Welcome to the Dwight and Velna Blood Family Blog

The purpose of the Dwight and Velna Blood family blog is to provide a gathering place to collect family history, photos, family news, memorabilia, and whatever else we can think of.  Let's all see where we can take it.

Hey, I have cute kids too!

Okay, so maybe they are a little older than Stacey's, but they are still cute. Especially at the BYU football games. Go Cougars! Only a few more weeks (like 8) until football starts. Yay!!

Kids cuter than Kobe

It's time for the egregiousness that has become this blog to be moved from top spot! And so I present you with pictures of something MUCH cuter. My kids!

A couple of weeks ago, the kids caught a garter snake out in the yard. The snake got to go on many adventures and traveled far and wide. Mostly in the grimey hands of a six year old. It's really a miracle they didn't kill the poor snake.

On the 16th, Andrew turned 10! He had a fabulous birthday (for details visit my blog), and I now feel even older than before! I can't believe I'm old enough to have a ten year old! Now that's just scary!

And finally, Andrew and Lillie had their first ever piano recital. It was nothing big, but they did great and it was fun to see! (Again, for more details, see my blog!)

Phew! I feel better now. I could hardly come here anymore knowing I would have to stare at Clenched Jaw! My kids are WAY cuter, if I do say so myself!

Hidden Garden Tour - Highland homes

Backyard of the first house we saw in Highland. It actually "connects" to the second house by way of the pond. The pond is huge.
The steps coming down the other side of the pond. I really liked all the contrasting shades of green along the path.

This is in the backyard of the second home we saw in Highland. The view is from the back patio and courtyard area. Very inviting!

Hidden Garden Tour - Alpine homes

This is from the first house we went to. This is right off their back patio and behind it is a lovely rose garden.
This is the arch leading to the pathway through the rose garden. Very beautiful!

The beautiful garden path through the roses.

This is the back courtyard for the second house we saw in Alpine. Very colorful and I especially liked the pots of flowers on the wall.
