Check out this post by my cousin Camilla, in tribute to our grandmother.

I couldn't have said it better.

I have so many fond memories of Gram- goodie bags for the drive home from her house, the annual Easter egg hunt, stories about her dogs, and the Chiquita banana song. :)

(I found this photo from the beach in 2005. Coincidentally, the same house we rented this year!)

We love Gram!

This is what we did last week!

(Almost) the whooooole Dickson Dynasty familia was in attendance. 52 people in all. Gathered in the best place ever.

The lady who started it all:

Unfortunately, I'm not a very conscientious picture taker. So most of these pictures are credited to other people. Oh well.

Boys playing football!

Also, most of these pictures are of the kiddies. They are just too fun.

Late night beach walks!

Pagie and Everett.

Adriel loved playing in the water with her cousins, or second cousins, whatever my cousin's children would be called.

The babes fought over who got to have the Cabbage Patch doll hair crimper on their face. Brooklee won this one.

9/12 of the great-grandchildren.
Ryder, Adriel, Ellery (3 weeks old!), Dallyn, Brooklee, Sofie, Lucy, Carson, Everett.

And this is what was going on behind the camera:

Can't wait for the next one!

2 weeks from yesterday, camp will be all done. 2 weeks from today, we will fly back to Utah. And 2 weeks from Monday, we will start school.
