins. Boom! I landed flat on the floor! Everyone there laughed. I even got applause. I ended up with a couple of bruises. It was a serious fall. I'm at least glad everyone got a laugh out of it. I don't even think Chris feels bad about it, "I should've seen it coming." Haha!

My sister, JoAnn, and my cousin, Curtis, have been long time friends. It makes me laugh now, but when I was a kid, I had the BIGGEST crush on Curtis! I guess stuff like that only happens in Wyoming!?

I was sad JoAnn didn't get to bring her kids. They're busy with school, sports, and the school choir show or something. Doesn't it suck living so far away? I hate missing everything they're in.

My mom & dad recently visited as well. It's always nice to see them, though I usually take a backseat to the grandkids. It's understandable, I do have cute nieces & nephews! My mom & dad are getting old. I hate it. I remember my grandma playing a huge role in my life growing up, I worry my children won't get to have the same experiences, either because we don't live close to my parents, or because I'm waiting too long to have kids. Either way, it worries me. I love my parents! Aren't they just the cutest couple?

You are so funny! I thought stuff like that only happened to me! Ha, ha!

I know, it must suck being so far away from a lot of your family - Neil hates being so far away from his family too! :(
