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.

Tailgate for the BYU-Washington game

We had an abbreviated tailgate party for the BYU-Washington game. Monica, who usually brought a half dozen friends was in California with Michelle and leaves soon for her mission in Minneapolis.  We fried in the 90 plus degree heat but BBQ chicken breasts were welcome.  Jake is holding Jack, who belongs to Megan and Allan.

Amanda, Now and Once Upon a Time

Granddaughter Amanda, completed two years at Weber State College, now medical office receptionist in Denver, soon headed back to college.

More family reunion photos

No family reunion would be complete without Grandpa doing this:

Lucky for me, I was doing the same thing! And of course there was some lawn bowling, along with many other fun games!

But you need a little food to make it an official success. Lucky for us, we had some fabulous grillers!

And of course I have to include beautiful Great-grandkiddos!

And some proud Grandparents!

It was wonderful to see everyone and I know that we had a very lovely day!

My cute kiddos

Last week, my older kids participated in a piano recital. I've been their teacher so far and I'm so proud of my little pianists!

After the recital, my little girls had a fabulous time running around together! They are stinkin' cute if I do say so myself!

We are enjoying our summer vacation and are doing all the good things like staying up too late and sleeping in and swimming a lot! I hope you all are doing well and I look forward to seeing you at the end of the month!

The Wicked Witch of Kayenta

Actually, this is a test photo to see if I could upload it in Blogspot, since it will not upload in Typepad. And it did.  It looks like Penrose between the river bridge and the highway anyway.

Happy Fourth!

My parents and my brother came over for some good, wholesome, American BBQ and Fireworks on the fourth. Our street was hopping with activity and it became a regular block party. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

And, because I can, I also added a couple pictures of the kids from the last few weeks:

More Father's Day Photos at Ron and Lani's 2010

Velna and Dwight
Allan and Megan

Ron thinks he is so funny.  Instead of another George W. Bush greeting card this Father's Day, he gives me a LA Lakers tie.  Almost as bad.
