The rest of the visit.

A visit with family makes even the mundane activity a good time. Hal and Barbara sat on the porch as Bernie mowed the lawn.

We did go out for pizza one night, Chinese food another night, and restaurant up near Snowbird, where we sat on another deck and enjoyed looking at another mountain and more birds at feeders. The drive up there was what it was really all about.

Mostly it was just a time to relax and just enjoy the time together. Hal later said how neat it was that none of us turned a television on even once.

Take pictures, talk, stare at the mountains, the sunset, the flowers, the birds.

Repeat the next day.

And the next.

I could use a lot more days like that.

My favorite shot: I finally caught Hal with a smile.

He is a happy soul; it is just that like most men, he isn't inclined to grin a lot.

So I was watching for his smile, and had my camera ready for it when it came.
Come back anytime...Utah awaits you, and if you want, I'll even get you some of Utah's favorite Frog Eye Salad if you want some next time!

Looks like you have a perfect deck...That's how I feel when I go to Europe. Get up,stare, eat, enjoy the beauty, go to bed...get up, and repeat it all over again.
When I make my road trip, I will be sure to drop in and do the same.

Are you serious - frog eye salad!?

Looks like a great visit. And Hal looks good wearing his grin.
