Uncle Gerald came for a visit!

Russell is the oldest of 10 children. 6 boys (we are missing Robert here) and 4 girls. Russell is just under 6'2", so you can see here, these are some tall guys! Most of the sibs are here in So.Cal. exceptions being Barbara in Oakland, and Gerald and his crew in North Carolina. Fabulous thing is when Jordan was serving in North Carolina, his first area was smack dab in Gerald and Kim's Stake, so since he was a Spanish speaking Elder....he was able to go to their home for his First Thanksgiving and Christmas in Raleigh. Too cool. They took very good care of him. A few years and a few beard hairs later.....

Gerald took a bit of a detour to come and see the family over the weekend between business stops. The guys went to a Jazz concert/show in L.A. on Saturday night, then last night the family came together to do what we do best, eat, talk, laugh and enjoy the lovin'!
So here are some pics of the clan and our fun with fab Uncle Gerald. Getting ready to pull the little cousins in the wagon...
Thomas is ready for a ride!Weeeeee!!!Marie is the baby of the family....here with her fun hubby Rick (parents of Lucy, Thomas, and Wally..Aunt Sara and her little Kate-ers!
Here's to enjoyin' the FAM!
